DIGIWARE allows the fast generation of playlists and the sharing/management of the archive by multiple users for multiple channels (user right management). Playlists are automatically generated according to scheduling rules and templates that are user definable and customizable. Preview of the clips included in the playlist straight from the PC with no need of additional hardware that allows the operator to make easy editing of the clip (trimming, associate graphics). DIGIWARE merges the advertising scheduling coming from RAM-COMM with the daily playlist. DIGIWARE includes comprehensive report generation and statistics.
