ENCO to Demonstrate Revamped Remote Automation Interface at IBC2022 • RedTech

ENCO will showcase the next generation of its browser-based remote radio automation control solution at IBC2022. WebDAD 3.0 introduces a redesigned user interface and a completely revamped architecture that the company says will improve the user experience while establishing an extensible and scalable foundation for future capabilities.

WebDAD allows users to remotely manage and control ENCO DAD studio radio automation systems from anywhere with an internet connection. It offers remote access, from downloading content and editing playlists to voice tracking. The latest update enables new flexible remote working models for broadcasters by allowing users to efficiently manage their live operations even when staff are not physically at station facilities.

Foremost among WebDAD 3.0’s improvements is a modernized redesign of its browser-based user interface. ENCO says the updated layout makes operation even more intuitive and streamlines workflows for key features. Selectable dark/light modes allow users to tailor its appearance to their work environment and preferences. Responsive forms minimize the need to re-enter the same data in different workflow sections by maintaining information across interface screens. At the same time, performance optimizations improve the responsiveness of the interface to user actions.

Increased security

WebDAD 3.0 also enhances security with more granular control of user permissions, such as restricting access to specified libraries, functions, and systems. Additional updates include a simplified deployment model for easier installation and upgrades, improved cross-browser support, and new support for third-party accessibility helpers to improve usability for people with disabilities or disabilities.

The ability of staff to work remotely is key to enabling today’s broadcasters to maximize their flexibility, efficiency and operational resilience.

In addition to enabling remote management of on-site DAD systems, WebDAD also serves as the user interface for ENCO’s DAD Disaster Recovery (DAD-DR) solution. A cloud-based companion to DAD automation systems, DAD-DR provides a continuously synchronized clone of the broadcaster’s on-premises DAD deployment that is always ready to support scheduling and ad delivery in the event of a natural disaster or failure. critical technique. DAD-DR operators can use WebDAD to update playlists remotely, add new content, broadcast vocal tracks, and perform library maintenance even if their physical station is completely down or inaccessible.

“The ability of staff to work remotely is key to enabling today’s broadcasters to maximize their flexibility, efficiency and operational resilience,” said Ken Frommert, President of ENCO. “WebDAD 3.0 has been redesigned to meet the changing remote access needs of stations while providing an extensible and scalable platform for future functionality. We’re excited to let IBC attendees experience its improvements first-hand.
