How does DAD Work?
DAD is a complete playout solution scalable from the largest multinational television or radio broadcast application to small closed circuit systems found in professional sports venues. DAD is a third generation software system built upon ENCO’s proven and widely accepted family of products in use at thousands of facilities worldwide. Running on standard off-the-shelf PC hardware, DAD’s complete toolkit allows broadcasters to implement an audio delivery and automation system that precisely meets their needs. Combining rich functionality of multiple reproducers or “players” and recorders, flexible array panels and user defined hot keys, DAD enables broadcasters to optimize performance for their specific requirements. It provides a platform for integrating the many sources of content flowing into today’s modern broadcast environment including news, traffic, weather, scheduling as well as reconciliation to billing and corporate information systems. DAD is available as software only, or as a turnkey system delivered with ENCO’s tested and proven hardware configurations.
All of the below ‘virtual machines’ are included with each DAD license.
Seamless Console Integration:
Most consoles can be wired to interface perfectly with Presenter. Start buttons on the log event stack can turn on and off microphones, and console buttons can start any desired event. ENCO also offer an optional HotShot for 84 additional Fast Fire buttons that are always ready.
No two DAD installations are alike. In fact, many sites use DAD in completely different ways in different studios.
That’s just one of the major benefits of using DAD; it’s incredibly flexible to meet your needs.
