Schedule News

Post by sbourghardt »

Hi,
We have for the past years had news read live in the studio, but will in the future get it hourly as a .wav-file. I wonder if there is some kind of guide on how to use the News-tool in PF and use that.

I watched the videos on News & Advert, but the second video ends just as the news part starts.

Just checked the video, but here it played fine. The last 6 Minutes explain the News categories.

What exactly is not clear to you?
Basically you can define a News category and then assign audio files to it.you then select ‘News’ as the playing type within an overlay and select the news category to use.
This way a track from that news category is picked by the overlay player and played out - pretty much like for adverts.

The rest depends a bit from where you get the hourly news audio files, eg. you download them regularly and replace your old news file with the new one.
