We understand that software compatibility with a customer’s current system is a key concern. Our broad list of existing customers gives us extensive experience interfacing MusicMaster with other software and hardware installations. Only a brief summary of technical information is listed below. We would be happy to provide a detailed IT Guide for review at your request.
MusicMaster uses a small USB security key that you can quickly attach to any computer where you want to use MusicMaster. There is no need to purchase licensing for every computer you might want to use. One key allows you access on as many computers as you have. You simply purchase enough keys for all of your staff members who will use MusicMaster. If you prefer, you can purchase a network key that connects to a single server computer in your office and allows all computers on the network to access MusicMaster without the need for individual keys. We also have accessories that allow the USB key to be installed inside many desktop computers to prevent loss or damage. Just let us know your needs.
MusicMaster is designed for use on computers running Microsoft Windows® operating systems. It can also be used on Mac computers in a Windows virtual machine. We support server and workstation versions of Windows, both 32 and 64-bit, from Windows 2000 through the latest released versions of Windows 7 and Server 2008. Your system should have the latest service packs and security updates installed. We recommend computer hardware that provides very good performance when running multiple applications on your selected operating system. Such hardware would typically include a fast local hard drive (7200 rpm or better) or network connection (100Mb or better), a generous amount of system memory, and a speedy processor (Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, Dual Core, or equivalent CPU or faster). We also recommend a screen resolution of at least 1280 x 1024 since you can open and view data in many different panels and windows in MusicMaster at the same time.
MusicMaster data can be shared simultaneously by multiple users in a local-area network environment. You install the MusicMaster software on each workstation, and place the database files on your server. A fast (100Mb or better) wired network is recommended for this type of operation.
We have the most advanced interface system on the planet! You can hook up MusicMaster to export logs to your automation system, import commercials from your traffic system, and even reconcile changes back into MusicMaster from automation the next day. The bottom line is that if your other systems provide a means to connect, MusicMaster can connect to them. We would be happy to coordinate any integration with your provider.
