ENCO Accelerates Live Audio Clip Delivery for Broadcast and Production at IBC2018

HotShot3 amplifies speed and reliability of clip playout for sports, live events and more, while new automated features tighten interoperability with important workflow tasks.

ENCO, a specialist in automated workflow and instant playout solutions for radio, television and commercial AV systems, is bringing renewed emphasis to its live audio playout range at IBC2018 with its latest version of HotShot, the audio playback appliance that first launched ENCO’s range of instant media playout solutions.

HotShot3, introduced at IBC2017, returns this year with new features that tighten interoperability with other pertinent workflow systems. Retaining its sleek and intuitive interface along with unparalleled speed and reliability, HotShot3 now offers customizable, automated features across logging, compliance, rights management and royalty reporting.

“HotShot3 simplifies how broadcasters and production teams manage both the entertainment and legal requirements of their operations in one easy to use package,” said Ken Frommert, President, ENCO. “Interoperability with royalty reporting is perhaps of most interest, ensuring that artists are paid for their intellectual property and creative endeavors. Collectively, we are ensuring that our customers are protected by seamlessly feeding important data to logging and compliance systems that they can leverage upon request.”

Along with these new workflow interoperability benefits, HotShot3’s inherent flexibility gives customers creative freedom to inject excitement into a variety of events across sports, performances and live TV broadcasts, for example. To optimize efficiency, HotShot3 provides instant access to local and network audio assets, with a user-friendly design ideal for control rooms, audio suites and mobile production trucks. Stereo and surround sound capability ensures that HotShot3 can be utilized for any broadcast and live event audio requirements.

HotShot3 provides several playback options, including on a pre-labeled 80-button keypad or touchscreen operation – as well as remote operation using an iPad – to support all broadcast and production applications. The layout adopts ENCO’s on-screen “button box” layout to accelerate learning curves and allow users to navigate up to hundreds of active icons with ease, each displaying a visual thumbnail with clip information.

In addition to HotShot3, ENCO will demonstrate ClipFire, its companion instant playout system for video; as well as MOM and DAD, ENCO’s flagship automated production and playout systems for television and radio, respectively. ENCO will demonstrate all of these systems at Stand 8.A59 during IBC2018, which takes place September 14-18 at the RAI Amsterdam.
