Structured scheduling of complete rundowns.
The d’accord.daily schedule forms the central element of the d’accord.radiosuite. This is where the structured planning of entire broadcast rundowns takes place – for more than one stream if necessary.
The daily schedule of a stream is imaged by d’accord as an open working platform to which all editors involved can add and edit content, both text and audio.
The d’accord.daily schedule, with its multi-stream capability, simplifies and accelerates rundown planning. It allows multiple users to work on rundown schedules simultaneously. The use of templates for programme elements further simplifies complex scheduling processes and can also be used during pre-production of broadcasts.
Simply intuitive. Even when things get complex.
The interface of the d’accord.daily schedule is based on learned interface interactions, standards and clarity.
Familiar functions such as copy and paste, cut and paste, and a tree diagram of complex structures are a matter of course.
Drag & drop integration
All d’accord products are closely integrated. Accordingly, scheduled elements can be added by drag and drop from the d’accord.libraries or d’accord.rotation.
Audio and text editing
Texts can be created and edited for each scheduled element. With the d’accord.cut assist, a high-quality audio editor is also available for editing and recording audio and for text entry.
The allocation of planned times for each element allows more accurate backtiming. You, thus, have the overall planned length in sight at all times and can check your scheduling.
Free views on the schedule
All the features of a scheduled element such as information and presentation texts, use history, etc. are displayed in a separate window. The overall schedule thus remains in view at all times.
Focused on stability.
The d’accord.daily schedule is equally suitable for small and large broadcasting organisations. Its systematic client-server architecture allows users to work on the schedules in parallel. Short transfers to d’accord.onair assist make changes possible even while the broadcast is on air. Thus, a fault-free and efficient rundown is guaranteed.
Transfer to studio
Each broadcasting studio has its own dedicated d’accord.onair assist. All plans created in the d’accord.daily schedule, including the audio and text they contain, are transferred to this and played out from it; pre-produced texts can also be read out.
Changes to schedules
Changes made to a rundown schedule already sent to the d’accord.onair assist are sent to it instantly with a single click. This means that schedules can be updated at the last minute even while the broadcast is in progress.
For each stream, the number of elements to be sent to the d’accord.onair assist in the first instance can be specified. Then the first elements are available very quickly for playout.
The open architecture of the d’accord.daily schedules allows seamless integration of current broadcasting solutions from third-party providers such as audio editors (e.g. Lawo or D.A.V.I.D.) and rotation software (e.g. Powergold, Selektor or Musicmaster) or advertisement disposition software.
On the safe side.
When a system is used by many hundreds of users every day, a problem-free rundown is an absolute must. Accordingly, operating errors in d’accord.daily schedule are prevented by an optimised roles and rights system and standardisation. Defined standard routines also keep potential errors to a minimum.
Each studio is operated by a dedicated OnAir server. All plans created in the daily schedule, including the audio they contain, are transferred to this and played out from it.
Changes to a schedule already sent to the OnAir server are sent to the server immediately with a single click. This means that schedules can be easily edited even while the broadcast is in progress.
For each stream, the number of elements to be sent to the OnAir server in the first instance can be specified. Then the first elements are available very quickly for playout.
Automation that really helps.
Radio is a complex pursuit. With d’accord.daily schedule, you can concentrate on what is important – the programme. This is because d’accord.daily schedule performs many of the tasks in the background without you having to do anything.
For each d’accord.onair assist, a target level can be individually set. The audio level is matched automatically to the specified value on playout.
Empty broadcasting slots, missing audio material or overlaps are detected by plausibility checks and the user informed.
To optimise music rotation and also to facilitate the settlement of performing rights and fee charges, all elements played back over the d’accord.onair assist or d’accord.cart assist are logged.
Scheduled elements can be given different start modes for fully or semi-automated broadcasting operation. Transfers can be defined easily in the audio editor using drag and drop.
