LiveU Adds Sony’s XDCAM Camcorder to its Live-Camera Supported Solutions
LiveU (Booth SU5511) has announced that its portable live video-over-cellular solutions are now compatible with Sony’s professional PDW-700 camcorder for live-video coverage.
Supported by a LiveU dedicated bracket, Sony customers and LiveU customers can now use their respective products together in an improved workflow. This workflow offers customers an integrated video camera and live video uplink solution, using LiveU’s handheld LU40 video uplink device and Sony’s XDCAM professional shoulder-mounted camcorders starting with the PDW-700 model.
The LU40 provides a high-quality, simple-to-use and cost-effective uplink solution for live newsgathering and online coverage of events. With up to six network connections and weighing less than 1.5 lbs., the bonded LU40 offers 4G LTE/3G, WiMAX, WiFi, and LAN video transmission in a substantially smaller form factor. With its integral touchscreen, the LU40 provides simple yet flexible mechanisms for either local or remote control.
LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US and other countries. All of its products are based on this fourth-generation technology.
