RadioMan® allows multi-channel broadcast planning with local sub-channels and various studios. You can produce programs and program series independent of linear broadcast channels for social media platforms and on-demand. Web publishing, archiving, and other tasks can be specified already at the template level.
RadioMan Planner is used for managing program schedules. RadioMan is, by nature, a multi-channel system so that you can manage the schedules for multiple channels, studios, groups and recorders from the same view. In addition,
RadioMan differentiates between Timeslots and Programs.
The 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 program 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 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 program schedules for people in various roles. The available views are a monthly managerial overview, a producer-type weekly view, and a more detailed daily view that can even be displayed with the program contents for actual program production.
Program timeslots on a certain channel can also be 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 to studios and autoplayers as they can be allocated to any channel or program.
