BVE 2016: Ultra-small IP transmission from LiveU
LiveU’s LU200 ultra-small transmission unit will be highlighted by Garland Partners on stand L06 at BVE. It’s compatible with any camera and is ideal for broadcasts on the fly, turning any camera into a livestreaming device. Weighing just over 500 grams (1 lb) and available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration, the LU200 provides a highly cost-effective and easy-to-use unit for live video transmission anywhere in the world.
This low-power unit gives users the flexibility of transmitting high-quality video over bonded cellular or satellite/fixed link, or a hybrid of the two. The LU200 has options for LAN-only as an adaptive bitrate encoder (LU200e) or LAN plus two high-gain antenna-integrated cellular modems (LU200). Two additional external cellular USB modems can also be attached.
Garland will also showcase LiveU’s flagship LU500, the ultimate combination of high-performance and portability for cellular uplinking. It benefits from a small form-factor combined with exceptional functionality. Weighing approximately 1 kg (2.2 lbs), the unit is powered by LiveU’s new multi-processor, video encoding engine and fourth-generation patented bonding algorithms, with up to 13 network connections.
The LiveU MultiPoint is a system for internal and cross-organisational professional video distribution, allowing content to be easily shared. MultiPoint seamlessly integrates into users’ daily workflow, allowing them to share incoming live feeds with multiple end-points from within the same LiveU Central interface they work with daily.
LiveU’s Xtender is an integrated antenna solution that increases network reception, providing additional resiliency for live video transmission in extreme scenarios. The Xtender offers users the flexibility to use cellular connectivity as part of existing SNG/ENG trucks, bonding cellular and satellite connections for ultimate live video performance, or to remotely connect to LiveU’s backpack and handheld uplink units.
