Shift Management is another module that isan after thought or does not exist in most systems,for which you still have topurchasing or look for another software program.
PCM_Gold incorperates this as a fully integrated modue of the Radio Automation Software. PCM_Gold does your music/show/commercial scheduling for you, once again with a full easy to use graphical interface.
As the PCM_Gold Shift Management Module has full access to the song data base it can producecomprehesive shifts with all the information the producer enteredabout each track. For pre-recorded shows the Shift Management Module can set up fully produced shifts incorperating full control over Timed Events. Timed events are tracks like news, specified shows thatare required to start or end at a specified time. There are 3 types of Timed Events, tracks that must start at a specified time, tracks that must end at a specified time, and tracks that should start at an aproximate time (waits for the current track to end and skips any overlapping tracks).
The FailSafe shift is also set up by the shift management module. This controls how PCM_Gold Radio Automation System deals with shifts that may have been produced with insuffeciant tracks to make up the time to a Timed Event.
