fernReport

The fernReport is a portable audio codec device with touchscreen input. Powered by the aixtream software it has been tuned specifically for responsive touch controls and widgets specifically meant to facilitate effortless input. As the name implies it is primarily designed for use by reporters on-the-go or stadio commentators, but it is also of interest for anyone interested in directly setting up their audio transmissions on the device without requiring any additional devices for control and monitoring.

Touch Control

The fernReport offers all the control and monitoring features common to all devices powered by aixtream, but combines it with an intuitive touchscreen to enable control directly on the device. The responsive 10″ touch display ensures that widgets can be used reliably no matter where you are. Calls can be started with the familiarity of a smartphone, faders can be adjusted almost as if you had a physical mixer in front of you. The touch controls synergize perfectly with the great selection of widgets in the Dashboard, enabling you to create your “touchscreen studio”.

Portable

Designed to be portable, the fernReport can be easily carried to wherever it is needed. Since you also need no other device besides the fernReport it is especially easy to get from A to B. No need to log around an audio codec and any external devices for control access, like a laptop. For this reason it is also build to be robust, so it can endure the demands of constant transport.
Optionally, a carrying case can be acquired for even safer and easier transport between different events.

4 MIC/Line In, 4 Headphone Out

The fernReport has all the inputs and outputs you need for a professional reporter or commentator job. With 4 MIC/Line IN and 4 Headphone OUT, the fernReport has the necessary I/O to support even larger interviews or multiple commentators at once including phantom power for the microphones. This also minimizes the need for multiple additional devices, as even one fernReport can support many participants at once.
