LiveU Rolls Out HEVC 4K-SDI Card

The LiveU LU600 HEVC product now includes professional 4K SDI solution for high-end live coverage and built-in global roaming.

“The market response to our LU600 HEVC solution has been tremendous. Customers worldwide have been telling us that the quality of their HEVC live video coverage is exceptional, enabling them to replace traditional transmission methods completely,” said Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO and Co-founder. “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.”

LiveU is rolling out its professional HEVC 4K-SDI card as an additional 4K product offering within the LU600 suite. The solution facilitates professional 4Kp50/60 streaming for top-quality production, supporting VR and 360 applications. Supporting both 12G-SDI and 4x3G-SDI interfaces, the solution provides an upgrade option for the existing LU600.

“The LU600 solution now offers a hybrid roaming solution for hassle-free local and global operation,” said Wasserman. “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 over 100 countries worldwide. The LiveU units are ready to roam instantly.

Other key product enhancements for the LU600 HEVC product suite include Video Return, targeted for broadcasters, enabling field crews to see what’s currently on-air and receive teleprompter information during live sessions.
