Report-IT Live

Report-IT changes everything - will YOU be First to Report Live?

Report-IT Live has revolutionised newsgathering and performing live remotes to ensure you can break the story first! The multi award-winning Report-IT  turns your iPhone into a pocket-sized portable 15kHz live IP audio codec and ultra-slim high fidelity 20kHz audio recorder. 

  • Broadcast 15kHz live two-way interviews with the studio at the touch of a single button.
  • Use the 20kHz quality mic on all 3G/3GS/4 iPhones to prerecord interviews and then FTP these 20kHz audio files to the studio without a codec.
  • Prerecord interviews, trim them offline, build a user-friendly playlist of edited clips and insert them into your live cross with the studio later (sometimes called wrap-arounds)

At the touch of a button you can broadcast live IP audio over 3GIP or Wi-Fi from any remote location to a Tieline IP enabled codec in the studio. Perfect for a remote broadcast, live report or two-way interview, simply connect your earphones to the iPhone and hear studio comms and program in real-time while you are broadcasting.

    What do Producers think of Report-IT?


    --- Radionet Interviewing live with Report-IT

    In short - they love it! Report-IT delivers better quality reports and much more programming flexibility. It can be used for:

    • Live reports
    • Offline reporting with FTP capability
    • Recording voice spots remotely
    • Live or tape sync interviews with politicians and famous people

    We've been asked, "what if a live or pre-recorded interview has wireless network dropouts?" No problem - you can simply program Report-IT by default to record the talent's audio onto the iPhone while you are interviewing them. After the interview the talent can FTP the pristine 20 kHz recording at the touch of a single button for editing or repackaging. Now that's cool!

    Consider another scenario where no journalists or edit booths are available and you need to interview remotely located talent for breaking news, or you want to interview someone famous or important. With Report-IT Enterprise 100 Pack you can simply ask the remote talent to download the app onto their iPhone for free, enter a username and password set by your station engineer, hit connect and be interviewed live by the studio in seconds!

     

    What do Engineers think of Report-IT?


    --- Antonio Mendes

    Engineers particulary love Report-IT 10 Pack and Enterprise 100 Pack because they can program all connection settings for each user from the studio! The Enterprise Edition's unique and rock solid password security login via TieServer creates highly secure broadcast IP networks by never exposing IP addresses, ports and other IP infrastructure details to reporters and contributors.

    Questionable cell-phone audio quality is a thing of the past because all 3G/3GS/4 iPhones have an inbuilt 20kHz quality microphone, or you can attach a professional dynamic mic with the Mic Adapter if preferred. Studio engineers love the high fidelity 15kHz live program audio quality of Report-IT and it interfaces easily to deliver 15kHz mix-minus return program audio with IFB communications.

    Report-IT is also the first and only 15kHz quality live audio codec app with the ability to edit recordings, create playlists and copy and paste into other iPhone editing apps. All locally recorded reports are stored in high quality native digital format (WAV) delivering superb 20kHz quality primary or backup recordings that can be sent live via a studio codec or via FTP.

    Your beancounters will love it too! Report-IT Live delivers the most affordable professional wireless IP audio codec and recorder solution on the market today – so it's great for the capital expenditure bottom-line. You can even turn off the return audio feed from the studio in Report-IT and save on data costs if no studio return audio is required.

    Testimonials

    Here's a sample of what our customers have to say about Report-IT Live.

    Kevin Allen, Producer/Host, "Views from the Rough", USA


     

    "The iPhone mic has a studio quality response and I press just one button on Report-IT to connect to my studio and feed broadcast quality audio.  Report-IT also lets me record and edit interviews and then play back these selections as a wrap-around within my live reports.  I can also feed raw audio back to my FTP site for editing when I’m back in the studio."

    "For anyone who has tried to interview a celebrity at a moment’s notice, the advantages of this new technology are obvious.  I can capture comments and intriguing conversations that would be missed while setting up a traditional recorder.  Plus I’m not lugging ten pounds of equipment around 18 holes!"


    --- Kevin Allen with Report-IT

    Chris Larke, Broadcast Engineer, CHUM Radio Vancouver, Canada

    "Our experience has been amazing using Report-IT Live Enterprise Edition - it has revolutionized the way we approach live remote broadcasting. The initial configuration ended up being a breeze. Our setup time for remotes has been reduced immensely and our announcers love using a wireless live IP codec that is small enough to fit into your pocket!"

    "We use it live on-location to broadcast our afternoon show, as well as sports interviews and reporting. Our sports reporters often file via FTP and our producers can det these reports to air long before any other station!"

    Henrik Poulsen, Technical Manager, Radionet A/S in Denmark

    "Everything is very easy to program with Report-IT Live - from the codec IP address settings and FTP configuration, to the connection bit-rate and automatic upload of reports and much more. You set it once and forget it."

    "Today all our primetime radio hosts have an iPhone 4 with Report-IT Live Enterprise Edition installed and we are excited about how the app will assist us to deliver more efficient and faster news productions into the future."

    Antonio Mendes, Operations Supervisor, Radio FM O Dia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    "Tieline has created a revolutionary tool that will transform the way that journalists and reporters send their stories from the field. It's the ideal solution for broadcasting live events, especially high quality audio directly from football matches. With Report-IT we can increase our external reporting team and do more live interviews remote locations."

    Keith Evans - Technical Services Manager River 949 FM, Australia

    "Having successfully broadcast a full 4 hour remote broadcast from my iPhone all I can say is WOW! The on-air announcer could not get over how simple to use (30 second walkthrough). This is a whole new way to do remote broadcasting. No need for baggage or trucks. The quality is excellent. I could not recommend this app more highly Gold medal to Tieline."

    Malcolm Sully Chief Engineer Nova 93.7, Australia

    "Been using it all week for a very fluid promotion with great success. We have used a combination of live and FTP and will struggle to go back to traditional methods. Well thought out, very stable App and a great tool to have in the arsenal."
