You can expect to hear a lot more from Northside Radio 99.3 this year as they get out and about with their brand new Tieline ViA! The northern Sydney community station recently purchased both the ViA and Merlin Plus codecs and are very excited to now have the tools for first class remote broadcasts.
With the latest features including a touchscreen matrix editor, EQ, compression and limiting on all inputs, user-friendly HTML5 Toolbox Web-GUI and a host of transport stream options, the ViA takes remote live broadcasting to a whole new level.
