Airtime 2.5.0, released today, introduces a customisable Playout History alongside many bug fixes and stability improvements. Working on new features for The Scope radio station, based at Ryerson University, the Airtime team developed a template-based system for tracking broadcast playout.
Airtime 2.5.0 enables you to log playout in the exact format you require and export that data in CSV or PDF file formats. This is a great feature for professional radio stations who need an organised (digital) paper trail. Advertisers and stakeholders, the DJ community and listeners will benefit from having easy access to detailed playout history in formats that are easy to share forward.
The playout history templates can be customized to comply with the broadcasting regulations in your country. This feature can also enable you to see playback statistics on each file and show in your library. That data can also be edited manually, including data from the past.

Airtime is open source broadcast automation, playout and scheduling software.
With Airtime's new playout history menu there are three ways to view your past programming, Log Sheet, File Summary and Show Summary. Log Summary produces a chronological view of all past content. File Summary allows you to choose a period of time and call specific meta-data about those files. Show Summary brings up data relating to particular show slots in your programming. With all history views you have the ability to modify and manually add data to your playout history.
Airtime 2.5.0 also features experimental support for the newly released Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander), and we welcome feedback on it.
Don't forget, Airtime Pro now offers unlimited streaming for just $49.95 a month.
