Livelink is a robust IP delivery solution for transporting live linear and OTT content from point to single-point or multi-point. It allows users to self-manage their live content for delivery to any destination worldwide by utilizing cloud environments available in every region. Livelink is cloud agnostic and compatible with any transport protocol including Zixi, RIST, SRT, HLS and RTMP.
Livelink’s expand on demand infrastructure ensures that teams can quickly scale their requirements within minutes. This flexible approach enables stakeholders managing live broadcasts and events to adapt to changing circumstances. Livelink does not rely on traditional infrastructure which makes it extremely cost-effective. Its intuitive self-service interface enables users to easily transport, manage and extract value from live content. The platform integrates rights management, automatic booking updates and customisable monitoring and alerts so that customers retain control of all aspects of delivery.
Livelink offers broadcasters the ability to deploy and deliver live feeds with minimal on-site presence. The platform offers global reach and is the ideal solution to reduce live event overheads and also supports current social distancing measures which the broadcasting industry has implemented. The self-management interface monitors availability, routing and scheduling for all feeds, as well as tracking cloud environment costs. Cerberus Tech can fulfil hardware requirements, direct to the end user if required. However, in many instances no additional hardware is required for set-up, just an internet connection.
Chris Clarke, CEO, Cerberus, comments, “The return to live sports events and the backlog of matches has meant that the existing infrastructure is struggling to keep up with demand and event concurrency. Livelink enables broadcasters and production companies to be the architects of their own environment, delivering feeds extremely cost-effectively and with very quick set-up times. With the situation changing week to week, Livelink offers a pay-as-you-go, adaptive solution that broadcasters can rely on.”
The latest version of Livelink was developed with funding from Innovate UK.
