DAC Cartwall

DAC Cartwall is an easy-to-use jingle player that offers multiple pages of instant audio buttons ready for quick playback or loading into a dedicated player. It can read APE/ID3, JMD and CartChunk tags allowing for easy integration with an existing automation system.

Although DAC works best when used on a touchscreen, navigation can be accomplished via mouse as well as F1/F2/F3 to start/stop the playback decks.  Remote-start via joystick is also possible.

DAC offers lightning-fast navigation of jingle pages and instant audio playback: 56 buttons per page, 10 pages per “Set” and an unlimited number of Sets allow for near-instant audio load+playback of 1000s of jingles/clips.  Items can be loaded into 1 of 3 “Decks” or your can enable the “Instant” mode to touch ‘n’ play instantly.

It’s 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.
