Luci Global is a cloud-based version of Technica’s Luci Live multiplatform IP audio reportage software. The Luci Global is an app that enables a community of reporters, radio guests and co-hosts to contribute to broadcasts of any station listed in the Luci Global directory, via 4G or Wi-Fi. The app is available for free on the iTunes App Store; upcoming versions will be available on Androids.
Backbone Co-Host is a cloud-based radio backhaul and production service for the radio station that manages incoming feeds using Apple Mac-based producer/screener software.
