Asset Management
The Asset Management Module is the heart and
brain of the Distribution Software architecture.
It manages the Data Repositories (File Servers)
and oversees
  • Mirroring Function
  • File Check Management Function
  • File Transfer Function
  • File Scheduling Function

12
Asset Management
  • Output
  • Generates status of file to SDM (XML in queue)
  • Generates status of file to SRM Database (based
    on the Processes accomplished)
  • Generates Generic Schedule for BM in XML
  • Push files to BM (if needed)
  • Backup on CD/DVD
  • Input
  • XML file from SDM every time a file is sent
  • SQL access to the Schedule Database
  • SQL access to user Database
  • Process
  • FTP Servers
  • Accounts based on User Database
  • Mirroring between Servers Archives
  • Audio File Check, Repair, Flag
  • Length, Encoding, Name, Tag, Checksum (ID3 lt-gt
    XML reconciliation)
  • File Push to BM (if needed)
  • Copy, then Rename transcode files as
    appropriate for BM (unless BM is equipped to do
    this task)
  • Keep Backup (on CD/DVD)

13
Studio Module
This module is used at the studio locations
  • Input
  • Audio files (in WAV, MPx)
  • Description of file
  • XML from Asset of status of previously sent files
  • Output
  • FTP processed file to AWR Server
  • XML info on file sent
  • Archival CD/DVDs
  • Process
  • ID3 Tagging
  • Rename (based on playout date or sequential
    numbering, or both)
  • Transcode for FM or SW format (if both required,
    only FM format is processed)
  • Burn CD/DVD for local archival (or non-internet
    Xfer)
  • Generates Labels as appropriate

14
Schedule Module
This module runs on a Server (other than the main
file servers)
  • Input
  • Schedule database
  • Updates of schedule in RTF format from Frequency
    Management
  • Updates of schedule via Web interface
  • Output
  • Web PR Page (schedule.awr.org)
  • PDF schedule auto-generation
  • Updated schedule database
  • Process
  • Read/Write access to the Schedule Database
  • Backup of Schedule Database

This module was 95 complete as of Autumn 05
15
Stat Report Module
This module runs on a Server (other than the main
file servers)
  • Input
  • Availability SQL Database
  • SolarWinds (SNMP) SQL Database
  • SM Schedule SQL Database (read only)
  • Asset Management entries
  • SNMP traps from monitoring devices
  • Output
  • Web access
  • SolarWinds (SNMP)
  • availability.awr.org
  • Asset Display
  • Audio Program Inventory
  • Asset Management Queries
  • Alarm generation
  • Process
  • Collect SNMP info
  • Process and Statistical analysis of Databases
  • Trigger of Alarms based on heuristics

16
Broadcast Module
This module is used at the Region Offices (and
AWR owned TX sites)
  • Input
  • Generic XML Schedule file from Asset
  • Audio Files received from Asset
  • Playout acknowledgement
  • Output
  • Generates status of file to SRM Database (based
    on the Processes accomplished)
  • site specific Schedule file (by day/week,
    depending on requirements) by transmitter (or
    automation system)
  • CD/DVD archives
  • Process
  • File Download (pull) (if not FTP Pushed)
  • Filename structure verification (may vary from
    AWRs Standard due to Playout sites preference)
  • Audio file verification
  • Length, Encoding, ID3, checksum
  • Generation of site specific Schedule File
  • Automation System (i.e. eXaudi like)
  • Process playout acknowledgement

Filename Structure AWR Standard for normal files

Filename Structure AWR Standard for Spare files
19
Filename Structure AWR Standard for Jingle/Promo
files

Major Asset Management Packages
  • Harris H-Class
  • Dalet Plus
  • IntegritSystem
  • Avid Active
  • ImageDirector
  • ImageArcadia
  • DSpace (Open Source by MIT HP)

21
Functionality
  • Distributed Storage Management (online, nearline,
    offline)
  • Multi-tiered security access level with user
    management interface
  • Optimized bandwidth usage
  • Media repurposing (transcoding, etc)
  • Searchable open (non propriatory) Database (SQL
    ?)
  • Custom multi-filename structures (input, internal
    storage, multi-output formats)
  • Built-in verification correction of integrity
    of digital assets
  • (MP3) check for length, silence detection,
    normalization, etc
  • Media Tagging (reads writes ID3 tags other
    meta-data)
  • Real-Time information, Statistical reports
  • Support for collaborative content generation
  • magazine audio file formats
  • Template management
  • Trackable process-oriented Workflow
  • Uploads, edits, sign-offs, broadcasts, repeats,
    kill date, PodCast stats
  • Media Catalogs
  • Multilingual (with support for at least UDF-8)
