The following case study describes how Livewire Digital has helped shape the UK MoD media strategy.

Livewire Digital assisted in drawing up the requirements that would see standardised workflows being put in place across all the services, the army, the navy and the airforce. This addressed both field and office operations, HD & SD workflows, the integration of audio & video equipment, NLE and suitable communications infrastructure.

Training services are provided at regular intervals to ensure that field operatives are familiar with the current generation of equipment, software and associated workflows.

In order to distribute content gathered by the forces internally and to mainstream broadcaster , in a safe, secure and timely manner, Livewire Digital provided consultancy services to the MoD central media repository, the DNI.

Based around M-Link Exchange, the DNI acts as the central receiver for all MOD field media content and allows distribution to mainstream broadcasters and media outlets around the world. The system enables filed operatives to file material to the central site where the associated files are automatically transcoded to a number of industry standard formats, put forward for approval and then made public on the DNI website.

A comprehensive support package is provided to both field users experiencing difficulties and staff maintaining the central media repository, the DNI. This includes Livewire Digitals technology refresh, providing clients with access to the latest generation of M-Link software.

Livewire Digital understands that Government and Military customers require more than just a product, and provides consultancy, integration, installation and support services to ensure that the project becomes a professional working solution.
