Station Line In

Grey system button (Top Right) Line In audio source is local input on the player computer at the studio. It is not a remote connection. In the case of station with a soundcard, the digital satellite feed goes into that input. Works in conjunction with Line In scheduling feature feature on the server, where you can schedule line in content such as mixing board or satellite receiver. This is the exact some input that’s connected to the line in button on the live assist.
