Codec company Tieline has added native Livewire+ support to its Gateway and Gateway 4 codecs.

Tieline Gateway Livewire+ supportLivewire+ is widely used by broadcasters for discovery and advertisement when streaming real-time IP audio. Integrating native support for Livewire+ facilitates interfacing between Gateway and Gateway 4 codecs and Livewire AoIP networks. Previously, codecs could only connect to Livewire+ devices in AES67 compatibility mode.

‘Tieline always advocates for interoperability of equipment from different vendors of IP systems and products,’ says, Tieline VP of Sales APAC/EMEA, Charlie Gawley. ‘That’s why our Gateway platform includes native support for AES67, ST 2110-30, ST2022-7, AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05, Ember+, Ravenna, and now Livewire+. An optional WheatNet-IP card is also available and we plan to support Dante in coming months. This allows devices using different open standard and proprietary AoIP protocols to connect seamlessly.’

Tieline codecs specialise in streaming low latency, high-quality audio over the internet using a range of wired and wireless IP transports. The codecs are optimised for STLs, network audio distribution, and multiple remote broadcasts, and are often gateway devices in IP networks bridging between wide area network (WAN) nodes that may include the broadcast plant, other studios (inter-studio links), production facilities and live remote broadcast events. Interoperability between multiple AoIP protocols delivers greater flexibility when integrating IP audio streams into the broadcast plant from a range of sources.

New firmware supporting Livewire+ will be available in Q2 2022, and will be a free upgrade for existing customers. The Gateway and Gateway 4 codecs debut at the 2022 NAB Show.
