Booth N3413 Aveco’s ASTRA Studio production automation system integrates with hundreds of software and hardware products, and the company’s 25th anniversary edition of ASTRA Studio is updated with the News Story Designer, a function that allows reporters to specify how their stories are presented on air from inside iNews, ENPS, Octopus or other news systems.

Also new in this edition are variations on “floating shots” that enable live feeds to quickly be put onscreen to air and span multiple stories. Additional new features in ASTRA Studio include a 72-button video controller hand-controller and a new 8-, 16- or 24-channel flying fader audio mixer.
