Center Stage Live (CSL) is a software suite designed to capture, create, schedule and distribute text and images to a wide variety of devices and services. These include RDS\RBDS encoders, DTS Hybrid Receivers TM , HD Radio TM and The Artist Experience TM , DAB/DRM, Web Sites, Streaming Services, Web Services such as QUU and TuneIn or other devices and services as required.
CSL monitors automation systems, satellite and/or web services as well as CSL applications to capture now playing information. The information is filtered eliminating unwanted content then formatted as required for the selected devices and services.
In addition to Now Playing information, the advanced content scheduler has the tools to schedule any number of informational, promotional or commercial messages and images. Scheduling is by station, date, time of day and day of week as a, “Run of Schedule” event rotating with other scheduled content. Campaigns can be linked to an on-air event by the Cart/Cut ID, information in the Artist or Title fields or for an entire category. Once linked the companion message will be posted when that event goes to air. The scheduler can also be used to set a message to display at a fixed date, time and Duration for special event programming pre-empting regular programming. Campaigns can also be marked for verification and when posted the event is logged and available via user definable reporting options for affidavits.
CSL will also monitor weather services (NOAA in the US, Environment Canada in Canada) to automatically insert our local weather forecast, pull now playing information from selected providers and systems such as WordPress and Burli Newsroom and linked to the Sage or Gorman-Redlich EAS unit to post Emergency Alerts.
For NPR stations using Content Depots MetaPub service or Composer, CSL will capture and post the now playing data and images based on the stations scheduled programming.
In partnership with our DTS Connected Radio sister company, we post your metadata to the new DTS Hybrid Receivers so your station’s now playing information, station logo and artist images will automatically display on the new receivers. If subscribed to QUU, CSL will capture QUU images for your HD System and QUU Campaigns. Campaigns can be scheduled in QUU in CSL or both.
Center Stage Live is available for a free 30-day trial. Contact your regular supplier or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
