LiveU Introduces 4K Solution for Live Coverage and Global Roaming
LiveU has unveiled its newly enhanced LU600 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) portable transmission product suite. According to the company, it has already deployed thousands of its LU600 HEVC units worldwide, and its product suite now includes 4K Serial Digital Interface (SDI) offerings and built-in global roaming capabilities.
LiveU is rolling out its professional HEVC 4K-SDI card as an additional 4K product offering within the LU600 suite, offering improved video performance in live streaming for live sports and events, as well as global newsgathering. The LU600 4K-SDI solution facilitates professional 4Kp50/60 streaming, enabling Virtual Reality (VR) and 360 applications. Supporting both 12G-SDI and 4x3G-SDI interfaces, the solution provides an upgrade option for the existing LU600.
With the new dual-SIM modem configured with roaming SIMs, every LU600 can be a local and global unit without needing to replace or obtain local SIMs in more than 100 countries worldwide. Other key product enhancements for the LU600 HEVC product suite include video return, targeted for professional broadcasters, enabling field crews to see what’s currently on-air and receive teleprompt information during live sessions.
“We’ve already seen our HEVC solution used successfully during the recent Winter Games and we’re now looking ahead with anticipation to the FIFA World Cup in Russia,” said LiveU Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and co-founder Samuel Wasserman.
