Lessons from DAD: Day Parting

Day parting can be done very easily in the DAD Cut Modify window. When modifying a cut, a user can specify when the cut should be active as defined by the Start Date and Kill Date and Active Time and Kill Time. When a cut is ‘active’ it can be played in an automated fashion, such as with a playlist, or can be inserted manually into the presenter slots or other playback machine.
When day parting is on, the cut can be played between the Active Time and Kill Time every day, according to the Active Day of Week check boxes. When day parting is turned off, the cut will become active on the Start Date at the Active Time and will expire on the Kill Date at the Kill Time.
As you can see, day parting within DAD can provide a very flexible means of setting when a cut should be able to playout. These setting can either be saved when re-recording a cut or can be cleared out, depending upon user preference.
To toggle day parting on your system, use the ‘Day Parting’ switch found in the ‘Misc. Defaults’ section of the settings menu. For questions or assistance with setting up day parting, contact ENCO Systems Technical Support at (248) 827-4440 and select option 2.
