CSRDS has been modified to
support artwork, Run of Schedule and Companion campaigns from QUU. To
activate your QUU subscription in CSRDS, enter your credentials (See How
To). Once entered CSRDS will use your now playing information to capture
album art or artist images from QUU. As the artwork is captured CSRDS
will also capture and schedule QUU campaigns into the data casting
process. If desired, stations can schedule their message and images in
QUU, using CSScheduler or both.
Since CSRDS captures artwork
from multiple sources. depending on the configuration the priority is as
1. Station Assigned artwork
from CSScheduler Image Scheduling to override QUU or DTS assigned
2. Artwork assigned to
Informational, promotional or commercial messages in CSScheduler or QUU
3. If not assigned artwork,
as a paid service the artwork captured from QUU will be used
4. As a Free Service - if
artwork is not available from QUU the artwork from DTS Connected Radio
5. If artwork is not returned
from wither QUU or DTS Connected Radio and past artwork is available for
this event, that artwork will be used
6. If no artwork is available
from any source and a day parted logo has been scheduled in CSScheduler
the active logo will be used.
7. If no artwork or scheduled
logos the default station logo will be used.
Run of Schedule campaigns
scheduled in CSScheduler or QUU will normally be rotated into the
displays when songs are not playing. CSRDS has an option to rotate these
events with songs but this can cause problems for the stations web site,
streaming and sound exchange reporting. It is also considered a
distraction to drivers, especially if trying to rotate client logos with
artwork into the display. This is NOT RECOMMENDED.
QUU companion messages are
linked to a specific event based in the Cart/Cut ID, CSscheduler
companion messages may be linked in Event ID, information in the artist
or title field or based on a category. Either way a companion message
will be linked to the on-are event and triggered when that event airs.
