PlayoutONE Version 5 Now Available For Users


Aiir, a provider of software and services for the broadcast media industry, has released the newest version of its radio automation software, PlayoutONE.

Version 5 of PlayoutONE by Aiir is focused on increasing speed and efficiency, allowing broadcasters to get more things done with ease.

PlayoutONE’s industry-leading browser-based remote broadcasting tools, LiveMIC and WebVT, have had a major update. They’ve been rewritten to enable improved audio quality, increased creativity with an advanced segue editor and enhanced flexibility with a new custom voice tracks feature. This allows presenters working from anywhere to broadcast across multiple stations sharing the same log, but with per-station variations, making it ideal for networks and groups.

A new Audio Engine allows multiple stations to be run from a single piece of hardware. Stations can share the same audio library, with custom audio routing to remove the complications of setting up spin-offs. It’s easy to add additional stations when you need them, making it much more flexible so you can change an adapt your offering.

Other updates include:

  • xLog – a new utility designed for sports and special event broadcasts.
  • A new Media Editor for quick and easy editing of audio.
  • A re-designed segue editor to make custom transitions using the new envelope functionality.
  • A new Command Manager app to make it easy to build custom commands.

This is the first major update to the app since the merger of Aiir and PlayoutONE at the beginning of 2023 and will be available as a free update to existing customers.

Like previous versions, PlayoutONE v5 is designed for all broadcasters and is available in Standard, ideal for individuals, and Pro versions.

It’s also available as part of our new “On Aiir” package deal. This combines PlayoutONE v5, website CMS, mobile apps, Alexa skill and Studio Inbox into one price or on barter via Premiere Networks.

Dave Brierley-Jones, COO at Aiir, said, “As broadcasting becomes increasingly agile, we’re giving stations the power to do so much more with this update. These new features will give them so many more options over their output to bring their creativity to life, but we’ve made sure it’s still as friendly and easy to use as ever.”
