PUC-Rio is developing software for receiving, identifying and monitoring audio signals for use in the work conducted by ECAD (Central Bureau for Collection and Distribution). The scope of the project includes training and capacity building for personnel nominated by the entity.

The system, called ECAD.Tec CIA Radio, is already being used in many state capitals, and was created to automate the reception, recording and identification of music broadcast by Brazilian radio stations. It is the first system to be developed by a totally Latin American company for music copyright management, and its intellectual property is owned by ECAD.

Undergraduates take part in research activities alongside graduate students, professors, researchers and staff. These activities are paid for by grants from funding agencies or else through projects with companies undertaken in different laboratories.
