DAC Cartwall

DAC Cartwall is an easy-to-use jingle player that offers multiple pages of instant audio buttons (56 per page) ready for quick playback or loading into a dedicated player. It can read APE/ID3, mAirList and CartChunk tag data – allowing easy integration with an existing automation system. F1/F2/F3 can also be used to Start/Stop the 3 playback decks.

DAC offers lightning-fast navigation of jingle pages and instant audio playback – Items can be loaded into 1 of 3 “Decks” or enable the “Instant” mode to touch ‘n’ play instantly. DAC is touch-screen friendly and can work at a variety of screen resolutions.

It’s also a great way to allow your presenters flexibility in playing their own audio/tracks (perhaps from a USB stick) without “upsetting” your existing playout system.
