Well-formed UICs

The Universal Instrumentation Code or UIC will soon play a more important role in your Zinfonia presence.

The UIC is an industry-supported standard to represent instrumental parts using hierarchical numeric system to make it easier to display, share and search performing materials (you can find more about the UIC here: https://uic.btmi.au/).

Why are UICs important?

Probably the most obvious benefit for having UICs on all of your titles is to provide your customers as part of the order process with the precise breakdown of the individual parts they are requesting (in their own language), and are prompted only to input the desired quantities on those items which require this information (like scores, vocal and choral materials and string forces).

UICs are also being used increasingly to share information between different systems. The system was originally created by us to help digital distribution systems connect the performer with the part they need to play, but is now used to move large amounts of information effortlessly between companies and platforms.

Very soon we will be introducing two new features on Zinfonia, both of which depend on the availability of well-formed UICs on your titles. The first new feature is advanced searching of Zinfonia databases based on the instrumentation, to not only locate works of specific groups of players (both small and large) but also to locate works with the same or similar forces.

The second feature is the concept of Search Tags that give Zinfonia users new ways to locate the pieces they are looking for. At the moment, if you know the composer or title, Zinfonia searches are easy, but if you are looking for something based on genre, category or instrumentation then these Zinfonia Search Tags will be very useful to reveal new programming opportunities. Publishers will have the facility to maintain their own tags, but those which are specific to the instrumentation (like Music for Orchestra, or Violin Solo and Orchestra) will be automatically applied based on the UIC, so having these in place before that feature is available will help make your catalogue more visible. More on these features soon.

How to get UICs in Zinfonia

For users that use HLMSW or Chordata, the process is automatic – we do though STRONGLY recommend all HLMSW users take the time to convert any titles that have not yet been converted to UICs into this format. When HLMSW is retired in a few years, we will need to have consistent data, and so UICs across all works, sets and transactions will need to be in place. To make this transition easier, we have created a bunch of utilities to help you work though this process – please contact us to get a personal tour of these.

For non-HLMSW/Chordata users, the new UIC editor is available in the Edit Work screen accessed by clicking on the EDIT button in InCopyright.

You can use the UIC Toolbox to create complete UICs, or you can copy and paste UICS from existing titles in Zinfonia using the options available. We are also creating mass upload tools if you can support the UIC on your existing systems (please ask us for more information).

What is a Well-Formed UIC?

The UIC has a number of important principles that, when followed, will produce the best results:

  • The Instrument defined in Position 0 MUST be unique in a set of parts (this instrument also defines the sort order of the elements). You can use the Descriptor or Number designators to distinguish between similar instruments.
  • When other instruments are included on the same line (to indicate doubling or shared parts) it is important to include the DOUBLING flag when required so that the UIC knows that the same player plays all instruments.
  • Keep all of your instruments in logical groups within the UIC using the DOMAIN designator. For example if you have a violin concerto, the solo violin part should be attached to the [SOLO] domain so that it is kept separate from the rest of the instruments. The Domain can be omitted if all instruments are part of the same group.
  • For parts where there is a one-to-one relationship with the players (like winds, brass and percussion in an orchestral context) , make sure you include a Quantity value as part of the UIC. For items with non-specific quantities like scores, vocal & choral material and string forces, no quantity should be entered so that users are required to nominate the number of copies they require when ordering.
  • While the UIC is available in 8 languages, we recommend managing your UIC listings in English because this is the only version that every instrument is guaranteed unique. If you do not like any of the UIC terms or transactions, on HLMSW and Chordata you can create your own dictionaries so that that it is displayed the way you prefer.

Don’t forget to visit the UIC Toolbox on InCopyright to get a better understanding of the system and to see a demonstration of some of the power behind this versatile system.

Auto-Process HLMSW Messages

With HLMSW v8.02 Build 0.18 we introduce a regularly requested feature to automatically marked as processed transactions in the HLMSW queue which have been answered in In©.

Zinfonia/In© Messaging is Efficient

The Zinfonia/In© messaging facility is the best way to communicate with your customers. Any message sent this way is delivered immediately, and if the customer has the desktop notification feature enabled, they will be notified in real-time. From In© you can include attachments and links that often trigger over-aggressive email spam filters that are common in our age. Every communication is logged and visible to all which makes team communications much easier to manage.

