Tips For Interpreting Media Data For Advertising

Tips For Interpreting Media Data For Advertising

In order for your company’s products and services to be best placed when advertising on a radio station, there are certain things you need to look out for. Spending the advertising budget wisely is a hot topic for managers attending management courses. Radio advertising is still an effective way of promoting, however being aware of how to interpret the numbers when examining a radio station’s media data is a must. High values for the following categories: previous day’s audience, regular listeners and station’s rating are found on successful stations. This article gives you the opportunity to learn skills which will help you to look out for in these survey results, what analyses you should ask for and what can be read between the lines.

Radio stations that want to sell advertising time usually publish their media data. The results of listener surveys by study groups for media analysis are generally accepted European standard. These set out, among other things, three important figures relating to data about the station’s audience. Category A is known as the total audience, and relates to those who listened to the station in the last 2 weeks. Category B is the number of people who tuned in to the previous day’s broadcasting and Category C data refers to the number of regular listeners, that is those who tuned in on at least four out of seven days of the week. Category D is a measure of popularity.

A high value for category A is no indication of a station’s success. This figure often conceals occasional listeners who are hopping between stations or former regular listeners who are tuning in to their erstwhile favourite station for a change.

In fact, successful stations boast high figures for the number of listeners for the previous day, for regular listeners and for the most popular station.

If earlier studies have been done, ask for the comparative data: constant values for category A and decreasing figures for category B, category C and category D (popularity rating) are characteristics of a station in decline. Since the media data is already a few weeks old, this trend could have intensified.

Compare the stations in your region and do not be content if you find equal scores for Category B. When the duration of listening is a factor ask for the net hourly rating,. The more popular the station, the longer it remains switched on (resulting in a high net hourly coverage). As a rule, this value also decides the price per second. Request charts which show each separate hour of broadcasting, including the average coverage, over the course of the day. It important to analyse the data as taught in good management courses.

If you are in a position to choose between several equally competitive stations, give yourself an idea of the relative success of each station at different times of the day. For each hour add together the stations’ coverage and work out the percentage share for each station.

Depending on the type of listener you are after determines the optimum placement of your advertising. Ask for analyses of this kind to be broken down by age group, educational level and sex. A certain presenter’s programme may well succeed in reaching two thirds of all women listening to the radio, but it may be broadcast at a time of day when three-quarters of all listeners are men. This programme is losing out on coverage in spite of this presenter’s success. However, if your advertising is aimed primarily at women, this programme may – at relatively favourable prices per second – be just the place where you should advertise.

It is important to ask for analyses that cover the activities of the entire broadcasting day, including the listener’s activity at the time – if possible accurate to within 15 minutes. In this way you can achieve an optimum placement for your advertising. There are various sales, marketing and management courses which can also help you to develop a good understanding of effective marketing.

Sending data from Combo box to server asynchronously

Sending data from Combo box to server asynchronously

In this article, we will learn to send the options selected in the Combo box to the server asynchronously i.e. through AJAX. Through AJAX, we don’t have to select Submit button in the form to get response from the server instead, we get the response asynchronously (immediately) on selecting an option from the combo. For this article, we will make three files by namely: comboajax.php, comboajax.js and showcat.php :

comboajax.php – PHP script that will display a combo box
comboajax.js – JavaScript file that creates XMLHttpRequest object to send request to the server asynchronously
showcat.php – Server side PHP script to display the response

The coding of comboajax.php is as under :


Above program displays a combo box of name “Category” with three items : Camera, Mobile and Book displayed in it. If any change takes place, that is if any option is selected from this combo box, a method itemdisplay() will be invoked and the selected option is passed to it as argument. Also an element is defined with id : info for displaying the server response

The coding of comboajax.js is as under:


function makeRequestObject(){

var xmlhttp=false;

try {

xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject(‘Msxml2.XMLHTTP’);

} catch (e) {

try {

xmlhttp = new


} catch (E) {

xmlhttp = false;



if (!xmlhttp && typeof XMLHttpRequest!=’undefined’) {

xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();


return xmlhttp;



function itemdisplay(cat)


var xmlhttp=makeRequestObject();‘GET’, ‘showcat.php?&Category;=’+cat, true);

xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() {

if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status == 200) {

var content = xmlhttp.responseText;

if( content ){

document.getElementById(‘info’)[removed] = content;







Above program makes an XMLHttpRequest object and places request to the server (by GET method) for the file showcat.php, sending the category of product selected by the user (from the combo box) to it. This category is retrieved in showcat.php file using $_GET array.

