TagStation's Settings tab enables you to define default images and text which your listeners will see in connected cars, in the NextRadio app, and on HD radios that support The Artist Experience, if you have licensed TagStation for HD.
A completed Settings tab is content priority #1 for every broadcast channel.

NextRadio Alignment: Use this setting to align your FM signal with the visuals coming from TagStation so they arrive simultaneously in the NextRadio app and connected cars.
If your middleware has a profanity delay setting, you should set that value appropriately prior to setting your NextRadio Alignment.
Alerts: Check the box and enter at least one email address that should receive an alert when TagStation stops receiving your audio events. The recipient(s) should be knowledgeable of your middleware and playout system, typically a station Engineer. Separate multiple email addresses with a comma.
