Adelaide, February 2014 – Professional Audio Technology Pty Ltd in cooperation with ENCO Systems announced today the supply, installation, configuration and commissioning of a ENCO DAD system for Radio Adelaide.
Following a rigorous tendering process, ENCO’s DAD system was chosen as the most powerful and flexible solution to be able to deal with the very unique and challenging requirements at Radio Adelaide. The new DAD system consists of a virtualised main DAD server environment, which provides 5 on-air studios connected as clients with the entire content for Radio Adelaide’s 24/7 operations. In addition 25 administration and ingestion terminals are connected to the system to provide more than 400 volunteers with access to pre-produce, prepare and refine more than 75 different on-air programs.
Radio Adelaide’s General Manager Deborah Welch commented “…After a thorough RFP process, only the DAD system was able to meet our brief, including by being prepared to add new functionality that will now be applied across the DAD product internationally. It's a powerful system that we know can develop with us, and can assist in developing our future. The PAT and ENCO teams went out of their way to understand our special needs, and meet them. Their preparedness to spend the time to understand our unique environment was critical there, and was reinforced each step of the way."
Radio Adelaide went live with its new DAD system on the 11th of February at 3:25pm. PAT’s Managing Director Patrick Salloch congratulated “This whole project has been a perfect example of the customer service commitment ENCO brings to their users, while also providing the most flexible playout automation system in the world. I would like to thank and congratulate the Radio Adelaide, ENCO and PAT teams for delivering a very complex, customised and powerful system on time and budget. My team and I are proud to have been part of this project and to represent ENCO in this country."
ENCO’s General Manager, Ken Frommert, added that “ENCO is happy to have been chosen by Radio Adelaide and we are looking forward to a long and productive cooperation between our organizations.”
