Featured Updates in this Release
Center Stage Live
Data Casting with Center Stage Live
Center Stage Live now closes the loop and
will verify over the air broadcast for RDS\RBDS. The process utilizes
the Inovonics 633 FM Decoder (Inovonics
633)This is actually an FM receiver with a USB/Serial cable
returning the metadata to the computer running our CSRDS module.
As selected messages are posted to the
RDS/RBDS the program will monitor the USB/Serial connection capturing
the metadata that was received from the over the air broadcast. This
information is compared to what was sent and the message is logged into
a metadata “as run” log with a flag marking the event as verified or
A special Metadata Verified report is
available in the CSScheduler Metadata Reports function to view, print,
or export the information for use in affidavits.
The Artist Experience
Version 9 includes several enhancements
for processing and scheduling artwork for use on HD Displays. In
addition to internal processes we have worked with several of our
Automation System partners to provide the metadata as required for the
Arctic Palm, Tag Station and iBiquity
have worked together to introduce the Artist Experience and Album Art to
create the best possible "listener" experience. During this process,
Center Stage Live has been modified to capture Tag Station Campaign
events, scheduled events and merge them with Center Stage Live events
for posting to RDS\RBDS, HD Radio, Web Sites, Streams, Tunein.com, etc.
Support for an HTTP link to Tag Station
has been added to this release. Should Tag Station modify it's protocol
simply select the HTTP option in the Other Tab of CSRDS and you will be
re-connected with Tag Station.

CSScheduler has been modified to produce
Data Casting Verification reports based on the information received from
the Inovonics 633 FM RDS Decoder and 632 HD Decoder. As described in the
Event Verification process this report will show all of the scheduled
entries marked for verification with a corresponding indicator noting
the message was broadcast, received by the FM/HD decoder and returned to
CSRDS as sent.
This report can be viewed, printed or
exported for verification to advertisers for commercial messages posted
to the Data Casting services.
The dollar sign is a special character in
RDS displays and instead of the $ sign you may see the international
symbol for money. For artist such as Ke$ha, songs like If I had a
$1,000,000 Dollars and more on-air advertisers posting RDS messages with
prices this can be an issue. As such, we have added 3 options in CSRDS.
Stations can select to keep the $ display as is, so no change, use the
RDS recommended code for the Dollar Sign (Hex 0xAB) or replace the
dollar sign with a capital S.
CS Contest Management
We have added event logging to the CS
Contest Maintenance Modules recording the date, time, the event
processed, the computer and user that posted the event along with the
winner and contest information processed. Should it be necessary to
follow-up on an entry, a searchable Activity Log Report was added to the
CS Contest Maintenance module providing access to what was done, on what
computer at what time.
