Free App: Report-IT Lite for iPhone

Tieline launches Free iPhone Report-IT Codec Application

Indianapolis Indiana, USA July 21st 2010 – Codec manufacturer Tieline Technology announces the release of a new free version of its award winning iPhone* “live on location” audio codec application called Report-IT Lite. Now available on the iTunes App store, this new free version allows iPhone owners to use many of the features of the full Report-IT version and understand how it can be usefully deployed within their network.

International Marketing Manager, Darren Levy said “We made a free version of the app available to help people answer many questions on the performance of the iPhone as a broadcast tool.”

“Many customers have been surprised to learn that the iPhone’s in-built microphone delivers robust FM quality mono audio compared with most other phones on the market. Also, because Apple have a very strict policy for testing apps before they are allowed to run on the phone the platform is extremely stable for live broadcast, local recording, editing and FTP file transfer”, said Levy.

The company has made free test lines available so that users can connect live to a Tieline hardware studio codec to learn how it works. Users can also request free Tieline hardware codecs for their studios to conduct more comprehensive tests.

One feature available in Report-It which has caught the attention of several major networks is the ability to email or SMS a “launch and connect” pre-configured link to a non-technical Reporter’s iPhone. The Reporter touches the link in the email or SMS and it automatically launches Report-IT and connects to the studio live over 3GIP or WiFi. “This feature is a game changer for studio engineers who have non technical reporting staff or even remote talent who happen to have an iPhone”, said Levy.

Videos demonstrating the features of the new Report-IT iPhone Application are available on the company’s website at
