LiveShot Hub

When your wireless coverage may not be ideal…

While the LiveShot Video IP Codec is designed to operate well when connected to the Internet via one or two 4G modems, a 4G network is not always available. When faced with a challenging 3G-only environment, the new LiveShot Hub will provide connections for up to four USB devices. This provides additional 3G bandwidth and, because of LiveShot’s advanced dynamic bonding capabilities, the Hub also provides modem redundancy – as the camera moves, LiveShot will constantly adjust the amount of contribution from each modem.

Additional connection options…

Beyond 4G and 3G cellular connections, LiveShot can utilize many other types of networks. For instance, typical 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz Wi-Fi networks can be accessed via USB devices while 5.8GHz wireless radio networks, new mobile MIMO networks and satellite up-links are available via LiveShot’s RJ-45 port for the harshest environments. Of course, you can also use a wired LAN connection when available.

Comrex Connect Modems

The Comrex Connect Modem is designed to support the unique needs of remote broadcasters. A high-powered, industrial strength 4G/LTE modem outfitted with a high-gain antenna, the Connect Modem is more powerful than most USB data modems available on the market, to handle the heavy data load of a broadcast over IP.

The Connect Modem for LiveShot Portable comes in three varieties – Verizon, AT&T, and International (for use outside the United States). Connect Modems are unlocked and have been carrier approved and PTCRB certified to meet all necessary regulations.  

Please note: CJ (for use in China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and Brazil) is not available for LiveShot. 

Leverage Two Connect Modems

Leverage the power of two Comrex Connect Modems with your LiveShot Portable for twice the reliability. CrossLock technology, our sophisticated custom reliability layer, bonds the available cellular networks and sends a single media stream, along with background and error correction information, resulting in a higher level of reliability for remotes. LiveShot Portable supports up to two Comrex Connect Modems.
