Automation Control Interface Offers the ability to trigger automation changes or control a router with delayed contact closures
Manual Manual control is offered to the user through the COUGH or DUMP functions; when the operator hears an offensive word the DUMP button can be pressed and held for a length similar to the delay time. The audio after the delay will be the first to hit the airwaves. The COUGH button allows the talent to cough, sneeze or take a beverage drink.
