Asset Management

  • Mirroring Function

  • File Check & Management Function

  • File Transfer Function

  • File Scheduling Function

The Asset Management Module is the heart and brain of the Distribution Software architecture. It manages the Data Repositories (File Servers) and oversees:

SM

Asset

BM

Asset Management

  • Output:

  • Generates status of file to SDM (XML in queue)

  • Generates status of file to S&RM Database (based on the Processes accomplished)

  • Generates Generic Schedule for BM in XML

  • Push files to BM (if needed)

  • Backup on CD/DVD

  • Input:

  • XML file from SDM every time a file is sent

  • SQL access to the Schedule Database

  • SQL access to user Database

  • Process:

  • FTP Servers

    • Accounts based on User Database

    • Mirroring between Servers & Archives

  • Audio File Check, Repair, Flag

    • Length, Encoding, Name, Tag, Checksum (ID3 <-> XML reconciliation)

  • File Push to BM (if needed)

    • Copy, then Rename & transcode files as appropriate for BM (unless BM is equipped to do this task)

    • Keep Backup (on CD/DVD)

BM

Studio Module

This module is used at the studio locations

  • Input:

  • Audio files (in WAV, MPx)

  • Description of file

  • XML from Asset of status of previously sent files

  • Output:

  • FTP processed file to AWR Server

  • XML info on file sent

  • Archival CD/DVDs

  • Process:

  • ID3 Tagging

  • Rename (based on playout date or sequential numbering, or both)

  • Transcode for FM or SW format (if both required, only FM format is processed)

  • Burn CD/DVD for local archival (or non-internet Xfer)

    • Generates Labels as appropriate

  • Updates of schedule in RTF format from Frequency Management

  • Updates of schedule via Web interface

  • Output:

  • Web: PR Page (schedule.awr.org)

  • PDF schedule auto-generation

  • Updated schedule database

  • Process:

  • Read/Write access to the Schedule Database

  • Backup of Schedule Database

This module was 95% complete as of Autumn ‘05

BM

Broadcast Module

This module is used at the Region Offices (and AWR owned TX sites)

  • Input:

  • Generic XML Schedule file from Asset

  • Audio Files received from Asset

  • Playout acknowledgement

  • Output:

  • Generates status of file to S&RM Database (based on the Processes accomplished)

  • site specific Schedule file (by day/week, depending on requirements) by transmitter (or automation system)

  • CD/DVD archives

  • Process:

  • File Download (pull) (if not FTP Pushed)

  • Filename structure verification (may vary from AWR’s Standard due to Playout site’s preference)

  • Audio file verification

    • Length, Encoding, ID3, checksum

  • Generation of site specific Schedule File

  • Automation System (i.e. eXaudi like)

  • Process playout acknowledgement
