ZedAlpha Digital Wireless Monitoring Software
Designed by Orbital’s Theo Holloway; ZedAlpha boasts an extremely friendly user interface. It runs on the Windows platform with a universal PCI interface and is a thoroughly modern solution for all complex theatre and broadcast wireless monitoring applications.
ZedAlpha allows the remote monitoring of all the principle parameters of the Zaxcom TRX series transmitters.. Parameters monitored include: remaining battery life, RF levels and audio levels. Plus, an expanded view of each channel’s data stream for the last minute for analysis and fault finding. Also, the software can be used to fully program the receiver functions, including encryption levels, enabling secure and confidential transmissions.
A very powerful software tool, ZedAlpha is able to simultaneously monitor an astonishing 128 receiver channels, mirroring the huge multi-channel potential of the Zaxcom system.
Theo Holloway commented: “We set ourselves the challenge of developing software that picked up where traditionally non-friendly solutions left off. That’s why ZedAlpha can resize its graphics to make best use of the available screen space whether you’re using 8 or 60 or 128 channels of audio. The software is fully networkable allowing multiple simultaneous monitoring stations. Plus it incorporates a version of Orbital’s bespoke popular show-saving Radio World instant messaging utility.”
Zaxcom wireless and ZedAlpha are currently being deployed with huge success on a number of West End musical productions including Cabaret and Little Shop of Horrors, plus it’s being used with great effect on the UK tour of Mel Brookes’ The Producers.
