?Since we started shipping OnTheAir Node, OnTheAir Live and OnTheAir Manager we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of customers who want to output multiple channels and control them from anywhere on their network. And as we add new customers, it is their feedback that drives the Softron team to provide additional features and capabilities. We can do this relatively simply because we invested a lot of time and resources to create the underlying technological architecture. It is what makes third party integration so easy as well? said Daniel Tapie, CEO of Softron Media Services.
