LiveU’s LU² Enables Increased Connections, Enhanced Resiliency
LiveU, a leader in portable live video-over-cellular solutions, is introducing LU², a modular solution that pushes the edge of innovation, enabling optimal use of available cellular networks by combining two LiveU field units for scenarios where additional resiliency is needed.
Using the LU² concept, operators can simply increase the number of connections, boosting the uplink bandwidth when needed, by connecting an additional LiveU unit with a standard Ethernet cable. This concept has been developed for current and future products and is available immediately.
The first implementation, the LU40², combines two LU40-S units together in a lightweight backpack (under 4lbs/2kgs, including batteries), providing up to 12 connections for scenarios where additional resiliency is needed. Revolutionizing the operational model of a backpack, the LU40² GUI is simply controlled remotely by a standard smartphone for complete flexibility on-the-move.
This new development complements the Xtender, LiveU’s wireless external antenna, which can be combined with any LiveU product, and offers up to 13 cellular connections.
Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, said “The new LU² modular approach allows customers to add connections on the spot, as needed, in challenging scenarios such as crowded areas and remote locations. With the LiveU stamp of excellence, this concept offers a highly flexible and cost-effective solution for HD live video transmission anywhere, anytime.”
LiveU owns the patent for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US and other countries. All LiveU products are based on this fourth-generation patented technology.
