With social distancing and travel restrictions in place, the Onset Assistant™ is the safest and most efficient way to communicate with the rest of your team — as if they were on set.

"Every conversation I have with someone is about solving a problem and moving the production forward. The Onset Assistant saved me from being involved in many conversations as the crew was using the system to solve their own issues, which by proxy, saved the company time."
