aixtream Dashboard Widgets

Tobias would like to present you the aixtream Dashboard widgets.

The aixtream Dashboard also found in the fernStudio is fully customizable. Through the various widgets you can create a Dashboard that easily allows you to control and monitor the device from one menu.

 Widget 1: The Stream Groups widget allows the user to start, pause and stop multiple connections at once. This is useful to quickly handle multiple unicasts which are always meant to be handled together or streaming the same content in multiple qualities (as often used in OTT streaming). A version of the widget specifically meant for handling the simultaneous recording of streams also exists.

 Widget 2: The Balance Control widget is most often found in use for the fernReport but can also be useful for users of the fernStudio. This widget allows the user to adjust the volume and balance of up to 4 input signals all at once in a single little window. Each signal is represented by a dot in a 2-dimensional space into which the user can think themselves. Moving a dot closer to the user (i. e. down) increases the volume of that input, the reverse lowers the volume (as if the sound source had gotten closer). Likewise, moving the dot to the right or to the left changes the balance accordingly as if the sound source had changed places spatially

 Widget 3 : “DTMF”stands for Dual-tone multi-frequency and is a telecommunication signaling system, which normally uses telephone keypads to send multi-frequency signals. Accordingly, the DTMF widget is an interface allowing the user to send DTMF signals as part of an audio transmission. For this purpose, it accurately recreates a DTMF keypad and also adds the function to pre-program and se

 Widget 4: The SIP Connection Overview is a widget to quickly establish and monitor any number of SIP connections. There is a “Basic” and an “Advanced” view of this widget, which ensures that the average user is not overwhelmed with unnecessary options, while users who require in-depth configuration can still handle it through this widget. For the basic user starting a call is as simple as entering the intended target address clicking dial. For the advanced users there are also options to adjust used codecs on the fly, mute input or output and change the used source SIP account.
