How 42NET Magic Is Made?

It is not a magic or miracle, it is simply a clever solution for your radio station. To answer all your questions, let's see what it is really about...

Music ID

The program, that’s the dream of all music programmers! It can take lots of energy to fill in the required database fields for each song, such as the album art, genre, composers, writers, publisher, label and the year of release, just to mention a few from the thousand. At 42NET we believe, that a music programmer’s task is to create the music design of the radio, instead of gathering the required metadata from the internet, where it is all available for public. This was the start-up idea when creating our MusicID application, which works in total accordance with the popular Discogs database, so it is able to fill in all the metadata and background information for any song, that can be found in our 42NET database without any further help. It is required to be registered in the Discogs database, but this can be done easily in a few moments. MusicID does dot require any setup or further configuration, it is simply doing it’s job.

Multi Player

Optional number of stations, with one Playout | It is typical for all 42NETMedia modules, that they stand for high quality and professionalism. The ornate proof of this is the MultiPlayer module that allows running and monitoring optional number of playlists from one computer. Compared to our rivals solutions MultiPlayer is not only able for playing out more playlists in the same time, but these lists are real-time editable as well. Common contents have to be created on only one playlist, and with a few clicks, they are locatable on other lists with ease. Number of parallel running playlists can only be limited by hardware restrictions.

PTA

Synchronize easily | PTA is a great treasure for mall networks and small networks that are running more than one transmitters and playlists. With the help of PTA files and remote databases can be easily synchronized with the database located in the central server can be quickly copied to remote computers and workstations. This seems handy in radios, where variant content must be played in different cities, either in common networked or time tabled structures. Besides music, it is able to synchronize commercial blocks, jingles and other contents, including complete playlists which can be loaded automatically in to the remote database.


Stream IN

StreamIN gives you the opportunity to mix content coming from an online stream into your live assist or recorded show with ease, for example when the central broadcast is coming on a stream signal. Local playlist is under playout up to the point when the command signal arrives – from satellite, rs232, TCP/IP – and gives order to switch down. Of course it is possible to give switch commands according to time table, where the mix of local and central broadcast flow can be switched automatically, without manual interruption.

Switch Out

In the lack of a broadcast-matrix chain there is an option to switch between signals of incoming sources, from other studios, remote locations with a use of some clever software solutions, with the help of impulse or event commanded control. In case of windowed playlist, the software automatically mixes the signal coming from satellite, and by according to scheduled timetables, playlist commands, RS232 or TCP/IP protocol, local playlist is automatically played out. Typical example for this might be when mixing local jingles onto incoming signal, or playing out local commercial blocks or news content. There is no need for thousand dollar’s devices any more, here is 42NET!


Admin Tools

All settings in one place | Centered settings and user rights configuration is the definition of 42NET AdminTools application. It’s main task is to store and run all configuration setup of any 42NET application that is running on the system, and to handle user rights and access. Centered management, minimalized error options | System administrators can manage any 42NET applications’ setup and configuration from any computer on the network. For each module – in case of having sufficient rights – local changes can be made, but with a bigger number of workstations, or radios running with more studios sometimes it is impossible for the administrators to manage all settings locally and customized. Because the above mentioned reasons, 42NETMedia decided to come up with a solution that is able to handle all workstation’s settings, and all users’ rights from one center, easily and quickly. Our mobile application that is soon to be launched will make remote administration, continuous management even more easier, giving more flexibility to system administrators. In agree with corporate systems | 42NET applications are able to synchronize with ActiveDirectory and LDAP. Access right matrixes can be attached to user groups, and these settings can be easily overwrited for each user of the group if it is required. The deep – mouse click deep – restrictions can be a great help to secure the radios’ broadcast, and to minimalize human error factors, which is supported by the automatic generated and very detailed log files.

Mlink

Mlink’s core feature is to sync the 42NET database with most of the music scheduler applications. Of course this not all, nearly anything can do this. But MLink has some great features which approaches the synchronization in a much more innovative way. Mlink’s secret is about a hidden component in the system’s background. When the user imports a new item in any module of 42NET (it doesn’t matter if it is a song, a jingle, ad or voicetrack etc.) it will automatically appear in the third party applications (eg. MusicMaster, PowerGold, RCS GSelector or MusicOne) database. In the external applications all audio files will be available for listening; cue pointed and markers can be placed and all changes will beupdated in 42NET database straight away. This is far not everything that MLink can provide. Playlists templates, daily playlist generation, sponsorships, jingle scheduling are the features that can be customized by the user. No need for any export-import functions, the system does every step for you in the background. Tons of work and resources might be saved up in Micro- and macro scheduling, as it can be even fully automated. It is important to know that the handling of the reserved songs, the reporting of the on-air logs and contents are travelling automatically between the different modules of 42NET system in real time and invisible. If you wish to transfer your prepared playlists to other stations, regional radios or remote studios, NewMedia application is doing this job totally automatic. We believe that our innovations are not only making our customers life easier, but it boosts up 42NETMedia family social life even more.

Sync

All in solution for radios running from more locations | 42NET Sync is the solution to keep unrestricted number of workstations in complete online syncrone without continuous usage of the complete bandwidth, as it can be time scheduled or the data usage parametrically set up as desired. With the help of this unique 42NET application, data can be transferred as quick as thought between remote studios, on the spot reporters or networked radio databases, without manual interruption. Awesome solution, as loss of internet connection can not make any harm from now.


Active Directory

42NET is used by several giant network and radio houses, but the use of Active Directory and managing of users might be helpful even in smaller studios, so it is essential that the playout system can integrate with CRM solutions. All our modules are able to manage the users’ data stored int he database between AD and 42NET, and by going backwards, more functions are available. From now it is not a problem if a collague is leaving the company, or you have a new face sitting opposite you, or maybe someone has just granted some more access to new modules to work with. It is far enough to give access to these users in ActiveDirectory, and these settings will be applied in all 42NET applications inmediatley.

Media Asset Management

As for long years, it was a privilege of TV stations, now days it is impossible to imagine the life of radio stations without MAM systems as well. It is an accepted and usual for radio stations that they broadcast exclusive content, while gaining more popularity on the market. Purchased content and royalty management, OnAir logs and licenses were managed manually, archiving took ages and tons of paper work, not to mention the required human resource. For solving these issues, using a MAM system is essential.
