Switching To PlayoutONE From Another System

Music 1 users sometimes choose to change their playout systems and usually that means the Cart field must be updated. The Cart field is what tells the automation/playout system how to find the audio to play. Most internet playout system use the drive\path\filename. Most broadcast automation systems use a cart number of their own design, often just number. That is the case with PlayoutONE.  Each piece of audio imported into PlayoutONE is given a unique UID.  That number must be in the playlists that Music 1 makes. When switching an active Music 1 license to work with a new PlayoutONE database/library, here's what to do.

  1. Import your audio library into PlayoutONE

  2. In Music 1, use the update function that will make a match on the Title+Artist field in both the Music 1 and PlayoutONE databases.

This will replace the obsolete Cart numbers on the Music 1 cards with the new PlayoutONE UIDs.    After the update, you'll probably find some tracks that didn't match, the old cart data remaining. Those will need to be manually updated.  You can add the Cart field to any Music 1 category view to quickly sort on that field to find the errant ones.
