Does your on-air talent need to work remotely?
With the COVID-19 situation forcing social distancing strategies upon us all, broadcasters require contingency plans to allow station talent to stay safe and go live on-air remotely. It is more important than ever to implement agile remote broadcast solutions and Tieline has a range of solutions to suit every budget.
The ViA Codec for Fully Optioned Remotes from Home…
The ViA remote codec allows a broadcaster at home to stream live audio, record interviews, view and manage recordings, create playlists of local and imported files and even produce podcasts that can be sent via FTP directly from the unit. The ViA is capable of mono, stereo, dual mono, triple mono as well as stereo plus mono connections. This provides great flexibility and the ability to incorporate guests into live broadcasts using Tieline’s Report-IT app or other IP codecs.

The ViA is often paired with a Merlin or Merlin PLUS rack mount codec at the studio. Merlin PLUS supports up to 6 simultaneous connections with any combination of IP codecs or Report-IT app user connections. For more details see https://tieline.com/merlin-plus/
Affordable Solutions: Go Live Remotely with Report-IT
If you own codecs already, one of the simplest and most affordable ways to scale up your ability to work from home is with the Report-IT Enterprise app. Report-IT is free for users to download and turns any smartphone into a pocket-sized IP codec that is very simple to use.

- Perfect for remote broadcasts, live reports or two-way interviews, simply connect earphones to a phone and hear studio communications and program audio in real-time while broadcasting.
- It’s affordable and scalable to suit the specific needs of small, medium or large organizations.
You can even attach a professional mic to a phone using a compatible third-party microphone adapter cable!
