Lessons from DAD: EAS Testing - ENCO Systems - Blog - png


Running an EAS weekly test, if not done carefully, can interfere with your programming or your valuable considerations. In this month’s Advice from DAD, we show you how you can originate an RWT without interrupting your programming.
The DAD to EAS application included with your DAD package can communicate with your EAS encoder/decoder over your station’s local area network. This enables you to send weekly tests and receive notifications from the EAS unit all within the familiar DAD interface. These commands can be fired from the arrays or can be dropped into the Presenter slots or Playback Machine at random times each week.
You can create a command cut to pause playout, play an intro and outro, and send a command to the EAS unit to run the test. Pausing playout will ensure your listeners do not miss the story they have been listening for or their favorite verse of a song on account of your EAS test. When the test is finished and the outro has played, playout is resumed and your listeners will not have missed a beat.
Additionally, the operator can be notified when an alert has been received or when an alert is being sent. This helps to provide advanced notice even when the EAS unit is located outside the studio.
A step-by-step instructional document can be found via the ENCO Knowledge Base.
