About us

DIGISPOT®II, the Media Content Management and Distribution System, is the result of many years of experience and knowledge in the broadcast industry and creative work by a team of university educated software specialists. The development began in 2000 by signing a contract of strategic partnership between Tract Company (Saint-Petersburg) and R.Barth KG Company (Hamburg).

The R.Barth KG Company was founded in 1970. In 1989 it introduced a new product in Germany – The DIGISPOT® The Media Content Management and Distribution System. It was the first network related solution, developed under MS DOS.

The Tract Company was founded in 1991 in order to develop PC-based hardware and software for audio recording and processing. Since 1993, the main activities of Tract became orientated to the development of software for the workflow in commercial and state radio and TV stations. Between 1997 and 1999, the first Windows-based broadcast automated play-out systems has been developed.

The DIGISPOT®II kernel and main modules development was done in 2001-2005. By 2006, DIGISPOT®II became the complete full-functional Radio Broadcast Automation and Content Management Software System.

By 2007, DIGISPOT®II had itself established already as the absolute leader in Russia by great number of successful installations. A year later the expanded team of creative specialists founded a subsidiary company Tract–Soft  for the software development, while the Tract Company  concentrated on system installations of radio stations and large broadcast institutional complexes, as well as development of special equipment and the technical infrastructure for broadcast facilities.

After a number of successful installations in Germany and other European countries in partnership with R.Barth KG, DIGISPOT System GmbH was established in 2010 as a new, standalone engineering company for the distribution and system installation of the DIGISPOT®II Radio and TV Broadcast Software System in Europe and all countries of the Western hemisphere, being responsible also for system support, technical service, user training and furthermore supporting the software concept engineering by reflecting user experiences and requirements.

In 2012, the development of the new DIGISPOT®III Media Content Management and Distribution System for Audio and Video has been started by DIGISPOT System GmbH Hamburg at Tract Soft St. Petersburg to provide a new generation of state-of-the-art software for the broadcast industry.

Nowadays the DIGISPOT®II software system installations are accounting for more than 1000 radio stations in Germany, Russia and other countries worldwide. The modular structure and versatile functionality of the system covers the whole range from small web-based radio stations to large system installations such as Voice of Russia that includes multiple ON-AIR play-out studios and more than 700 workstations, all connected to a powerful central database.
