BitFire Makes Your Life Easier

BitFire is the ONLY company that has perfected an all-in-one IP transport system.

Using deterministic latency, we have the ability to seamlessly synchronize multiple audio and video sources from disparate locations.

In addition to our transport technology, we can easily deploy a browser-based production communications solution, remotely control PTZ cameras and DMX lighting controls, or package an entire remote production within our own facilities. 

BitFire is at the forefront of changing live video production into the future.

Simply put, BitFire will get your live production from wherever it is, to wherever it needs to be securely, reliably and at the highest quality possible.
Given our scalability, combined with custom end-to-end solutions for live broadcast and webcast productions, we specialize in productions of any size and scope…regardless of the medium.

With clients ranging from National News Networks to Professional Sporting Leagues, to Major Sporting Rights Holders, to other Broadcast Vendors, BitFire can support any level of production, and almost any facet of production, anywhere in the world.

BitFire is a complete, end-to-end solution for live broadcast and webcast productions of all sizes. We specialize in live event video production, internet streaming and TV broadcasting for sporting events across the country. 

With clients like the NFL, MLB, NHL and Major League Soccer, BitFire produces hundreds of live sports events each year and has perfected the delivery of multi-camera transmission services and broadcast solutions.

Our friends at the NHL chose BitFire when due to COVID-19, the NHL had to cancel their planned live, in-person 2020 NHL Draft.

BitFire delivered its ‘best in class’ IP transmission while expertly manning broadcast engineering support of three national broadcast partners.

The NHL was ecstatic with the flawless, responsive and professional execution of BitFire in the face of unforeseeable challenges.
