System can distribute content to multiple transmitters and collect playback information for logging.
NAB 2012, Booth C2623 — ENCO and Nautel have teamed up to bring advanced capabilities to the Push Radio™ system first shown at last year’s NAB.
Push Radio is a program distribution model where content is stored in the transmitter with playlists executed at the same point. Because this model does not rely on real-time audio delivery, content can be delivered via low-cost Internet connections. Different content may be delivered to each transmitter, allowing each site to have local content in its programming.
The ENCO Push Radio interface provides audio delivery via the ENCO DAD Automation platform, an industry leader in program automation. The system automatically updates files and playlists on each transmitter. It also pulls back “as played” logs and reconciles the logs with music and traffic schedulers.
“With the ENCO interface, Push Radio brings flexibility and ease to broadcasters,” said Chuck Kelly, Nautel Director of Sales. “This system is ideal for educational or religious broadcast networks who have transmitters spread over a wide geographic area.”
“We jumped at the chance to partner with Nautel on this exciting project,” commented Patrick J. Campion, ENCO Director – Product Development and Radio Sales. “Our companies have a long history of staying on the forefront of broadcasting technology and the ENCO Push Radio Interface is another example of how great innovations can help broadcasters make great radio with the tools provided by ENCO and Nautel.”
The ENCO Push Radio interface will operate on any VS Series or new NVLT Series transmitter.
