BMS System min. requirements:

One or more standard computer MS Windows 2000 or MS Windows XP, 1 standard audio-card. If networking linear audio we recommend a 100 mbit/s Ethernet standard network. The BMS system can be used on one computer but there may be limitations on simultaneous usage of the individual BMS software modules. BMS EditRadio functions stand alone on MS Windows 98/Millenium as well.

Operational requirements:

Knowledge of MS Windows standard handling and studying of the BMS manuals and support for the intended use and customisation.

Installation requirements:

MS Windows standard installation knowledge.

If networking is to be deployed knowledge of that is required.

Support:

Helpdesk, 09.00-16.00 C.E.T, Free BMS FAQ and tips at www.bcc.se, 24/365 support agreement is available.

Service packs: Available at the BMS website to registered users.

 

General specifications:

The BMS system will handle most standard audio file formats available in the Windows environment usable through Direct X or ACM technology. (MP3, MP2 Linear WAV etc. etc).

 

Language and menus may be customized in the INI files for most messages.

 

The Libraries, playlists and logfiles consist of  delimited ASCII data and may be imported to MS Office and most databases or others that have import routines for such files.

 

External Trig GPIO, like Faderstart, requires a Game Port or a special hardware card. With such a card the BMS system provides automation of dynamic timing of external events of unknown duration. (News, call ins, feeds etc.).

Connecting external databases requires configuration of ODBC and BMS SQL connection scripts. With this BMS may connect to all systems providing for required data and ODBC connectivity.
