dira! Product Suite

In radio journalism, the dira! product family covers the entire production workflow required for media management.

Far from being over, the digital revolution in broadcasting has just entered its second phase. Where the first phase was characterized by the core material flow, the second phase is dominated by the transition to a unified working environment where users can, regardless of the original vendor of technology, access all needed applications in one place.

The core processes of media management, content creation and playout are the domain of the dira! product line. Originally derived from “digital radio”, dira! today means much more than radio solutions. It is a direct, intelligent, reliable and adaptable suite of television, radio, newsroom and new media production and playout applications supporting the core workflows that any broadcaster needs covered by a proven digital system.

The dira! Product Suite

The dira! product family covers the entire production workflow required for media management in radio journalism: From broadcast production and the exchange of material and programs, through broadcast scheduling, to actual onair playout, post production and archiving.

Playout

Optimised for self-operation workflows, the modern playout and automation software dira! Onair Player offers an built-in crossfade editor and voice-track editor, jingle management tools, an integrated content browser, features such as timescaling and loops on the fly and much more – all with an network independet emergency operation.

dira! Cartplayer represents an application for jingle (trailers, sweepers, beds, tracks, etc.) management and playout of these audio items. It combines the simple operation of traditional jingle machines and the advantages of a software-based solution. The Cartplayer software can be operated via GPIs from the mixing desk, via touch-screen, via mouse/keyboard or hardware controller.

Content Management

The heart piece of any system enabling media production is an application to manage, browse and access that content – in any dira! installation, this application is called dira! Highlander.
