ENCO recently launched an IP-enabled control surface for television and radio systems, including a distinctive in-button video playback feature.
As Mark Stewart explains in the video above, ENCO unveiled the ClipBoard interface for its automation and instant playout solutions at this month’s NAB Show.
ClipBoard provides a physical control surface for ENCO offerings like MOM (Media Operations Manager) TV automation and production platform, ClipFire 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,” the company stated.
Its button layout mirrors and complements ENCO’s touchscreen-optimized software interfaces. The buttons can trigger any asset 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; countdown timers display in-progress elements.
ClipBoard features RJ-45 Ethernet connectivity and controls ENCO automation and playout solutions over an IP network, enabling it for use with physical and virtualized systems.
