The perfect solution

Thanks to its exclusive playout engine HDX RADIO 4 can manage audio only materials, audio+video materials or mix both with seamless transitions.

Manage multiple cameras automatically. Depending on your console, cameras can be activated by GPI when opening or closing a microphone or detecting audio on each microphone channel, changing cameras depending on who is speaking. For example if two people are talking the software will select a view of two cameras one next to the other, or if everybody is laughing it will select a wide-angle scene.

With vMIX you can create predetermined scenes, full screen, split screen of multiple cameras or videos, or picture in picture from different sources. Then HDX RADIO 4 will control vMIX selecting the best scenes for each moment according to assigned priorities.

vMIX® is a vMIX.com product and trademark. It is not distributed with Dinesat and must be acquired directly at vmix.com by the end user.

In order to use the microphone audio automatic detection feature an IP audio console is required (Axia or similar). If you have an analog or digital console (AES/EBU) you will need to send the signal to each microphone separately by a multiple channel audio card.



There are as many video directors as people, each with their own style so, why should all radios look alike? We believe each station, or even each program can have its own personality. It is not the same a newscast, an afternoon show or a talk show, each program have its own rhythm and deserves a camera director to suit their needs.

SMART DIRECTOR technology provides different automatic modes to operate cameras and video signals to create your own style.


There will be moments when you will use SMART DIRECTOR, and there will be moments to be a protagonist and make your own choices regarding different scenes or graphics texts. To help you we designed VIRTUAL DIRECTOR, a Web App for any PC or Tablet to be used by a Station operator, a live producer from the booth, the control or production.


Free console channels on digital audio networks and operate HARDATA HDX RADIO 4 through a remote control on a Tablet. It works as a console extension to manage each window as a channel.
