Live Video & Audio Over IP Networks
with Paul Cintolo, COMREX

Comrex LiveShot™ delivers live video and audio over a range of IP networks. LiveShot is used by TV stations and networks to deliver high quality, low latency video from anywhere Internet access is available, ideal for ENG. LiveShot leverages the success of Comrex ACCESS audio IP codecs and uses the same technology to smooth out the "bumps" on the public Internet to allow broadcast-quality live video and audio streaming. LiveShot is especially optimized to perform well on challenging IP networks like 3G, 4G and satellite-based links.

Comrex has designed and manufactured broadcast equipment since its incorporation in 1961. Since then, Comrex has consistently developed the most innovative technology to address the specific needs of broadcasters, and create products that enable broadcasters to produce live, local, imaginative remote programming. Comrex strives to provide a simple answer to a universal broadcast need - the transportation of high-quality media to the studio from virtually anywhere, economically, at a moment's notice. As methods of audio and video transportation evolve, Comrex works to develop technology that will allow broadcasters to easily achieve creative and entertaining programming, from diverse and unique locations
