Etere Multichannel Editor provides an integrated interface for the real-time management, edit and control of all your channels. The application integrates seamlessly with Etere Executive Scheduling and Etere STMan, enabling quick edits, movements and insertions of Secondary Events.
Managing multiple channels with multiple events does not need to be complex. Etere Multichannel Editor provides an easy management, update and monitoring of schedules across multiple channels in a simple and easy way to meet all your programming needs. It allows you to have complete control and simultaneous monitoring of all channels on a single platform. With one click, you have access to the software tools to insert events, search for events, crawl events and replace events over multiple channels.
Etere Multichannel Editor provides a simple interface designed with quick access in mind. To access, edit and update any of the schedules, simply select the schedule to open the Etere Executive Editor interface. From the Executive Editor interface, the operator can manage the daily schedule, insert events, move events, delete events and publish changes to the automation schedule instantly.
From the same interface, you can send a command to Etere STMan to indicate a crawl request on a preset device. This can be used to display a crawl text to alter information, for example to indicate a breaking news situation. You can also create and insert new secondary events such as logos, script files or scheduled event information. For each secondary event, there is also the option to select the station the secondary event should be associated with.
Etere Multichannel Editor displays the event titles, event duration and a low-resolution preview of all events. Users have the flexibility to prioritise the monitoring of events which are more crucial than others. The preview of the schedules can also be configured to have a display of the essential information needed.
The event details can be displayed with two types of views:
■ Go to On-Air Event: This view allows you to see the events that are on-air
■ Go to: hh:ss:ss:ff: This view allows you to see all events at a selected time
Additionally, Etere Multichannel Editor offers an alert feature that notifies the user before the end of an event and before the next event starts. Each event status is branded with labels of different colours for an easy reference. Etere allows you to view and make changes to the schedule of multiple channels easily to meet the demands of a fast-moving mediascape. Etere eliminates the need to switch between multiple interfaces and platforms to ensure higher operational efficiency and a better way of working.

Etere Multichannel Editor provides a tight integration with Etere Executive Scheduling to manage quick edits and updates to the schedule from a single interface. Get the most from your programming with a full menu of integrated features to manage the daily broadcast schedule of multiple channels including the insertion of events, movement and deletion of events.
Etere Multichannel Editor integrates seamlessly with Etere STMan to allow you to create new secondary events and to send graphics, script files and scheduled event information to the schedule. From the same interface, you can also send a command to Etere STMan for the crawl script to be executed on a preset device. Using this feature, it is possible to send a crawl text to update the information about an urgent event, for example, a breaking news announcement. Additionally, you may also send a passthru (which is a type of secondary event) to send custom hexadecimal commands to any device, for example a logo generator, subtitler, crawl generator or router.
The emergency event insertion enables the easy insertion of events into a specific position within the automation schedule and across multiple stations. This is especially useful when changes need to be made just before the the program goes on-air. Without the need to crawl between applications, you can manage changes on the fly with ease and speed.
Etere Multichannel Editor also features a remote control panel display that is an important feature of the playout. It allows the operator to have control of the playout. During programming, the remote control counts down the time to the next scheduled commercial break whereas during breaks it counts down the time to the end of break.
