Stage 1
Our story kicks off with a distinct hurdle:
How do we keep a 4K video signal
The Spark
crisp and uninterrupted
during the heat of live events, dodging the usual
suspects like battery changes or the vulnerabilities
of wireless systems?
Our challenge:
Ensuring stable video via fiber optics on the winch

without longer installs,
avoiding cable wear and snaps.

Polishing the Gem
But we didn't stop there.
Feedback is gold, and it showed us the edges to smooth out. The first iteration of LiveLine, while innovative, needed to be seamlessly integrated across different platforms.
Enter version two:
more universal, with 4K video support,
and a patented cable that carries both signal and power.
better cable laying mechanics and less vibration to minimize wear,
LiveLine is ready
to meet any challenge

live broadcasting,
from TV studio applications to outdoor arenas.
It is used even by steadicam operators helping them to pull the cable and keep the cable slack
in check.
LiveLine's knack for delivering a smooth, uninterrupted 4K live stream has quickly become a must-have for many broadcasters around the globe.
Uzbekistan’s ZOR TV integrated LiveLine with their studio cable control system, benefiting from an interference-free communication channel and
an additional safety layer for TV studio, indoor
and outdoor events.
Today, LiveLine stands as a
