ENCO, Yellowtec Unveil Partnership

News Image
ENCO has announced a new partnership with Yellowtec, that will accelerate time to air for news content gathered in the field.

The two companies will unveil a remote newsgathering solution featuring ENCO's iDAD mobile application and Yellowtec iXM recording microphones at IBC2015. It will give reporters a high-quality, handheld system to record, process and transfer audio files back to the studio.

The collaborative workflow reduces equipment costs, eliminating the need to use expensive field recorders to gather interviews in the field. Additionally, reporters no longer need to use codecs to transport files back to the studio; or drive back to the station to deliver files for editing. Instead, reporters and sources speak into the iXM microphone, which incorporates auto leveling to ensure clear recordings.

ENCO's iDAD app can connect wirelessly to the iXM's internal WiFi storage device, allowing it to directly access iXM recordings for editing and director transfer to a radio station's DAD audio library. iDAD can also remotely control the ENCO DAD automation system at the studio. Users can download the latest iDAD mobile app for free in the Apple iOS App Store.

"The main purpose of this combined solution is to make life easier on the field journalist," said Andy Mikkuta, sales director, Yellowtec. "The simplicity of the solution removes the technical burden of newsgathering from the equation. Reporters can have complete files back to the radio station within 10 minutes of an interview."

The iXM incorporates two large buttons – record and stop – and three light-up status icons, essentially canceling any learning curve for the reporter.

"Radio stations and networks can now achieve both exceptional broadcast audio quality and the efficiencies of mobile connectivity in the same workflow – all while allowing journalists to fully concentrate on their main tasks of gathering and reporting the news," said Ken Frommert, general manager, ENCO.

ENCO and Yellowtec will both demonstrate the combined solution at their respective IBC stands, 8.A45 and 8.A51.
