Can I add a Data Export to my station's configuration so that the Injector sends the station's Now Playing Data to other sources?

Yes.  Data Exports to external sources are inherent in the design and functionality of the Injector.  Stations can configure up to three (3) data exports.  To do so, access the Advanced menu > Stations > Edit/Delete Station.  Highlight the specific station in question and click Edit.  Then about  1/2 way down the screen, look for the Injector Record Data.  Click the link for Edit Primary Injector Settings.  At the very bottom of the screen there is a Now Playing Message text box - this is where you can configure any needed data exports.

Simply enter the needed export into the box and click SAVE at the bottom of the screen. 

NOTE: If a data export already exists, then, unless you need to remove the existing one, the new export will need to be appended to the end of the current string.  All subsequent exports MUST be delimited with a | (pipe) character.

A single data export should look like this:
EXPORTSAMPLE1.com/split_metadata?artist=[artist]&title=[title]&stationid=[stationid]&album=[album]&cat=[cat]&buf=[buf]&iname=[iname]&dur=[dur]&img=[img]&cb=[cb]

Two data exports should look like this:
EXPORTSAMPLE18/split_metadata?artist=[artist]&title=[title]&stationid=[stationid]&album=[album]&cat=[cat]&buf=[buf]&iname=[iname]&dur=[dur]&img=[img]&cb=[cb]|EXPORTSAMPLE2/pub/CallNowPlayingService.ashx?artist=[artist]&title=[title]&stationid=[stationid]&iname=[iname]&cb=[cb]

While any data export can be set-up, and there are really an unlimited number of possibilities, there are four commonly needed / requested Data Exports.  See the attachment for those four (4) common strings.

Please contact our support department through the link at the top of the screen should you have any questions whatsoever.
