The jock resistant broadcast console has arrived

It’s like using the touch screen on your smartphone or tablet only bigger. Much bigger.

All the faders and switches move with the precision you’d expect of top quality apps on your mobile or tablet.

On top of all that the new Helix from Logitek is jock resistant. There’s no reason to cry over spilt liquids like milk, coffee or tea anymore. They’ll normally just wipe away with a damp cloth. There are no mechanical moving parts to maintain either.

While the hardware was designed in the United States all the software was written here in Australia by Logitek Australia's Max Healey and Phil Hertenberger.

Virtual consoles, mostly in hybrid form, have been around for a while but the 28 inch Helix with its 4500 x 3000 (192 DPI) display is so flexible it can be set to work in the on-air or production studio, news booth or at an OB. And it can be networked to remotely power another console as shown in the video below. 

The software even works on your iPad.
