Auto-Importer - Options Tab


Preserve options are only available when using the import method 'Specific UID'. When an item is checked, it will preserve the existing values when updating an item. If the item doesn't exist then it's likely the value will be blank.

Audio Details

Available to both audio import methods.

Normalise Analyses the audio for LUFS and Peak normalisation. Oversweep Sets the oversweep value for the item importing to true.
Detect if Audio Fades Analyses the audio to see if the item fades Set Audio As Fade Sets the fade value for the item importing to true. This setting can not be used in conjunction with 'Detect If Audio Fades'
Trim Silence Analyses the audio and sets the Trim In and Trim out respectively where the audio starts and ends. The threshold of this setting can be altered in the 'Overrides' tab. Set Extro Analyses the audio and automatically sets the Extro. The threshold of this setting can be altered in the 'Overrides' tab.


Ignore PlayoutONE Meta Data When checked, if PlayoutONE Meta Data is detected then it will be ignored. PlayoutONE Meta Data can be found on files that are imported from other PlayoutONE systems.
Re-Import Failed Files When checked, if a file importing fails to import, it will be retried up to three times further. The interval between these retries can be set on the Import Details page.
AutoDJ When checked the AutoDJ property will be set to true.
Sequential UID When checked, PlayoutONE will look for the next available UID starting at 0. When unchecked, the next available UID will be found by starting at the largest UID in the database. For example, if in the library we have UIDs 2,3,5 then with this option checked the next available UID would be 1. If the option was unchecked the next available UID would be 6.
WebVT® Import Only checked when the Import Profile is being used as a WebVT® ingest.
Always Import Identical Audio When checked, Auto Importer will always import audio into the database regardless of whether the file already exists in the database. When unchecked, Auto Importer will check to see if the files MD5 hash already exists within the database. If a matching MD5 hash is found then the file will not be imported.
Add UID Prefix When checked a prefix will be added to the UID when imported. For Example, typing COM in the prefix box and importing a file named 123.wav using the  'Specific UID' import method would import the file into PlayoutONE as UID COM123.
Copy To Training DB When checked, any music logs importing into PlayoutONE will also be copied to the selected training database. Please note, only Music Logs can be copied to the training database. Traffic logs will not be copied.
Import Other Logs When checked, you can select a secondary log to be imported once a log has been imported through this profile. For example, we may choose to select our Traffic Log profile for secondary log import so that if we have to reimport our Music Log, the traffic log also get's re-imported. 
Log Delimiter Changes the log delimiter from the default 'Tab' format to a custom format.
Only Import Into UID Enabled when used with 'Import Specific UID' method. If checked, any item importing through this importer profile will be imported into the UID specified.
