Founded in 1983, ENCO pioneered the use of computer-based, digital audio and program automation for radio station and TV studios. The company has since evolved its product line to cross all aspects of today’s automated broadcast and production workflows, including closed-captioning, visual radio, audio compliance, instant media playout, remote contribution, and cloud-based web streaming.
The new Clipboard provides an intuitive, physical control surface for ENCO’s comprehensive range of television and radio solutions, including the MOM (Media Operations Manager) TV automation and production platform, ClipFire instant video playout appliance, DAD radio automation and playout solution, and HotShot instant audio playback system. ClipBoard’s unique operational benefits particularly shine when used with ENCO’s video solutions, as the controller’s OLED-based buttons display 96×64 pixel graphics.
ClipBoard’s button layout mirrors and complements ENCO’s highly-regarded, touchscreen-optimized software interfaces. ClipBoard buttons can trigger any asset available in the automation or playout system, including video, audio, graphics and DCL (DAD Command Language) commands. Thumbnails of available audio or video are shown on the buttons for easy identification, while countdown timers display in-progress elements.
ClipBoard units feature 56 buttons, each measuring one inch wide by 7/8 of an inch high. 48 of these buttons can be used to trigger media assets on the current array page, while the remaining eight provide additional functionality such as switching between banks of buttons. ClipBoard features RJ45 Ethernet connectivity and controls ENCO automation and playout solutions over an IP network, enabling it for use with both physical and virtualized systems.
