On Air Digital's Ultimate Digital Studio II (UDS II) is an audio
management and control system that defines the state of the art in systems integration.
Unlike other systems available to broadcasters, the UDS II is based on the theory that a
radio station's programming is made up of several unique elements including commercials,
IDīs, network feeds, remotes, news and music.
The UDS II controls the systems that perform these tasks, integrating audio hard drive
storage, linear CD audio, network and remote feeds into one simple, easy-to-use control
What makes the UDS II so flexible is a combination of outstanding electronics and one of
the most powerful, yet easy-to-use operating systems on the market today.
The primary operating screen is the hallmark of simplicity and functionality.
