Cue Sheet format
This document is to help understand how the Cue Sheets are formatted in PlayoutONE. They are simple flat files containing the required information so that the billboard system can output the required meta data.
When importing a Cue Sheet for a file it must exist alongside the audio asset. So if you are importing a pre-recorded show under the UID PREREC2.mp3 then you need to provide the Cue Sheet with the filename PREREC2.cue in the same import folder and if you're importing in PlayoutONE directly or via Auto Importer, the Cue Sheet will be imported alongside that item.
The structure of the file is very simple. Provide the following in this exact order for each cue point.
INDEX (Identify each cue point. Usually start at 0 and increment by one each time)
CUE (Position in the overall timeline where this cue point item would be triggered)
TITLE (Self explanatory)
ARTIST (Self explanatroy)
LENGTH (The length of this item)
ALBUM (Name of the album this item comes from)
ISRC (International Standard Recording Code)
So an example Cue Sheet would look like this:
INDEX 0 CUE 0 TITLE Faith ARTIST George Michael LENGTH 156602 ALBUM ISRC INDEX 1 CUE 162661 TITLE Blame It on Me ARTIST George Ezra LENGTH 187581 ALBUM ISRC INDEX 2 CUE 353656 TITLE These Dreams ARTIST Heart LENGTH 217954 ALBUM ISRC
All times are in milliseconds and whilst not all information is required the lines must exist. So if there is no Album information, you must still include the ALBUM keyword.
