    1. A musical fanfare or overture intended to carry a presenter offstage. Often heard during award shows when a speech runs long--the music is the cue to end the speech and get offstage.

    2. Also as "playoff": In America, the ending of a song after the singing is finished. The proper term for the opposite of an Intro.
    In Great Britain and other English speaking countries the term Playout is used interchangeably with Playoff. See also Outro.
