Qnet is a software suite designed to automate the tasks of scheduling and playing songs, spots, jingles, reports and other types of services present at a radio broadcasting station.

A special accent has been put on the networking capabilities - and thereafter the name Qnet. The system is designed to manage an entire network of stations connected via ISDN lines or LAN.

The software suite is composed of several programs:

  • DATABASE - managing of main archives: songs, spots, jingles, backgrounds, live reports and timed blocks. Remote playlists editor and recorder with Speech-on-intro function. Integrated recorder/player/editor. Fast audio parameters editing. Database operations: integrated and very fast sorting and searching, editing aid operations: replacing, filling, deleting, moving, copying and swapping of database fields. Music manager for song files administration. Automatic playlists generation. Extremely rich blocks and playlists: songs, spots, jingles, backgrounds, reports, news, files, speeches, pauses, time announcements, advices, external commands execution, automatic and random song or jingle insertion (by type or group), playlist change command, sub-blocks. Pre-, mid- and end- spot events, pre-events, break-events. Spots fixing at the block beginning, at the block end, in the block (to avoid automatic recalculation of spots scheduling). Table-driven playlist editor for optimal songs scheduling. Table driven spots scheduling (media plan) for full control of spots scheduling. Economic categories management.
