Import content from multiple sources - from automation systems to XML and social media feeds - and manage it within Rapid. Where can I import content from?
Rapid supports automated import of data from RSS and XML feeds, as well as automation/playout systems, with out-of-the-box support for RCS, WideOrbit and Genesys.
Rapid also supports custom importer plugins, allowing for specific formats or data sources which aren’t supported by default.

Publisher supports simultaneous publishing of content - whether manually-created or automatically-imported - to all major digital and radio formats, including FM, DAB+, and social media. Where can I publish to?
In addition to publishing to 'live' destinations, Publisher can be used as a mechanism for backing up data to other outputs.
Rapid can publish to all of the following destinations and formats:
A custom Template Publisher also allows for publishing XML/JSON or plain-text in custom formats, while support for custom publishing plugins allows for new output formats to be added to Publisher.
View and manage your station’s lineup and programme schedule, and publish it to EPG destinations.
The EPG plugin comes bundled with Scheduler, and allows you to create EPG information in a variety of output formats, including the DAB+ EPG specifications (ETSI TS 102818 and ETSI TS 102371).
Rapid scales from importing from a single data source, and publishing to a single destination, to a full content management and publishing solution for multiple stations.
Rapid’s web-based client makes it easy to deploy across an entire organisation, and means that you can have it up-and-running in minutes, not days.
Rapid’s failover system means that there’s always an up-to-date backup server, with your configuration and content, ready to carry on creating and publishing content if something goes wrong.
