RadioMan allows multi-channel broadcast planning with local sub channels and various studios. Programmes and programme series can also be produced independent of linear broadcast channels for social media platforms and on-demand. Web publishing, archiving and other tasks can be specified already at template level.
RadioMan Planner is used for managing programme schedules. RadioMan® is by nature a multichannel system so that you can manage the schedules for multiple channels, studios, groups and recorders from the same view. RadioMan® differentiates between Timeslots and Programmes.
Timeslot is a place in a calendar (date, time, duration, channel, and studio) for a programme while the content of a particular programme can be made at different times by different users.
A programme can contain a playlist that can be created and edited in the planning phase. The playlist can also get material from other systems like music selection, newsroom application or traffic interface.
Planning can be done either for calendar-based dates or for Templates that form prototypes of days or weeks. When Templates are applied to the calendar the content of the templates is copied to the exact dates. Day Planning allows different views for programme schedules for people in different roles. The views available are managerial monthly overview, a producer-type weekly view and more detailed daily view that can even be displayed with the programme contents for actual programme production. Programme timeslots that are on a certain channel can be also loaned to other channels. This is useful on multi-site regional systems where regional channels follow part time the national programme and part time local. The same applies for studios and autoplayers as they can be allocated to any channel or programme.
