BMI, ASCAP Reveal Standardized Cue Sheet Template


Following the development of the joint venture RapidCue, BMI and ASCAP have announced the co-development of a new standardized cue sheet template that will allow both organizations to more quickly process music usage data from the film and television composers, songwriters and publishers each represents.

RapidCue was the first secure website through which TV, cable and film production companies could enter cue-sheet data. This improved template, which has been built based on the feedback from dozens of broadcasters, production companies, digital service providers and studios, further increases the efficiencies of RapidCue.

The standardized cue sheet enables data to be submitted once through a single point of entry to [email protected], instead of separately to each PRO. The data will then be automatically ingested into BMI and ASCAP’s respective databases. This means less work for those submitting the information and eliminates the need for the PROs to re-key cue sheets submitted in Excel, Word or via PDF, resulting in faster, more accurate and more cost-effective processing.
