ENCO will showcase it’s second-generation WebDAD platform, which is a key component of the company’s “Studio in a Cloud” strategy showcase at the 2019 NAB Show. Part of ENCO’s enCloud family of solutions, the enhanced WebDAD will highlight how broadcasters can now take direct control of studio operations from any remote location with a web connection.
WebDAD empowers cloud-based operation through an updated, HTML5-enabled user interface. Users have the freedom of a fully-virtualised platform to remotely access and control their studio-based ENCO DAD radio automation systems – a benefit made all the more powerful with the addition of ENCO’s presenter on-air interface. This interface further optimises ENCO’s modular, touchscreen design for customising production workflows and providing instant access to media libraries, playlists and more.
Speaking about their product, Ken Frommert, President, ENCO said: “WebDAD has evolved to support a true ‘Studio in the Cloud’ operation that removes the limitation of maintaining an on-premises physical workstation. In addition to reducing operational costs at the station, WebDAD customers have broad control and playout capabilities across on-air presentation, playlist manipulation, voice tracking, and other workflow tasks. With the powerful ENCO presenter on-air interface, WebDAD is the most powerful and comprehensive browser-based interface on the market.”
Frommert added that WebDAD also helps stations work more freely with on-air and production talent around the world by making it easy to bring in part-time, contract, and remote staff to access the playout system from anywhere there is an internet connection.
ENCO will demonstrate the entire Studio in a Cloud workflow, including other radio solutions, at the 2019 NAB Show from April 8-11 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
