At the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas, ENCO plans to launch a new audio insertion manager to automate text-to-speech conversion. The 1RU system is designed to deliver emergency alert audio to visually impaired audiences, as well as automated audio content on primary video channels.

The new AIM-100 audio insertion manager is designed to address 21st CVAA compliance regulations, which require TV stations to provide audio descriptions of emergency information on their SAP channels. The AIM-100 monitors incoming XML or TXT files from news tickers and other master control systems, and prioritizes and converts that information to audio. All information is logged and time-stamped to prove compliance.

Broadcasters can assign specific parameters for prioritization and program interruption, including the insertion of audio tones and alert loops. Users can also create a custom dictionary of pronunciations, from adding regional dialects to building a list of specialized jargon.
