Where to install

AdMaster can be installed on the broadcast PC, or any other computer (at your station or outside your station; the internet connection is required in any case).

The salespeople can have AdMaster running at their office. If supported by the playout system, the campaign changes made in AdMaster will be effective immediately (as of the next ongoing commercial break). If you haven't decided what playout to use on your station, make sure that it supports the unattended import of the traffic playlists, as this will speed up and simplify the operations very seriously.

Some playout systems require processing of media files (to determine the cue points and/or assign the internal database ID). If this is the case with your playout, you may consider installing AdMaster on the same PC that you would use to add the media files to the playout database and have them prepared for broadcasting.

If you are a multi-channel (multi-frequency or multi-station) broadcaster, you can manage the traffic for all your stations from the same installation, or you can one AdMaster installation per station. You can also pick any combination of your choice: in an example, the sales office in Houston can manage the traffic for the Houston area stations, the sales rep in Dallas can have his/her separate installation of AdMaster to manage the traffic for the Dallas area stations from your group, while the sales rep in Denver would handle the Colorado stations. Anyone would be able to send the campaign schedules directly to the other AdMaster installations: the sales rep from Denver can schedule a campaign to be carried on Dallas station, and vice versa. Setting the permissions is also possible, so you can easily determine who is authorized to send the campaigns to the specific station. Also, the recipient station can be set to accept the incoming campaigns with or without human approval.

The Workstation version takes the process to the next level: if you do not want some sales reps to have the insight view to the entire traffic, you can have them use the Workstation version, so that they can see and manage only the campaigns that they have created.
