Media Sharing

OAS Playout provides the capability to allow a radio station to share its media and database content with other OAS Playout users via the cloud. This can greatly assist in then allowing presenters to broadcast remotely using existing station content.

You can view a short demonstration of this capability by watching the following YouTube clip:

The overall concept is shown in the following diagram.

Content is uploaded to the cloud at the radio station using OAS Playout Manager. This can comprise either subsets of the media, for example a playlist or jingle package. Or it can be used to keep a remote copy of the entire Playout database and audio in sync with the master copy at the radio station. The remote presenters can then download the desired content using OAS Playout Express.

It's also possible to download and then import content into 3rd party playout systems using the freely available OAS Playout Media Sync application.

You can find out more in the dedicated OAS Playout Media Sharing Guide (which is also installed with both OAS Playout and OAS Playout Express)

OAS Playout Media Sync

OAS Playout Media Sync is a free application which allows packages to be downloaded from the cloud, extracted and then imported into 3rd party playout systems.

This can include OAS Playout Manager itself - for example it is possible to utilise this tool to provide database updates and audio updates to remote instances of Manager. This process is covered in more detail in the OAS Playout Media Sharing Guide
