A basic computer is all you need. Audio OnLine
includes our software and the special modem(s)
that you install in your computer. A basic
486 computer will work fine. Even an older
386 will work for a 2-Line or 4-Line system.
Audio OnLine runs in DOS; you don't need Windows,
a mouse, sound card or other modems. The video
monitor can be either monochrome or color.
OnLine is easy to install. You don't need
an engineer or telecommunications consultant.
It's as easy as installing a regular modem
in a PC. The software loads in a few minutes,
and you're ready to go!
can have numerous news stories on-line, with
no limit to the length of the recording. Interviews,
sound bites, news wraps, actualities....all
available, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day,
without anyone needed to answer a phone and
put a tape in a cart machine. Just load your
messages and walk away! Audio OnLine operates
unattended, and lets the caller select messages
from your menu: "For the Senator Smith
soundbite about Social Security, press 1;
For Senator Jones comments about Medicare,
press 2; for the complete Senator Smith interview,
press 3; for the edited short version, press
4;"....etc. You can have hundreds of
reports on-line. Recordings can be easily
added, deleted, saved, or reloaded at a later
date. The computer monitor displays your text
description for each message for quick identification
of each recording.
messages is quick and easy, either over a
phone line or "on-site". For recording
on-site, the optional Line Simulator is recommended,
especially if audio quality is important.
It lets you call into the system and record
messages, without actually calling through
a telephone company line. The Line Simulator
has Mic and Line inputs, plus a Recording
Level control and a VU Meter. Record from
a microphone, a prepared tape, a mixer, or
a digital editor. If you're "on the road",
you can record new messages or update existing
messages from the field by calling them in
over a regular telephone line. It's as easy
as leaving a message on an answering machine.
Audio OnLine's Password Protection System
provides security against unauthorized recording.
OnLine can answer from 2 to 16 phone lines
simultaneously, with each line answered independently
of the others. You can configure the system
to answer all lines with the same message
(or menu), or "split" the system,
so that different lines are answered with
different messages (or menus). Broadcast station
groups can use this feature so that Audio
OnLine answers some lines with the "KXXX"
menu, while other lines are answered with
the "KYYY" menu... essentially two
(or more) independent Audio OnLine systems
operating in one computer.
Audio OnLine is affordable. The price depends
upon the number of phone lines you need to
OnLine can always be upgraded. You can start
with a 2-Line system, then add more lines
as needed in the future. The cost to upgrade
is simply the difference between the original
and upgraded system.

NOTE: Audio OnLine is not "Voice
Mail". Althought the system can record
a caller's message, this function is normally
used for updating messsages or loading new
messages. It is not intended for callers to
leave voice-mail messages, because Audio OnLine
holds only one message per "mailbox".
Also, Audio OnLine cannot transfer incoming
calls to other extensions or phones. If you
need these functions, you'll need a conventional
computer-based voice-mail system, available
from various business telephone system suppliers.
