Center Stage Station Configurations

In addition to scheduling informational, promotional and commercial messages, CSScheduler is used for station configurations. This includes the creation of station IDs and licensing Center Stage Live and other add-on modules.

Station Configuration

Station and Logos, is a system-wide configuration that defines how the station will be identified throughout the Center Stage Live system. Station IDs may be your call letters, street name or any other unique identifier. This information is used internally, allowing the individual modules to identify what configuration and/or copy is used for which station.

  1. Start Center Stage Scheduler from the shortcut on the computer desktop.
  2. Select “Station and Logos” from the Tools menu. 
  3. Ensure that the Start In directory is correct.
