Smarts Broadcast Acquires On Air Digital
Emmetsburg, IA, and Dallas - Aug 1, 2001 - On Air Digital USA was acquired August 1, 2001, by Smarts Broadcast Systems. On Air Digital's general manager, John Schaab, emphasized that customer service would continue uninterrupted and that the Dallas office would remain open. Schaab further commented that the two companies' products complement each other well.
Smarts Broadcast manufactures the Smartcaster audio storage and playback system. On Air Digital manufactures two products: the Ultimate Digital Studio (UDS) and RadioSuite, which operates on Linux. At one time, On Air Digital was a part of TM Century, where the UDS system was first designed to control CD players. It later was enhanced to operate CD players and interface with other automated audio sources and now is a hard-drive automation system.
Smarts Broadcast will carry Smartcaster and UDS line. THese two products will also be the basis for new product cooperatives. All product manufacturing and administration will move to the Iowa office. The On Air Digital Sales and development teams will remain in Dallas. One support person will remain in Dallas to supplement the support team in Iowa, and both support locations will be trained in both systems.
