Radio journalists get best of dira! and LUCI

The dira! system for media management, content creation and playout of radio content is now integrated with the LUCI platform for audio and video broadcasting over IP.

This means field reporters can send recordings and metadata from any LUCI application direct to the dira! Upload System which transfers the material into the station’s production and playout system.

Oliver Alsbach, leading software architect and head of Research & Development at SCISYS which develops dira!, explains: “Our system comprises modern web clients and a mobile app to transfer multimedia material from anywhere to the stations’ production system. It is fast, easy and secure and simply meets the needs of mobile radio professionals. With the new integration, users will be able not only to send recordings from LUCI Live to our Upload App, but also from any LUCI application to our Upload Server from which the material is forwarded directly into the station’s content management system.”

SCISYS claims that over 8000 journalists, editors, content creators and technical specialists work daily with dira!.

LUCI Live from Netherlands-based development company Technica Del Arte, allows reporters worldwide to stream live audio to and from the studio from multiple platforms like iOS, Linux, Android, Mac and Windows. It offers two-way streaming and is compatible with many different types of professional IP-codecs. It is also capable of playing pre-recorded material while broadcasting live. In December 2014 Technica Del Arte added the live video stream feature to the LUCI Live software for iOS.
