Codec maker Tieline has added native Livewire+ support to its Gateway and Gateway 4 codecs.
“Livewire+ is widely used by many broadcasters for discovery and advertisement when streaming real-time IP audio. Integrating native support for Livewire+ facilitates interfacing easily between Gateway and Gateway 4 codecs and Livewire AoIP networks,” Tieline said in its announcement.
“Previously the codecs could only connect to Livewire+ devices in AES67 compatibility mode.”
Charlie Gawley, who oversees sales for the APAC/EMEA regions, said the company advocates for interoperability of equipment from vendors of IP systems and products.
“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.”
Firmware supporting Livewire+ will be available in Q2 as a free upgrade for existing users.
Gateway and Gateway 4 both were introduced since the start of the the pandemic, so the upcoming convention will mark their NAB Show debut. Tieline will be in booth C1707.
