Flexibility is a word that broadcast vendors tend to use as a product highlight without much insight into specific benefits. We hear this word used to describe automation systems on a daily basis. However, when broadcasters are locked into the “single machine, single license” mindset of most vendors, is this truly what one would call flexible?
As radio broadcast models evolve into true multiplatform strategies, ENCO is forging a new path for automated streaming workflows. Instead of forcing customers into the traditional one station per machine model, ENCO users can support 16 channel streams from a single DAD workstation – with all channels visible from the main user interface. This enables traditional and pure internet radio networks to significantly reduce costs and complexity for the management and distribution of multichannel online services.
The ENCO automated streaming architecture can distribute multiple audio channels and associated data over IP directly to networked studio consoles. From there, the channels are sent over the content delivery network for streaming to web and mobile devices. Along with integration of remote voice tracking for offsite talent and multitrack editing software for enhanced production, broadcasters now have a highly scalable, affordable – and yes, flexible – automation toolset to support global streaming networks.
