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.
Have as many cart pages/sets as you need – Station IDs, Liners, Promos, Jock Drops and even Sound Effects/News Clips. DAC is in use at around 1000 locations – including college/university stations, community radio, theatres, stadiums and playing everything from news inserts, quiz/sport/theatre sound-effects to jingles on a major-market breakfast show!
