Small and simple to use

 

You can set the size of the application yourself. Maybe you want it small so it does not disturb other Windows programs or you like it to fill the whole screen.

When you whish to change channel or make a selective call you can also choose to bring forward the complete radio control panel, see Radio Types.


The secret is our Mimer Network Interface which connects any two-way radio to a computer network or the Internet.


By using a small windows program and the computers ordinary sound card you can control the radio and speak over it. All audio is sent in data packages over the network.

 

  • More than one dispatcher can control the radio in parallel.
  • Every operator can control more than one radio.
  • Every operator can monitor all his radios at the same time.
  • Even during transmit the monitored audio comes in from the other radios.

 

 

Every standard computer in the network is a possible radio operator position.

 

Mimer SoftRadio is an ideal solution for taxi or trucking companies where there aren't enough operator positions for the radio. Now you don't have to walk over to the table were the dispatch console is. Every office computer can be a dispatch position.

 

 

Mimer SoftRadio application with one radio connected.

 

 

Mimer SoftRadio application with many radios connected.

 

Many radios can be controlled from one computer.

 

If the same computer shall control more than one radio the panel will expand, one layer for each radio.

The operator can choose monitor and transmit for each radio. A click on the channel display will expand the virtual radio control panel for selection of channels and selective calling.

 

An arrow shows the radio last used. The channel with an arrow is were an external PTT button will function.

 

The "Wait button" is an option that sends out a tone burst to the mobiles, so that they will know that they should wait. This is useful when the operator is busy. It will stay lit until a dispatcher transmits on that radio or chooses to shut it off.

 

As an alternative to the Wait button, a "ReSend button" can be activated. The ReSend button will transmit your last voice message again. You can chose to resend on any radio connected to your SoftRadio, and you can resend many times.
