Livewire Digital will unveil a new real-time broadcast transmission system for remote and hostile locations and its latest range of waterproof cameras at IBC.

M-Link X is especially suited for people working in remote and hostile locations. It allows news reporters in the field to transmit news directly to radio, web and TV newsrooms. It is available for Mac OSX.

Fully compatible with the existing M-Link Exchange receiver, M-Link X gives broadcasters a choice of platforms for their field equipment. They are able to deliver live news flashes, rushes or fully edited pieces to newsrooms.

Livewire Digital's M-Link Voyager and IP-Reporter H.264 AVC are currently being used by major broadcasters including Reuters.

Also being showcased at IBC will be a new range of waterproof HD cameras and microphones that have been specially designed by Livewire Digital Ltd to withstand the rigors of the Volvo Ocean Race.

In that example, an on-board media specialist, responsible for recording, editing and delivering the footage, can control the range of cameras and microphones either from a laptop or via the Media Desk HD console. Camera control is also possible remotely via a wireless link.

The equipment being exhibited at IBC includes HD roll-compensated day/night cameras and 1080i HD PTZ cameras.

Livewire Digital makes video store & forward, video streaming, satellite news gathering, system integrated and bespoke communications products and custom hardware and software.
