In order to identify what musical works are performed on both broadcast and cable television, ASCAP uses cue sheets provided to us by the program producers or broadcasters combined with computer based program schedules, network or station logs, and tapes of actual broadcasts which are then analyzed by ASCAP's music experts. Cue sheets list detailed information on all of the composers, writers and publishers who have music in a show, and the type of music usage. Types of music usage include feature performances, background , themes, etc. We must have a cue sheet on file in order to make payment. Among ASCAP's many technological innovations was the development of cue sheet software called ASCAP EZQ, which greatly facilitated the process of preparing cue sheets and identifying performances of our members' works. ASCAP EZQ evolved into the industry standard RapidCue, used by most of the major studios and program producers today.
