Danny Chifley, 6th May 2015

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Community broadcasters rely on playout system technology to assist with automating broadcasting operations. Advances in technology have resulted in a multitude of automation software platforms available to broadcasters, but with so many different features available, which is the right direction for your station? Join us as we find out more about scheduling and playout software options for community broadcasters.

Who is this for?

Technical staff of stations looking to explore their options in regards to playout systems and scheduling software are urged to attend. Beyond technical staff, the prevalence of automated software in the contemporary broadcasting environment means that this webinar will provide valuable information for all community broadcasters.

Presented by:

  • Dan Callaghan, CRN Technical Production Coordinator
  • Brendon Telfer, Manager of Port Phillip's Radio RPP FM
  • Ross Richardson, Melbourne's RRR FM

The flagship national program for the community radio sector since 2004, The Wire is a significant alternative voice in Australian current affairs.


This paper looks at the role of Australian Policy Online (APO) as a collection of ‘grey’ public policy research and considers how this fits within the broader context of open access publishing and policy development. The amount of grey literature now being produced presents challenges for APO as well as other collecting agencies and society in general. This paper looks at who is operating in this space in Australia, the issues for collecting and preserving grey literature, and how bibliographic exchange and interoperability can help us to manage the flood of new material and reduce the duplicated effort that currently exists. While APO has been a foundational player in this field, it has reached a stage where a new solution is required - a national online collaborative collection of full text digital resources created with a vision for the benefits that the semantic web will bring.
