RDS-Studio: create dynamic RDS content
The RDS-Studio-software allows you to supply dynamic input for your RDS-encoder. It is possible to set this dynamic information seperately for every hour of the week. The com-port is used to make a connection between the software and your RDS-encoder. When a connection between RDS-Studio and your RDS encoder is established it is possible to manage your complete RDS-encoder with the RDS-Studio software. This gives you almost unlimited possibilities to configure your RDS-encoder.
The 'weekplanner' is the core of the application. The planner controls what text and parameters are going to be set invididually for every hour of the week. You can choose to set these parameters for every hour separately, (part of the) day, or you can schedule a 'horizontal' planning. The next parameters can be set individually for every hour of the week**
PS Blocks are multiple lines of 8 characters each. These blocks are completely customizable - any number sub-blocks can be rotated. For each block you can program the time to display the block on the RDS. The blocks can be selected in the weekplanner.
Now on air
With the 'Now on air' feature you can display the artist and song title that is currently being aired in the 'PS' and 'RT' block. This function is compatible with any radio-automation application that creates a log-file with on-air information Systems that our current users use for NowOnAir are: RadioHost, PCRadio, Mouse Music, OTSDJ, AirWave-Nonstop, IMediaTouch.
When using the NowOnAir option very often words will be longer than 8 characters. These words will be placed in a 'BreakWord list' automatic and you have the option to connect multiple 8 character words to a breakword.
Starting version 1.5, it's posible to display RSS-Feeds on RDS using RDS-Studio.
PS blocks will be aligned automatically.
The 'Remote Connector' is an extra application which can make an connection through intranet or internet (TCP/IP) with RDS Studio ***. This makes it possible to send a TA-signal from the studio to another location where the RDS-Studio computer is located. It is also possible to send temporary PS-texts from another location to the RDS-Studio computer without affecting your week-schedule. For security reasons, the 'Remote Connector' cannot alter the week-planner or the PS-blocks.
Static paramters that can be set manually:
The supported protocols are UECP (SPB490), AEV/SIEL(ascii), RDS2000, Cepar and PIRA, so all common RDS-encoders can be used with RDS studio.
