(click thumbnail)ENCO Systems will show Version 8.1d of DAD (PDF file) at the NAB Radio Show. This latest version incorporates several new features, such as LiveList, which enables multiple editing and voice-tracking on an individual playlist or log. LiveList also allows monitoring of a number of playback machines from a single studio.
Several enhancements to the DAD command language have been added, as well as support for a number of newer professional sound cards and IP audio devices. The ability to stream as many as 16 audio outputs at the same time from a single workstation makes DAD an asset for multiple HD Radio program channels and Web radio with ad substitution, the company said.
ENCO also will exhibit RAMA (PDF) for the first time in its release form.
RAMA is the Remote Administered Metadata Appliance and is a turnkey solution to managing and manipulating metadata for multiple destinations like RDS, HD Radio and Web sites. RAMA supports now-playing data, scheduled messagecasting and iTunes tagging for HD Radio, plus store and forward metadata with selected radio network program feeds.
Both DAD Version 8.1d and RAMA are shipping.
