On The NAB Exhibit Floor: ENCO Systems

ENCO Systems provides playout and automation system solutions for radio and television organizations. ENCO will introduce updates for its media operations manager (MOM) system, offering the industry’s most impressive cost-to-feature ratio for automated TV workflows.
Designed for broadcasters, cable television operations and streaming media providers, MOM delivers a comprehensive platform for organizing and managing a wide array of broadcast production and integrated channel playout tasks. MOM integrates ingest, media asset management, graphics, branding, on-the-fly multi-format transcoding, and 24/7 multi-channel playout automation within its single, unified platform.
New for the 2017 NAB Show is an integrated graphics generator for live channel branding, support for network device interface (NDI) connectivity, and the ability to produce a live show with live camera and NDI inputs. This extends MOM beyond standard automation-related tasks and deeper into the TV production infrastructure.
Support for NDI-connected devices is especially valuable given the ability to easily share bidirectional SD, HD and 4K/UHD video over a single, ubiquitous, standard Gigabit network — amplifying MOM’s value in IP production.
MOM and Virtualization
ENCO will have a presentation area in its NAB booth where company representatives will also demonstrate the value of virtualized automation. The demonstrations will include multiple automation systems running off a single ENCO1 virtualized server. ENCO1 allows ENCO software solutions to run efficiently via IP-based virtualization to reduce costs and operational overhead, as well as minimize rack space.
With MOM’s intuitive, graphical on-air user interface, a single operator can handle all of the media production and playout tasks required by the end-to-end broadcast workflow. Tasks like scheduling, logging changes, manual playback and live insertion control can be executed with simple drag-and-drop functionality.
