Example Users

Livewire Digital has worked with mainstream broadcasters like Thomson Reuters & Sky for many years and M-Link is now embedded right across their newsgathering and studio operations. As a significant user of M-Link products we have listened carefully to feedback from senior executives, operational managers and cameramen to continually adapt and develop the software to meet the ever-evolving technology and practices unique to broadcast news. This has included improvements to the user interface, transfer mechanism as well as the range of supported file formats and data networks.

At the other end of the scale Livewire Digital also works with smaller news organisation and freelancers with only one or two cameras or crews. Our highly valued pre-sales and ongoing technical support makes the process of acquiring, installing and using M-Link simple and references from existing users is our most valued tool in expanding the business.
