LogEditor is the OmniPlayer application for scheduling. With LogEditor radio programming software, it is possible to create and edit playlists for different radio stations or channels, several days, weeks or even months in advance.
Radio schedules comprise a number of components:
- A Log is a running order or run-down containing the schedule that a radio station airs over a period of 24 hours.
- A Log contains a number of Clocks.
- A Clock is the largest subdivision within the Log. Clocks let you structure programming by units of time. Typically a Clock is an hour in length, but could be any length you decide. Clocks usually include a start and end time, a name, length and contains several Blocks or Events.
- A Block is a subdivision within a Clock. Blocks permit those who create the Clock to group Events by a common theme or purpose, such as commercial spots, public announcements, or promos.
- An Event is the smallest subdivision within a Log. It can be any audio, text, or macro item.
Save time with schedule templates
Another important concept is templates: a template is a skeleton copy or model of a Log or Break that can be used repeatedly to quickly generate a new Log or Break. The system saves the structure and the content; then, when you retrieve the template, you can update or adapt it to a specific date.
From the LogEditor window, you select the radio station for which you want to schedule, and then create a Log in which you indicate all sub-divisions of Clocks and Breaks, with the desired names, length and start times. Adding titles to the Logs to any of its subdivisions is a simple drag and drop action from the Database explorer to the LogEditor window. Once you build any part of the Log, the On Air Applications, MultiPlayer or SinglePlayer can retrieve, load, and play the program.
