LiveU covering the Absa Cape Epic mountain bike stage race in South Africa.
LiveU is majoring on its flagship LU600 4K HEVC solution at IBC2018, showcasing events like the FIFA World Cup in Russia – where the largest deployment of LiveU units are currently being used for live coverage from the 12 host cities.
LiveU will present the company's latest product enhancements, including a HEVC 4K-SDI card within the LU600 suite. The solution facilitates professional 4Kp50/60 streaming for top-quality production, supporting VR and 360 applications.
There are built-in global roaming capabilities too. The LU600 now has a fully integrated hybrid roaming solution for local and global operation. 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.
Video return is targeted for professional broadcasters enabling field crews to see what’s currently on-air and receive teleprompt information during live sessions.
LiveU will also be showing LiveU Matrix, a platform for live contribution over IP, enabling broadcasters to view, manage and distribute live content quickly and efficiently. Users can easily search, filter, preview, and distribute live feeds to one station, multiple stations, or thousands of end points within their entire affiliate network.
Solo, LiveU’s plug-and-play live streaming device for online media is also promoted alongside a Studio Cloud Graphics suite. The suite provides customers with the ability to send a stream and insert innovative graphics in real-time in the cloud.
A new Solo app for the product combines cellular and Wi-Fi connections for more reliable streaming than smartphones.
LU600 4K was also used this year to cover the Absa Cape Epic in South Africa’s Western Cape – the world’s most televised mountain bike race, covering 658 km over eight days; and entry-level Formula racing in partnership with Griiip, manufacturer of the G1 series races in Italy.
