Studio-1.40.0 - 2022/12/15


Manage | Video Details Metadata

The fields “Date Available” and “Date of Expiration” are now included for each Video. “Date Available” is automatically set to the current day of ingestion. Additionally, the option to enable or disable a Video is now available and by default is set to “Enabled”. If set to “Disable” the Linear tab is removed from the Video.


Schedule | Export Schedule to PDF

There is now the option to export a given week’s programming to a PDF. Located at the bottom right corner of the Calendar View in Schedule is the text “Export to PDF”. Clicking this text will trigger a PDF download of the current week of programming.


Manage | Series Automation Programs: Shuffle First in First Out (FIFO)

Shuffle FIFO randomizes episodes from a series subject to:

  • Randomize episodes based on selected Series of the Automation Program with Linear programs in selected series containing specific Internal Title.

  • Do Not Repeat Within (X Minutes) look-back for unique episodes to prevent re-scheduling. If all episodes are eliminated due to look-back, the fallback logic will choose the oldest episode first within Do Not Repeat Within (X Minutes) timeframe. This results in an evenly distributed set of episodes across the given look-back timeframe.

If option 1 is chosen and an episode has more than 1 linear program, Series Automation will select programs in this order:

  • Linear program in the selected Series with Internal Title containing the current channel's name.

  • Linear program in the selected Series with Internal Title containing the text "Default".

  • Linear program in the selected Series with empty Internal Title text.

  • First linear program in the selected Series if no matches to the above sequence.
