How to connect LUCI software to LUCI STUDIO

In most cases LUCI STUDIO is running on the internal network and reporters in the field will be using any type of LUCI Reporter app on their phone, tablet, PC or Mac. They will need the studio’s static IP-address to stream to via the public internet. Therefore, port forwarding is needed to keep unwanted traffic off networks and only allow access from the LUCI reporter apps.


RTP Connection Wizard LUCI STUDIO 5

Set up a new station when using the RTP protocol in the latest LUCI STUDIO version with our newest RTP Connection Wizard. The Wizard helps you setting up step by step your new station that uses the RTP Audio protocol for your Audio over IP connections. As easy as sliced bread.


Connection Event Graphics in LUCI STUDIO 5

To be able to determine the cause and frequency of particular connection faults like dropped packets, or jitter buffer overruns, we have added a history event graph called Connection Event Graph ( CEG ) . Every connection parameter in the Info screen can now display a graph over time. It also lets you Log these values to a comma separated file (.csv) with timestamp for later analysis.


Create your own phone book

Create a phone book in order to provide your connection details to your reporters. And if you have more stations (i.e. streams) to connect to, it makes it even easier if a proper phone book is available that is simple to correct by you and an easy download and insert for them. Check out the example and a reference CSV formatted phone book on our support page.


Extra Streams plugin, setup LUCI STUDIO as a multi-channel server

It is possible to start LUCI STUDIO several times simultaneously on the same PC with different settings. Then there are multiple so-called ‘instances’ of LUCI STUDIO needed. You can receive up to 64 streams. It is also possible to have each instance stream up to eight sample-accurate audio channels. Make sure you have a multi-channel audio plugin when used this way.


EMBER+ plugin for LUCI STUDIO

LUCI Studio live audio over IP streaming software with Ember+ plugin icon
Ember+ is a lightweight remote- control protocol developed by Lawo and L-S-B Broadcast Technologies. It was published as an open standard, and various companies have implemented Ember+ in their products since. So have we. The Ember+ remote control integration will only work with a separate program for LUCI STUDIO instances that have the Ember+ plugin activated. This way you can monitor all LUCI instances remotely and connect, accept or disconnect incoming streams.


Surround & Multi-Channel plugin for LUCI STUDIO

LUCI STUDIO can simultaneously stream up to eight sample-accurate audio channels per instance, bidirectional. Supported codecs are Linear 24 bit and 24 bit ULCC. This can be used to distribute multichannel live recordings from point to point in high quality. To setup LUCI STUDIO with a Multichannel stream you need to add and activate the Surround & Multichannel Plugin.


Video plugin for LUCI STUDIO

LUCI STUDIO can be set as a video server, enabling it to receive video from LUCI LIVE showing it in a separate video preview screen and / or to a selected SDI video output. The currently supported format is H264 with bitrates up to 4Mbps. The video can be recorded separately in an mp4 file and combined with the separately recorded audio file with standard video editing software or with our FTP function. Please Note: For receiving video your CPU needs to have an inbuilt HD Intel® Graphics GPU. To setup LUCI STUDIO as a video server you need to add and activate the Video Plugin to your license.
