What’s new for 2.16.3¶
- Unicodisation of the Media Database. Now you can use any language for the main descriptive fields of elements, as well as for the names of categories and user attributes.
- Some modifications that help to normalise the sound volume of commercials and to provide broadcasting in accordance with the Federal Law №338:
- Calculation of the volume of a phonogram (LUFS) in real time.
- Storage and display of the sound volume of a file (I-loudness) in the Media Database and in the schedule.
- Display the value of the sound volume and edit the volume in the labelling window.
- Display the bars indicating the level and the volume of a phonogram in different modules of the system.
- Vertical scaling of recordings.
- Support of the remote control for EELA AUDIO D4 console.
- A built-in dynamic multi-program audio processor that supports automatic switching of presets depending on the type of material going on the air. The audio processor works with the X-player and Regional Frame Player (777).
- MAG: Use of packages. A package is a set of manually selected phonograms which rotates like a normal track, moving in its category according to its programmed order. At each rotation, the top element of the package goes to the schedule, at the same time going to the end of the list of phonograms inside the package. Thus, the contents of the package is rotated as in the category.
Packages allow you to avoid problems with balancing your music library by artist or other criteria by combining "similar" tracks.
- Media Planner: diversification of discounts, improvements in tariff scales.
