Rundown Variance

This field shows the rundown variance between the scheduled and actual start time for each Story.

rundown_variance_time

If there is no time variance between the scheduled and actual start time of the currently played item, this clock displays the zero value.

rundown_variance_time_minus

If the currently played item has been sent to air before the scheduled time and is going to end up earlier than planned, the variance time is shown with a minus sign.

rundown_variance_time_plus

If the currently played item has been sent to air later than the scheduled time and is going to end up later than planned, the variance time is shown with a plus sign.

Note
Rundown variance is not displayed when its value exceeds 1 hour; "--:--" is displayed instead.
