Livewire Digital at IBC2018

Livewire Digital launch SilverBlade II at IBC. The new solution provides a highly resilient Internet connection for broadcasters to stream live video or deliver file based content from cameras, laptops and mobiles.

Livewire Digital introduce SilverBlade II on its IBC stand, a lightweight small-footprint solution that seamlessly bonds cellular and Wi-Fi services to provide a highly resilient internet connection for broadcast professionals to deliver low latency live and file based media from the field. SilverBlade II agile reporters can ‘go live’ rapidly and provide instant breaking news stories with compelling content from anywhere in the world to traditional TV consumers and mobile millennials. Highly cost-effective, broadcasters pay a one-off purchase fee for SilverBlade II and use their own SIM cards – side stepping the ‘per-use’ fees charged by Livewire’s competitors.

SilverBlade II features Livewire Digital’s Razorlink technology which aggregates and bonds internet bandwidth across 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, DSL cellular networks and satellite to significantly enhance data transfer rates for fast delivery of video content.  Connection dropouts are managed seamlessly by RazorLink which automatically migrates to alternative networks and optomizes the connection so users can make use of all the available bandwidth.

Razorlink delivers on the 5G aspiration for seamless connectivity making use of current and next generation networks and enables reporters to deliver content via their own applications and infrastructure unlike competitive products which channel client content via proprietary software and eco systems.
