How does Report-IT Live work?

Broadcasting live from your iPhone is a one button connection to the Tieline codec in the studio.

For the studio you need an IP enabled Tieline Bridge-It or a Commander G3 Field codec or a Commander G3 Studio codec in the studio (the receive end of your IP connection). If you have one already then contact support@tieline.com for the latest firmware version.

To record and store audio reports for later transmission or FTP file transfer, choose “Record a report” and hit the record button. Your audio will be stored in a WAV format. Choose from WAV or AAC LC formats for FTP file transfer. Statistics like time and file size are provided.

If you have a Tieline codec but need to enable it for IP, visit http:\\tiestore.tieline.com right now to buy it or visit tieline.com for a complete list of dealers. To learn more about Tieline codecs visit www.tieline.com.
