Fidelity Media Releases MegaSeg 2.6.2 Update for Radio Automation and DJ Mixing

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA, Illinois—May 12, 2003—Fidelity Media, Inc. today released MegaSeg 2.6.2, an update to its live MP3 DJ and radio music scheduling and automation software, that adds new features and many improvements including direct access to sound output devices on Mac OS X, as well as new Library Text Cleaner functions. Also new to this version are performance improvements, support for ID3 Comment tags, a new Auto-Save Library preference, and other bug fixes.

This new version retains its ability to create automatic music schedules and timed playlist events, giving users the ability to create custom music and video automation solutions. In addition, MegaSeg can generate charts for users to visually determine the rotation and play counts for any track. This helps ensure that play rotations are even and varied hour by hour.

MegaSeg unique mixing method is streamlined to eliminate screen clutter, and designed with a different approach to live DJ and radio music mixing. MegaSeg does not attempt to mimic the look of a “real world” DJ device on screen. Fidelity Media believes well designed software finds interface solutions appropriate for the screen, rather than try to look like a physical device, which often falls short in usability.

Another unique feature of MegaSeg is its flexibility of audio outputs for live DJ’s. Only MegaSeg gives the ability to choose either its Discrete Output Mode or the default mode of using two outputs dedicated to preview and program content. This allows MegaSeg to be used without a hardware mixer for a compact setup, or with a mixer for added beat-mixing options.

MegaSeg provides users with the only method to organize music using multiple categories, with a Boolean display option when viewing multiple categories at once. MegaSeg also speeds up overall access to your music or video library with a fast search engine, as well as a “type to select” feature that’s based on the current sort order.

For live performances MegaSeg’s stability is unrivaled. Combined with Apple’s bullet proof Mac OS X, MegaSeg can run solid for months on end as a radio station automation solution or as a business background music system.
