The dira! Cartplayer is an easy to learn, intuitive to use and powerful command centre for any flexible radio broadcasting format. At its heart is the operator’s touch-screen presenting a total of up to 49 audio items at a time, ready for single-touch playout.
Just a few touches further away are additional screen pages, selectable banks and private and public “sets”.
Instant, Standard, Stack
In the instant mode each matrix button becomes a “play this now” command, directly putting the associated item on air. In standard mode all channels can be combined freely, and it is possible to play audio on all four channels simultaneously. In stack mode each of the four faders is assigned a playout stack on which multiple items can be placed to form a simple rundown list.
