Audicom is the only software for
real automation at the market !



     In this Demo you will see many features of Audicom.
     None of them are available in others Radio software's
     (Please see our Comparative Table)

     Audicom is real automation using Artificial Intelligence
     technology. Other brands only gives you Live Assist
     support, because each commercial or musical tune must
     be added “at hand”. Then, they only plays the list you
     have previously made.
     They work like the Laundry machine at your home...
Our secret:
Artificial Intelligence technology
   This new Science, created at
    the MIT Laboratories in USA,
    allows the computers to
    imitate the human been
    behavior

   Only Audicom gives you this
    powerful technology !




                                     3
Why Audicom is able to offer you a
better Radio software ?
                 Because we invented the Radio
                  software. Since 1983 we develop the world
                  first audio card for PC. The world first bit
                  compression system (10 years ahead of
                  MP3), and the world first software for
                  Radio Automation.

                 In 1988 we introduce the world first PC
                  based radio automation system. In 1990
                  we exhibit it at the NAB 90 Exhibition in
                  Atlanta, USA. We were the only company
                  of the market to show this technology

                 Since then, we have sold PC based audio
                  systems in 40 countries.

                 Due this invention, we have received
                  several Awards like the First National
                  Prize in Technological Innovation, the
                  BACH golden medal and so on...      4

We will start with the
Audicom installation


Audicom allows you to personalize, for each user,
the screen and the features that each person is
authorized to use
   Each user will have a name
    and a password.

   Only authorized people can use
    the Audicom

    Audicom creates a LOG FILE
    that informs you about who did
    changes or operation errors.

   If an operator intents to do an
    incorrect operation, Audicom
    will inform in English about the
    mistake



                                       12
Authorization Lists for
each user
                     The Radio Supervisor
                      fills an authorization
                      list in order to allow
                      each user with the
                      features they are
                      entitled to do.
                     By example, an
                      operator is authorized
                      to send Ads to air but
                      not to change the
                      order of it.
                     Or you can hide to DJ
                      Oscar, the music in
                      the Hard Disc that is
                      property of DJ
                      Alexander

                                         13
Each user can have his own screen with the
pushbutton that she/he wishes




     Each user can change the skin of
      her/his desk

     Only the pushbutton for the program
      modules he is authorized to use will
      appear

     Of course the Supervisor Level do
      not have any restrictions



                                             14
Each user can freely choose the
desk (skin) she/he prefers




   The user can
    work in any
    workstation, in
    all the points
    of the LAN
    Then, the
    exact screen
    he designed
    will appear

                                  15
Choose output channels

   Audicom has two stereo
    recording inputs and four stereo
    outputs. Then is possible to use
    up to four faders at the console.
   You can use several low cost
    cards or a professional 12
    channel Solidyne DSP48
   A simple Dialog box allows for
    channel configuration.
   Of course, you can use the
    conventional mode of summing
    all channels over one single
    stereo output

                                        16
Now, we will go to see the On Air
Screen used at the Master Control
Room (MCR)
On Air screen: a brilliant solution !




                                        18
Audicom is different from
conventional software
                Instead of the confusion of other
                 brands, you will see a well
                 organized on air screen

                All the Music, Spots, Cuts, etc, that
                 will go to air are organized in one
                 playlist

                Each event has the exact hour,
                 minute and second that goes to the
                 air (which other brand offers
                 you this feature ?)




                                                         19
Each event has its own color and
exact hour




   Red bar indicates On-Air cut
   Yellow bar indicates CUE/PFL
   The green field (marked $) is the commercial batch
   Light blue is Auto-DJ music (self programmed by Audicom)
   Yellow field is Live Program
   Pink filed is satellite (automatic use)
   At the left, you will find the exact on-air time           20
    Each day the CiberPlay module loads
    the program and the commercial
    batch
   Audicom loads daily the .LOG file
    that is automatically generated
    (see TRAFFIC) with all the
    commercials of the radio station

   At the same time it loads the
    .PGM file with all the instructions of
    Music, News, Meteor & Time, etc
   Usually only 7 .PGM files are used
    (Sunday, Monday, etc)

   All the title and block duration is
    informed here

   The Intro time and the time error of
    the complete block is informed too       21
The sum of the two files LOG & PGM
allows for a full automatic or Live
supported operation, 24 hours a day

But ... What happens if the Radio
do not have DJ nor operator at that
moment... ?                                      66
Audicom sends the News to air
without operator, fully automatic !
                    You have the automatic News screen
                     software
                    If the News are in the category: URGENT,
                     it goes to air when the musical tune, now
                     on air, ends

                    You select the audio file that presents the
                     News, to open the News Space
                    The last news recorded by the call center

                     find any News recorded at the call center,
                     the entire block is skipped.


                                                             67
Audicom can end a batch with less than
half of a second error !




   Audicom inserts the NEWS, but it can not guess about the
    NEWS duration… Then it uses a time compensation system
    that eliminates programmed musical tunes and manages the
    Radio Promos up to the exact end time.
   This way, the automatic News insertion do not change the daily
    scheduling of the radio.
    Do we need to inform you that only Audicom brings your
    Radio this advanced facility ?
                                                                 68

The Client File is the key of the
Traffic system

   In only one page you will all the key information to allow Audicom to create the
    daily advertisement batches. Without a single error !




                                                                                       105
Traffic module: creation of a batch

   You can generate the batch
    day by day, or for a whole
    week.
   If the status of one client
    changes during the day, you
    can change the batch, the
    same day ,all the times you
    need.                           Audicom informs you in
                                       this space about
   If a low priority client have        rejected Ads

    their Ad out of some
    batches, Audicom informs
                                     The Traffic module creates the batch in
    you to give the opportunity      seconds
    to renegotiate with them.

                                                                           106
INVOICING
   Probably you have an invoicing software at your radio, but your software do not
    manage the Ads that did not go to air. Your software do not manage neither the
    different price rates of the hours of the day... Or last minute changes that do not
    allow that some Ads goes to the air... Etc…

   Our invoicing is based on the real on air time of each client advertising

   Then, the wise solution used in many Radios with Audicom is to do a previous
    invoicing. Audicom gives too a printed listing of aired Ads for each client. And
    then use this information as an input for your invoicing software. A very brilliant
    idea !




                                                                                          107
Future Income Budget; A powerful tool
that only Audicom gives you !

   Audicom is able to do a “ future invoicing” That is, you can invoice on
    May all your clients with a July date. Since Audicom do not have the real
    on air time, it will use the Client Contract information. Then, if some
    clients do not have scheduled Ads for July or have reduced the
    advertising campaigns, it will be reflected in this virtual invoicing. This will
    give you enough time to renegotiate the contracts. This will help you to
    have a close contact with the salesman people and to evaluate them with
    anticipation.
