Blue Lucy is a software development leader in the field of media production and operations. The software capability is supported by business consulting and programme implementation to ensure the realisation of business benefits in all projects.
We produce business orientated software tools for content asset management, workflow orchestration and video processing; enabling broadcasters and content owners / producers to confidently deploy software systems which meet the business drivers of today, and tomorrow. The highly innovative software tools are enablers for broadcast operators and media companies to exploit and monetise content for multi-platform delivery.
Our software represents a fundamental shift in the provision of technology for video production and offers a step change in flexibility and cost model for content owners and media operators.
We have a well-founded understanding of the business of production, broadcasting & content publishing as well as an appreciation that software systems support, not dictate, business and operations. We take a business centric view and know that software provision without an operational business case, without rounded design and integration rarely realises the forecast benefits. We approach projects by first helping businesses understand the vision, then manage the entire realisation process from software build to transition to operational service. The Blue Lucy approach is a complete approach with demonstrable success in delivery.
The Blue Lucy management team has a solid and broad range of experience, including low level software development for video and audio processing but also in broadcast operations as well as project and executive management.
Blue Lucy is privately held, free from commercial debt, venture capital and has been profitable since incorporation. The company is based in south west London, operating internationally through global regional partners and directly to end-customers.
