ENCO Systems has announced several improvements and updates to its WebDAD and enCaption products.
WebDAD is an HTML-5 browser-based native remote control companion to the DAD automation and playout system. “Across both the DAD and WebDAD products, passwords with special characters are now supported, which will help many use a more secure password to better conform with their station’s data security policies,” Media Solutions Account Manager Bill Bennett said.
“Along those lines, we’ve added button and deck security within WebDAD so the log-in follows button security for normal DAD users.”
For those who like to edit arrays and libraries and manipulate assets within the WebDAD interface, they can now download library cuts via the HTML client directly to their remote computer. And WebDAD’s user interface has also been updated.
enCaption is an automated captioning and transcription platform used by television and radio broadcasters to make their programming more accessible. Bennett said the system now inserts a chevron into captions to indicate when someone new is speaking.
“We’ve also integrated a powerful new punctuation detection feature that inserts commas, exclamation points, periods and question marks automatically, based on voice characteristics.”
To change input and output signal mapping across various types of sources, or to change between sources across live and file-based content, the user can now save each configuration mapping as a unique profile and call it back up, manually or by API call. enCaption also now has improved word filters and an updated optional CEA-608/708 Embedding capability.
