Can I make any last-minute changes to the playlist in q.air?

Yes, a user can build and change playlists in the traffic UI or during the rundown of a channel in the automation UI at any time. This includes last-minute changes (live sources, clips, graphics) with a show being “on air”. New media needs to be ingested and successfully processed for the playout node – thumbnails, preview clips and metadata are made available immediately.

This way, operators can not only make last-minute playlist changes, but they can launch any emergency video, provide updated breaking news tickers and graphics, skip or trigger events, postpone or cancel live events, swap advertisement clips, etc.
