LONDON, January 11, 2011 - On November 19th a group from the University of Exeter and University
College Falmouth set off on a journey to explore the rainforests of Murung
Raya province of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.
The group are researching this previously unexplored region and hope to
discover new species as they venture into remote and inhospitable areas still
undisturbed by man.
Livewire Digital Ltd have provided the team with the means to share their
adventure with a global audience. Livewire's market leading software is being
used for video compression and transmission and also for management of the
satellite link. M-Link Newscaster is being used for store & forward video
delivery and M-Link Live X for live video calls.
Live videoconferencing sessions with the Natural History Museum have been
planned, the first of these will take place on January 13th and will take
advantage of custom software developed by Livewire Digital Ltd. The software
will take the live video feed being played out at Livewire's Exchange
receiver and will act as a proxy to make the feed available to the
proprietary video conferencing unit at the Natural History Museum. Livewire
are offering this functionality as an "M-Link Bridge" service to customers
who do not have the infrastructure to receive live calls themselves, or who
want to bridge between an M-Link receiver and a standard video conferencing
unit. Livewire have also supplied the team with four Inmarsat iSat phones, a
Thrane & Thrane 700 terminal and some Iridium handsets.
Martin Holland expedition leader said, "The satellite communications
equipment that Livewire Digital Ltd have supplied, along with their expertise
and support in the field is invaluable."
Richard Aylmer-Hall, Business Development & Product Manager at Livewire
Digital Ltd commented - "We are delighted to be able to showcase our video
delivery software during such an adventurous and deserving expedition. We
wish the Heart of Borneo team every success and look forward to following
their adventures over the coming months."
