Flexible and innovative workflows have never been so essential for editorial journalists and producers as they are today. As a result of rapid digitisation in the media environment, the ingredients of storytelling must now be researched, planned and processed more efficiently than ever, to cover not only TV and radio, but also social media and online channels. While functionality demands are very much unique to each broadcaster—whether small, medium or enterprise—most rely on standard applications for their news and radio programs.

To meet these requirements, CGI's Media Solutions (formerly SCISYS Media Solutions) offers market-leading applications to create turn-key capabilities: OpenMedia for editorial journalistic news workflow, dira! for radio production and playout, and Viura for intelligent camera control in radio studios.

Our innovative OpenMedia newsroom system is used worldwide as a standard tool for cross-media research, planning and creation of daily news, magazines and sports publications.
