This article is part of a series on Zetta.
#engage and Futuri Mobile integrate with several automation systems, including Zetta. This series of articles is generally geared toward your station's IT/engineering staff, but it's a good idea for program directors to be familiar at a higher level with this information too.
NOTE: If you plan to use interactive programming on the air, you will need to license the Zetta Crowd Interface from RCS. If you do not plan to use any of these interactive voting features, Futuri can install our Echo software instead (which does not require a separate license from RCS).
The Zetta Crowd Interface will generally be installed by RCS Support, and that will allow you to interface your Zetta system with Futuri.
- Now Playing information - Song elements and some other commands will be configured to export from Zetta to Futuri.
- Voting session integration - Zetta Crowd Interface has built-in integration for #engage, and we'll configure Zetta Crowd to communicate with our system for this information.
- Music Logs - Zetta will periodically send copies of the day's music logs to Futuri. These music logs are used for two primary purposes:
- Voting Sessions - Depending on the voting feature your station uses, music logs help to tell Futuri what the vote options should be (or to see what songs should be used for separation purposes).
- Instant Alerts - Users can sign up to receive alerts when their requests are about to play on your station. Futuri's system compares what your station is playing now with what's scheduled in the near future, so that we can send these alerts ahead of when the request actually plays (so there's time for the user to turn on the radio).
