What we've done this winter

We are constantly working on improvements and new features in Digispot. We can’t keep it to ourselves any longer!

What you get since version 2.16.3?

Software distribution packages

Added:

  • #68002 Actual driver for security keys (for all applications).

Digispot II Matrix

Fixed:

  • #67118 When commutation is performed on the outputs located at the bottom of a long list, there is a scroll to the beginning.

DDB

Fixed:

  • #66812 After removing one block from the main schedule, the block remains in the schedule of the receiving side.

DJin

Fixed:

  • #66767 DJin restarts when you stop recording in the Voicetrack window.
  • #68237 Recording gain settings of the ASIO and WAVE devices do not apply to the level indicator.
  • #66981 Player doesn't take into account the shutdown of the pause auto-fill system.
  • #66758 At the end of the application a schedule backup is saved only for today.
  •  

Added:

  • #66882 Ability to use the schedule block template when importing from a text file. The block is immediately created with all the necessary properties, they do not need to be specified manually.

Since version 2.17.0 there are new improvements in different parts.

The new module "Program Guide" is added

The Program Guide module is a working tool for the program director or the main editor of a radio station. You can make a program schedule  without going into technical details (design of the broadcast, conditions for exit from the blocks, etc.). You focus on the programs themselves and the overall picture of the broadcast.
The module forms a transmission grid in conjunction with an on-air grid, it’s convenient to schedule individual programs with specific dates and times, with specific presenters and guests.

The module is new, and we are actively refining it. On this sprint we fixed:

  • #67332 Impossible to filter the list of programs in the media plan.
  • #67451 Name of the program is not fully displayed in the commercial schedule column.
  • #67449 Value of the field "Broadcast" is not saved in the tariff scale in the spot type properties.
  • #67448 In the tariff scale in the drop-down list of the "Broadcast" field, the names of programs are not sorted by name.
  • #67672 Used program can be deleted without warning.
  • #67740 It's possible to enter invalid characters in the fields where the time and the duration are indicated.
  •  

And they managed to add:

  • #67038 Display of blocks per day from the active schedule scale.
  • #67042 Advanced editor of programs, in which individual templates are created and parameters of each program are set.

The new module "Integration with bpm-online" added

The plugin eliminates the radiostation employees from routine manual operations by transferring data from a bmp-online CRM-system to Digispot II Media Planner and back. As a result, it saves staff time, reduces the influence of the human factor and helps to avoid errors.
