Yacht Racing

Media & Communications Systems

Delivering faster and more resilient Internet access to business and social travellers

Livewire Digital has been designing software, electronics, specialist cameras, and communications systems for the most prestigious in-shore and ocean racing events for over 20 years. Whether the requirement is for a system suitable for a single-handed or fully crewed racing yacht, Livewire Digital can offer a solution.

Systems range from a simple iOS application to a complete Media Station with waterproof cameras and microphones and workflows that support both live, file based media and yacht telemetry.

Designing equipment that is capable of operating in extreme environments, like ocean racing, requires special consideration for materials, power, communications and suitable workflows. Consider something as simple as a connector; having deployed professional waterproof connectors from high-end manufactures and had all models fail to a more or less extent, Livewire Digital designed a connector solution for the above decks cameras that have been 100% reliable across a fleet of yachts on a round the world event.
