AirServer Lite is a Windows based playout automation software solution designed for 24/7 operation in virtually any environment: broadcast studios, remote sites, schools, shopping malls…

Its design was based on professional broadcast video servers so it brings features that you can’t find on other playout software: AirServer Lite includes a database to store metadata (ID, description, duration, note…), searches database and sorts results and also allows trimming and sub clipping of video files. 
 
It overlays a variety of graphics elements: images, crawls, tickers, clocks, image sequences… Tickers and crawls can gather weather information automatically and display weather reports at preprogramed times.
 
Beside being able to play a large number of video formats, AirServer Lite allows Live input events on playlist and in combination with Windows Media and Flash streaming AirServer Lite is the most versatile playout automation software on the market.
