Trouble shooting artwork and to a lesser
extent HD PAD data can be difficult, where to start, what to look for,
etc. A good place to start it to verify CSRDS is actually sending data
to iBiquity's JMSAC module that actually handles the feeds to the HD
systems. To avoid other possible issues, we have developed the CSRDS\JMSAC
verification tool that will show exactly what is received from CSRDS.
This process uses the Direct File Copy method to send images that will
show in the tool.
The Verification Tool has four image
displays to watch the progression of artwork through the system. These
are based on the commands received from CSRDS.
Direct File Copy command will show the
artwork in the Received area.
Sync Pre-Send will move the artwork to
the Next area
PSD Send will move the Next Area image to
the On-Air area based on the LotID
ASYNC Send will show the statiion logo in
the receive area and transfer it to the Logo Area
As each command is received the XML code
will appear in the command display areas.

To start the test, select the DTS/JMSAC
command from the Tools Menu in CSRDS. To End the test Exit the Tool or
select Stop CSRDS/JMSC from the tools menu. During the test CSRDS will
display a large red message noting the metadata is NOT going to the live
system. When the test is ended the feeds automatically go back to the
