ENCO said that at the NAB Show it will highlight new features and benefits of its fifth-generation enCaption automated live captioning and transcription solution, including an updated enTranslate engine.

The company also has updated its WebDAD 3.0 remote radio automation interface; it will highlight its recent acquisition of the Rushworks line; and it promised another product announcement yet to come.

The enCaption5 product was previewed last year; it offers live or file-based captioning and transcription that can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud or in hybrid on-prem/cloud workflow. ENCO says radio as well as TV broadcasters use it.

“New for NAB, enCaption includes major accuracy improvements of up to 20 percent and additional improvements to speaker detection for more seamless captioning of program material with multiple speakers,” it said. “Improved data formatting for phone numbers, measurements, websites and email addresses will drive better caption readability. ENCO has added user interface enhancements such as Calendar View for scheduling captioning events in addition to the current List View.”

The ENCO enTranslate solution also will be introduced as an enCaption module at NAB.

The company also has made its WebDAD 3.0 sleeker.

“ENCO has made control of the automation system the focus. The latest version of WebDAD now offers bidirectional control of playback machines, mini arrays and full array panels. New improved progression tracking allows users to monitor playout of on-air content, plus the ability to trigger ClipFire video clips has been built in. ENCO has also added a robust new library editor and FastTRAK one-button voice tracking for simplifying remote talent tasks.”

And ENCO will debut the Rushworks product line that it acquired in January. Products include the A-LIST broadcast automation solution, VDESK integrated PTZ/PTX production system and PTX Model 3 PRO pan/tilt head.

The company will be in Booth W1743.
