From our “Application Notes” page:

Baker Broadcasting is using ENCO WebDAD to solve remote broadcasting problems in the pandemic era.

Baker, based in Fort Smith, Ark., was an early adopter of the DAD automation product family. Now ENCO says in a press release that Baker’s adoption of WebDAD “has allowed flagship station KISR(FM) and KREU(FM) — the only Spanish-language station in Northwest Arkansas — to continue on-air operations without interruption or limits.”

The site usually has about 20 employees but ENCO said Chief Engineer Ayrton McPhail was one of a few team members allowed onsite for two months.

The manufacturer quoted McPhail saying staff can remotely connect to their workstations and coordinate automation from home. “The ability to directly upload audio files into rotation also simplifies our programming,” he said.

He also noted the system’s access to libraries; direct uploads of audio files instead of third-party applications; the ability to remotely voice track; and the option to record audio in-app.
