It doesn’t matter how organised you are in life, things don’t always go to plan. And with radio broadcasting there’s nowhere to hide – if it goes wrong, everyone knows about it. Dead air is the most feared disasters facing any radio station. Listeners will switch stations in a matter of seconds if you go quiet, and there is no guarantee they’ll come back. That’s why we have introduced a brand-new product that takes care of that – the Plan B Encore.
The Plan B Encore is much more than a simple silence detector – it’s a silence eliminator – which is to say it will detect silence and replace it with a variety of backup sources that you choose, and what’s more it’ll tell you there’s something wrong! Everyone needs a Plan B!
What sets Plan B Encore above other Silence Monitor and Back-up Audio Players is the vast number of alternative audio sources you can switch to:
- Internal flash memory
- External USB
- IP Stream
- From audio inputs in the back panel
- You can even switch to external equipment via the GPIO contacts
This means, should the worst happen, you will have complete control over what happens next. Your broadcast will continue seamlessly without anyone knowing there’s a problem. You, on the other hand, are kept completely informed with the aid of email alerts and SNMP.
It is also an amazingly accessible piece of equipment. You can set up and monitor the Plan B Encore using the HTML5 remote, Telenet or HTTP API. Whatever your situation you’ll be able to instantly access your equipment, giving you ultimate control over your broadcast.
The Encore Range of products are incredibly stylish, they have dual OLED screens and a rotary lighting ring, making them intuitive and fun to use. The menu structures are clean and simple, making navigation easy. All the info you need is at your fingertips, you won't need to go hunting around to find that illusive feature you want to use.
