Comrex Version Security Concerns and Firmware Fixes



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!

Professional grade modem for broadcast applications.

Cellular wireless data connections like 3G and 4G LTE have redefined the way remote broadcasts are done. In particular, USB cellular modems make connecting to these networks fast and simple. But the number of USB cellular data devices offered by cell phone providers is dramatically decreasing in favor of cellular Wi-Fi Hotspots. Additionally, many of the off-the-shelf modems offered by carriers are not designed to meet the rigorous demands of the 24/7 news cycle.

With this in mind, Comrex has developed LiveShot Connect and ACCESS Connect – Pro-grade, high performance cellular data modems. To ensure that Comrex customers experience the highest degree of broadcast reliable data transmission, each device comes in a ruggedized, industrial case with a carrier-certified, high gain antenna (2.1 dBi) and sturdy, customized mounting hardware for either the LiveShot Portable IP Video codec or the ACCESS 2USB Portable IP Audio codec. LiveShot Connect includes custom mounting hardware that easily connects into the LiveShot Portable’s 4-pin female XLR connector. LiveShot Connect will fit into LiveShot Rain cover sleeves for extra security and protection from the elements.