Since an asynchronous request is made to the server, the state of the request and the response to the request is checked. If the value of readyState property becomes 4 (meaning the request is complete) and the value of the status of the HTTP Request is 200 (which means there is no error), the response is then retrieved from the response stream and is assigned to variable : content which is then applied to the innerHTML property (property  used to display results) of the element with id : “info” . It is the same

element with id : “info” we have defined in web page for displaying server response. Hence, the response retrieved from the server is displayed at the place of element : “info”.

Note the response generated by the server is based on the execution of the file : showcat.php. Lets analyze what it returns


echo “Category selected is : ” . $_GET[‘Category’] ;


Above file returns the text : “Category selected is ” and the category name selected by the user. The category selected by the user is passed while making the XMLHttpRequest for the file showcat.php in the following command :‘GET’, ‘showcat.php?&Category;=’+cat, true);

The output of the program comboajax.php may appear as shown in below given figure.

Combo Box displaying various options

The moment, we select an item from the combo box, the message displaying the selected option appears on the screen as shown in below given figure.

The selected items is displayed on the screen

What is a good design to develop a program that can read data from 3 different servers then broadcast via udp?

Question by Licursi: What is a good design to develop a program that can read data from 3 different servers then broadcast via udp?
I have to develop a program that will connect to three different servers that will be streaming data at certain intervals. I then need to put all that data together and broadcast it out via UDP.

I don’t need syntax, I am looking for ideas on how to design this. Please be descriptive. (ie. Number of threads to use and what each is used for)

Thanks in advance!

Best answer:

Answer by plavacek
I think the key here is how to share the memory space between the three pullers and the one broadcaster. The easiest answer to that is with a database. Depending on your data volume needs, you could go with almost anything – Berkley, the free version of DB2, …
Here’s my rough design – I’d need to know your language to go any further.

DB Design
Table Feed: feed id, feed timestamp, feed contents,
Table Broadcast: broadcast id (autonumber), broadcast contents, broadcast start timestamp

Thread 1: Scheduler daemon
Priority: Highest
Responsibilities: Spawn new Feed threads and Broadcast threads at appropriate intervals.

Thread 2: Publisher
Priority: Normal
-Query Broadcast table for last start timestamp
-Query Feed table for feed contents since last broadcast
-Assemble broadcast
-Update Broadcast table
-Send UDP

Thread 3…n: Feeder
Priority: Normal
-Connect to server
-Rip streaming data
-Commit to Feed table

So my Feeder and Publisher threads are single-use – they exist for one operation. The scheduler makes a fresh one every interval. This way, if a Feed interval comes up before the last one is done, or likewise a Publish, Scheduler can either start a new one to handle it or not, depending on your needs.

Tips for Recovering Data On Failed RAID 5 Arrays

Tips for Recovering Data On Failed RAID 5 Arrays

RAID 5 arrays are the most widely used application because they are cost-effective and present a degree of fault tolerance. These technical devices should be dealt with care and regular maintenance. Many IT companies are using RAID applications. Dallas is home to many established and upcoming IT companies. RAID 5 failures and hard disk crash can cause serious damages to the information and operational flow of a company. Fortunately, there are many Dallas data recovery & IT solutions companies present to help your system recover data efficiently and quickly.

RAID 5 arrays malfunction for several reasons; some of them are discussed below:

Bad sectors and corrupt data: Damaged sectors on any disks present in the array are one of the most common reasons for a RAID 5 malfunction. Bad disks can cause the array to go offline. Data in the RAID 5 might also get corrupted due to a virus, errors caused by users, overwriting of stored files, and scratches on the face of disk trays.
Debased RAID 5 and deleted files: Loss or damage of any member disks can degrade RAID 5, resulting in dip in performance. Loss of disk can also take away fault tolerance of the RAID 5. You should not operate on degraded or damaged RAID 5 as it can affect entire array negatively. Data also might get deleted accidentally by a user. In rare cases, dissatisfied employee can also deliberately remove data. Dallas data recovery firms are experienced in recovering your data in a fast turnaround time.
Missing partitions and controller failure: Missing or omitted partitions and controller failure are two major reasons for data loss and misplacement. A corrupt partition table can result in whole partition to be unstable. In these scenarios, data recovery is necessary. Consult a Dallas data recovery firm to get the best solution in recovering your data by using their expertise and software.
Successful data recovery: In the case of serious RAID 5 failure, expert assistance is recommended. Minor mistakes can overwrite the parity data, written, and coded for member disks. Parity data is vital tool to recover your data. It is important to power off RAID server urgently in case of data loss to prevent further writes. Note down the responsible events. Make proper labels while removing member disks, to ensure a proper disk order. This step is particularly important in case of large member disks.

You should highly consider assistance from an IT solutions firm who has proven expertise in data recovery and backup solutions. For years, has provided quality IT services in the Dallas area. These services include data recovery, back up services, and IT solutions at competitive rates.
