What sets Plan B Encore above other Silence Monitor and Back-up Audio Players is the vast number of alternative audio sources you can switch to:

  • Internal flash memory
  • External USB
  • IP Stream
  • From audio inputs in the back panel
  • You can even switch to external equipment via the GPIO contacts


This means, should the worst happen, you will have complete control over what happens next. Your broadcast will continue seamlessly without anyone knowing there’s a problem. You, on the other hand, are kept completely informed with the aid of email alerts and SNMP.

It is also an amazingly accessible piece of equipment. You can set up and monitor the Plan B Encore using the HTML5 remote, Telenet or HTTP API. Whatever your situation you’ll be able to instantly access your equipment, giving you ultimate control over your broadcast.

The Encore Range of products are incredibly stylish, they have dual OLED screens and a rotary lighting ring, making them intuitive and fun to use. The menu structures are clean and simple, making navigation easy. All the info you need is at your fingertips, you won't need to go hunting around to find that illusive feature you want to use.

As you have come to expect from BW Broadcast, these products are designed for unsurpassed reliability and trouble-free operation in the world’s most challenging installations. Backed up by our outstanding 24/7 Technical Support, with an international 10-year warranty and free software upgrades for life you can have the peace of mind that you are buying a piece of quality broadcasting equipment that will stand the test of time.
