The Planning Rules
The backbone of OnAir TV
The Planning Rules is the part of the TV Scheduling software that holds all the rules that are used to generate playlists. This part takes the hard work out of the scheduling process with its built-in intelligence. The Planner makes OnAir TV a very powerful tool for TV channels who would like to plan and schedule in an efficient way.
The Long Tem Planning
The replacement of your Excel sheets
The long Term Planning is not only the replacement for Excel Sheets, PDF’s and Word documents, it will also serve as a template for the automatic scheduling proces.
The long term planning is the highest level of the Planning Rules and it consist of 3 layers: Blocks, Reruns and Airings. Each of these layers serve different ways of scheduling. With these layers you can automate the entire scheduling proces.
Blocks are reusable containers that holds Scheduling Rules like: Start with a commercial break, then schedule a promo and then schedule the latest world news and end with a commercial break.
You can create a block once and then reuse it multiple times, like every Monday between 10 and 11.
Reruns are placeholders for items that have an Premiere and then needs to be repeated multiple times.
An example of a Rerun is: Schedule the Saturday night documentary every Saturday at 9 and repeat it Monday at 4, Wednesday at 8 and Friday at 7.
Easily define series in the library by dragging items to the correct serie and season. Put placeholders for series in the blocks and series will be placed fully automatically.
Airings are items that need to be planned one or multiple times at a fixed times like: Schedule the concert ate Sunday at 2 and schedule it again Wednesday at 8
Blocks can be populated with a variety of Commands. Commands are lines in your planning rules that will automate certain actions. OnAir TV contains a big set of commands. Here are a few examples:
Generate and manage your TV playlists
The Scheduler creates the playlists based on your Long Term Planning.
Once the playlist is created it can be changed manually if needed.
The result is a playlist which can be exported to your play-out system of choice. The playlist can also be exported to a variety of EPG formats.
