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)
