Record an Audio feature


What's inside this article:

Basic information

An Audio feature is a short clip recorded from a Broadcast program. For example, an Audio feature might include just the opening 2 minutes of a Broadcast program. You can share an Audio feature on the public site to generate interest in a particular Broadcast program.

This article explains how to record an Audio feature from a Broadcast program.

NOTE: You can only record an Audio feature from a Broadcast program (audio). It is not currently possible to record a feature from a Video show.

Open the Broadcast program settings

To open the settings for a Broadcast program:

  1. Go to Stream > Scheduler & Template week in the primary navigation.
  2. Ensure the correct audio tube is selected under Tubes.
  3. Choose your preferred view:
    • Scheduler: Record a one-off Audio feature from an individual episode.
    • Template week: Record a regular Audio feature from every episode of the same program.
  4. Click the block for the Broadcast program and select Edit.

The settings for the Broadcast program open.

Request recording

IMPORTANT: Request recording at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time for the episode. Otherwise, recording might not work.

To request recording of an Audio feature:

  1. Scroll to the Feature section and hit + Add feature.
  2. Complete the settings for the Audio feature. It is essential to tick Record. Otherwise, the Audio feature will not play on the public site.
  3. Select Save feature.
  4. The Audio feature will not be recorded unless you also hit Save in the bottom-right corner of the Broadcast program settings.

Find a recorded Audio feature

After the Broadcast program ends, the recorded Audio feature is available in Pangea CMS (the content type is Audio feature).

The Audio feature might be saved with the Published, Draft, or Edited status. This depends which option you selected during setup.

Share an Audio feature

Many options are available for sharing an Audio feature on the public site. Try the following:

  • Share an Audio feature on a Multimedia widget.
  • Directly embed an Audio feature on a text content page (such as an Article).

Check which programs have an Audio feature

Via Scheduler, you can distinguish which Broadcast programs have an Audio feature. Under Filter, select Has feature(s). When this option is selected, programs that have an Audio feature are marked light blue.
