Initially released as OtsJuke DJ in 1999, over the years OtsDJ has evolved considerably and more recently has also become a strong video product in addition to its long-standing reputation as the audio playout system of choice for professionals. Combining this with the fact it is used by five distinct market groups, it became apparent a name change was appropriate in order to better represent all markets. The new OtsAV name addresses this and on September 9th, 2007 Ots Labs was proud to launch OtsAV 1.77 as the first official OtsAV release.
In January 2008, Ots Labs launched three distinct product lines of the OtsAV brand - OtsAV DJ, OtsAV Radio and OtsAV TV. Each product line contains up to three different products, offering a wide range of options for customers to purchase the features they need for their particular use. Inspired by customer feedback and consultation, speaker/display/audience-based licensing restrictions were also abolished in favor of simple feature-based licensing. As such, all 1.85 products can broadcast to an unlimited audience through any medium.
Former modules (video, karaoke CD+G, scheduling) are no longer required as these are incorporated in the relevant products.
Here at Ots Labs we're excited about these changes and are committed to developing for all markets and strengthening the Ots Labs and OtsAV brand and profile across the board.