Answer messages on In©

A good percentage of new requests require more information from the customer before they can be quoted or allocated stock, and we recommend you use In© to maintain your message queue because it is easier to see at a glance which items are waiting for a response from you

Messages with a non-white background usually require some kind of interaction with you. This may be a message the customer has sent (indicated by the Unread Message counter) or it may be informational like a Quote has been accepted and/or paid. If you have transactions which do not require a response but are non-white in your list, I recommend you Archive them so that your list remains easy to view.

You can also use the new All Unanswered Status option to view just unanswered requests

The change we have introduced with the most recent HLMSW release, is that when you answer a request in In©, the system will automatically mark it as done and hide it from the HLMSW Zinfonia messages queue. This may not happen in real time because the queue is only updated at semi-regularly intervals, but you can always force a refresh of the queue by selecting the REFRESH button in HLMSW.

In©/HLMSW Best Practice

To manage your HLMSW and In© systems we recommend you use them together in this way:

  • Make sure that the Auto Archive orders option is selected in the In© Authority (this will automatically archive any Zinfonia transaction that have had no activity for a while or the performance has passed or quote expired). It is important to remember that if there is any activity on an Archived transaction the Archive flag will be removed, and you can continue to search any Archived transaction with the Show Archive button set on the In© Orders screen
  • Make sure the Manual Order Release option is set on BOTH Zinfonia and HLMSW. This will stop any order from appearing the HLMSW queue until you are ready to process it or the customer accepts and/or pays. You can make any transaction appear on HLMSW by using the RELEASE button in In©. Even without this setting, all orders are still being sent to HLMSW and so can be displayed by entering the Zinfonia ID (they are just not displayed in the queue). Contact us to help set up this option.
  • Triage any incoming request (with a non-white background) and either:
    a) Use the messages facility to ask or answer question posed by the customer
    b) Issue a Quote
    c) Release the transaction so it can be managed in HLMSW
  • d) Archive the transaction to remove it from the live queue

In© Account Tariffs, Status & Notes

Today we launched some new features on InCopyright to provide publishers and distributors with tools to make it easier for you to interact with your Zinfonia customers by having the option to assign Authority-wide notes to your anyone ordering through Zinfonia.

Tariffs

Users with Admin permissions can click on the Authority menu option to display a new Tariff card to allow you to create categories that can be assigned to your customers and works to assist in the calculation of fees and charges.

There is no limit to the number of Tariffs you can enter, and they are designed to link directly to online resources to assist in the calculation of fees, both for in-house use and also optionally for public access as well.

The system makes it easy to manage multiple currencies and annual changes in rates.

Account Status, Tariff and Notes

Every order now has a redesigned Customer card which give you quick access to the last 5 orders and well as a new system for users with Admin or Quote permissions to assign a status (Standard/Priority/Alert/STOPPED), a tariff and free-text notes which are visible to EVERYONE in your Authority (but not visible to your clients in Zinfonia). The same information is also displayed on quotes, along with a link to your online resource for fee calculation.

Want to know more? Check out the Video

We have created the first of what we expect to be a growing library of short videos to help explain how to use new and existing features on InCopyright as they happen.

      Zinfonia 2.0 Release

      We are excited to announce that the launch of the new generation of Zinfonia, in© and related tools has been set for the weekend of January 13-14, 2024.

      Please note that Zinfonia will not be available at this time

      for Zinfonia users

      The new system will be very familiar as it builds on technology that made Zinfonia such a success, but provides a simpler interface which is compatible with all modern devices.

      Existing Zinfonia users will be required to enter a new password (with our new enhanced security protocols), but so long as you use the same email address you use now, ALL of your past order history will be available.

      If you use the Zinfonia Groups feature, you will need to re-join your nominated group the first time you log in (and this can be done by selecting the Group from the log in options in the top-right corner).

      There are many new features which we will highlight throughout the year, but one I would like to draw your attention to is the addition of desktop notifications, when enabled, will give you immediate feedback whenever the state of a Zinfonia request changes.

      for Zinfonia Connect Publishers

      Zinfonia Connect publishers will have a new set of tools located at our sister site incopyright.com to assist you in the management of your Zinfonia presence. This will be available in the weeks leading up to the launch, and we will send you more information closer to the time.

      Some patience required

      During the changeover period, there will be times when the system is not available, but we hope to keep this to a minimum. As this is a major upgrade with almost every facet of the system re-written, we anticipate there will be some unforeseen issues that we will endeavour to resolve as quickly as possible to avoid any disruption.

      As always, if you need help or have any questions about the new release, please contact us at help@zinfonia.com
