Why do Program Directors Love Report-IT?

  --- Radionet Interviewing live with Report-IT

Report-IT delivers better quality reports and much more programming flexibility. It can be used for:

  • Live reports
  • Offline reporting with file sharing 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 phone while you are interviewing them. After the interview the talent can send 20 kHz quality recordings to the studio 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 you can simply ask the remote talent to download the app onto their smartphone for free, enter a username and password set by your station engineer, hit connect and be interviewed live by the studio in seconds!

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

   

"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 phone 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 phone 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."
