ENCO Systems announced the release of Phonetica2, a phonetic-based search system for digital audio targeted to the broadcast industry.
It is available as a module in ENCO’s DAD Digital Audio Delivery system. The module allows users to search through a library of audio files containing spoken material and find specific words or phrases by typing them.
President Gene Novacek said the system allows broadcasters to search libraries of news actualities, programs or other spoken material to locate material that would otherwise take hours or days to find. The system is suitable for news, talk and sports radio formats or any broadcaster who archives large amounts of audio, he said.
The user types the words into a search field; a list of audio cuts where the words appear is displayed. The user can press play to hear the audio, or click edit to work on the file.
In Charlotte, the company also will show the latest version of its DAD digital audio automation and playout system. The company says it has made significant enhancements to its fourth-generation live playback user interface, AirPlay.
Additionally, the company is displaying NewsBoss, a newsroom management system; and demonstrating PADapult, its PAD/PSD solution for HD Radio, RBDS and Web streaming data.
