Preview the new Logitek Helix at NAB

Tags : 

Introducing the new Logitek Helix audio console.

In Partnership with Logitek Australia. Logitek has developed the Logitek Helix, it’s sixth generation of router-based digital consoles. Featuring a multi-touch interface and available in both physical and virtual editions. Helix provides users a touch-friendly experience across consoles, screens, tablets and phones.

Tap or swipe on Helix’s brilliant touchscreens to change sources, make bus assignments, or add EQ and dynamics to sweeten the mix. When your eyes need to be elsewhere while on the air, motorized faders and large on/off buttons make it easy to mix audio eyes-free.

When you’re out of the studio, Helix is easy to control from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop running any operating system. Helix meets the challenges of modern broadcasting. Which demands efficient use of physical hardware, while retaining the flexibility needed for multiple users and operational situations.

It’s a radically different approach to audio consoles.

Four products have been introduced in the Helix line:

Helix Radio is available in sizes from 6 to 24 faders. It includes a Monitor module and an HDMI output for a touchscreen meter/control bridge. Modules can be mounted in a single or split desktop frame.

Helix Television is available in sizes from 6 to 36 faders, with a Monitor module for master mixing. It incorporates two master mix buses (one 5.1, one stereo), four stereo aux buses and four stereo submasters; frame delay is available at every fader.

Helix Surface is a large format virtual console for the 28” Microsoft Surface Studio. The Helix interface fully mirrors the experience of physical Helix consoles. This allows it to be used in a variety of workflows. Helix Surface can be deployed for second control rooms, remote locations, or even as a replacement for a physical console. It presents full multi-touch capabilities on a 4500 x 3000 DPI adjustable screen.

The Helix interface also powers Logitek’s new vMix Touch. vMix Touch presents custom layouts across multiple devices and screen sizes. vMix Touch does not require a Windows PC or application, making it a true cross-platform multi-touch interface.


Coming this April to the NAB Show

ABE Show 2016

The year, OnAir Solutions was invited to join the ABE 2016 show as an exhibitor. It was a great opportunity to present OnAir Solutions, and the products we represent, to a focused audience of broadcast professionals. It was a great experience to be exhibiting along side our partners and peers in the industry. And meet with many interested attendees.


Some of the equipment we were focused on presenting at this show included:

  • HEVC encoding by Ateme. This was demonstrated with an Ateme CM5000 encoder, and DR5000 decoder pair. We could then present the input and output side-by-side to demonstrate the quality of encoding at various bit rates.
  • Rohde & Schwarz Venice 4K. The R&S®VENICE 4K is a future-ready, versatile ingest and playout platform for highly efficient TV production workflows up to 4K UHD-1.
  • Rohde & Schwarz Clipster. The R&S®CLIPSTER is the gold standard workstation for mastering and distributing feature films and episodic TV.
  • Panasonic VariCam35. features a dynamic range with 14+ stops of latitude and a wide color gamut, acquisition functions that
    support 4K/120fps uncompressed RAW recording
