CMS Lite serves from a single studio up to multiple studio installations and integrates with Studer's range of OnAir consoles. CMS Lite uses off-the-shelf standard IT components, and retains much of the functionality of the large CMS System, including DJ Self-op, switchboard operator and producer modes, waiting rooms and database support.

For example, an external caller is first put into a waiting room. The caller's number is automatically displayed; his name may be saved in the database, together with some additional information. If that person should call again, this information will be immediately displayed.

After a first, introductory talk, the screener can drag-and-drop the caller to the studio where he immediately appears in the fader area of the console. The DJ can talk to the caller and bring him on-air at a single touch.

Outside calls can also be made by using either the on-screen keypad or the short-cut buttons for the telephone directory integrated in the database.

The CMS Lite system can start small, but may be extended later into an enterprise-wide server/client based system. If more operators are required to act in the background, more clients can be installed. If higher quality is desired, an optional codec can be added.
