OnTheAir Manager 3.2.1 - Client-Server application for OnTheAir Node and OnTheAir Server.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 7 hours 20 min ago


OnTheAir Manager is part of the OnTheAir Node client-server suite of products and is used to prepare the schedules, to preview the clips, check which clips are ready to air, and to take control of multiple OnTheAir Nodes and all this from a single networked workstation. OnTheAir Manager uses a graphical calendar style interface presenting a unique and never before achieved ease of use for scheduling complex programming of single or multiple channels. If you can use iCal, you'll be able to use OnTheAir Manager. Scheduling a TV station for 24/7 playout has never been so easy.

OnTheAir Manager can control any number of channels from one single computer. Just select the channel you want to control any immediately start modifying its schedule. As OnTheAir Manager and OnTheAir Node are built with a client-server architecture, you can even control your play out channel miles away. This is ideal for solutions where the broadcast operations (uplink to satellite, stream to internet) are in one location and the scheduling is done from a different location.

OnTheAir Manager will work with live events. Live events are as easy to schedule as a regular clip. Just create your Live event, and drag and drop it in your schedule. Live events can be handled by taking control of a video router (Blackmagic Design Videohub, AJA Kumo or most other routers). It can also be handled simply by rebroadcasting the signal that gets in the input of your card, making it a really cost effective solution.

SoftRAID 5.6.4 - High-quality RAID management.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 7 hours 47 min ago


SoftRAID allows you to create and manage disk arrays to increase performance and reliability. SoftRAID allows the user to create and manage RAID 4 and 5 volumes, RAID 1+0, and RAID 1 (Mirror) and RAID 0 (Stripe) volumes. SoftRAID also provides "predictive disk failure", where users are alerted to potential disk failures even before they fail.

SoftRAID's intuitive interface and powerful feature set make this utility a must-have for any OS X Server admin, "Pro" user, photographer, digital-video editor, or desktop user who wants more reliable backup for his computer.



Version 5.6.4:

Note: SoftRAID 5.6.4 includes important bug fixes and changes that allow SoftRAID to be compatible with macOS 10.13 High Sierra. High Sierra involves a completely new file system (APFS) as well as major changes to the ker- nel, security and third-party software requirements, and the SoftRAID team has worked hard to ensure that SoftRAID will work flawlessly with High Sierra, although it does not yet support APFS. This means that currently, SoftRAID does not support creating, modifying or converting APFS volumes. However, SoftRAID’s certify, verify and monitoring features will work with APFS formatted disks. Full support for APFS will be included with SoftRAID version 6.

New Features:
  • With SoftRAID 5.6.4 ‘SoftRAID for ThunderBay’ has been renamed ‘SoftRAID XT’, and ‘SoftRAID Lite for ThunderBay’ is now ‘SoftRAID Lite XT’. (SoftRAID XT is a version of SoftRAID bundled with OWC hardware).
  • SoftRAID now reports the number of total bytes written for most SSDs. If available, this is displayed in the disk tile for the SSD (in SoftRAID’s main UI window). We will be adding support for additional SSDs in the future. If the total bytes written value does not appear for your brand of SSD, please contact support@softraid.com so we can add it.
  • Added support for future OWC products to SoftRAID XT.
Bugs Fixed:
  • SoftRAID 5.6.4 contains a work-around for a macOS bug which caused a kernel panic every time Apple’s Disk Utility program was used to erase a SoftRAID disk. This bug was introduced in Mac OS 10.12. With this work-around, the Mac no longer kernel panics but the Disk Utility application still hangs.
  • SoftRAID takes security very seriously, and all SoftRAID DMG files are now code signed, so users can be certain the image they download from our site is an unaltered DMG file.
  • SoftRAID 5.6.4 fixes a bug which caused the SoftRAID Tool to crash when volumes were unmounted or initialized using the command line interface.


  • OS X 10.6.8 or later
  • Support for TRIM commands on SSD's require OS X 10.7.5 or later
