LiveU Majors On HEVC Transmission

LiveU will present its portfolio of 5G-enabled solutions for live newsgathering and dynamic sports coverage for every type of event. The firm says it’s already gearing up to support hundreds of customers with its HEVC technology at the 2020 games in Tokyo.

On show at IBC are LiveU kit including the LU600 4K HEVC portable transmission solution. The latest edition facilitates 4Kp50/60 streaming, supporting VR and 360 applications.

Its LU300 HEVC unit is for customers requiring a smaller field unit that can also serve as a standalone video encoder or be used as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot for general connectivity in the field.

The 1U 4K HEVC rackmount, LU610 4K HEVC is for vehicles and fixed locations. This encoder, based on LiveU’s LU600 4K HEVC technology, is a hybrid solution for SNG trucks, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint distribution.

Remote product includes Tally Light to enable field reporters to know instantly when they’re live on air via a red-light indicator connected to a LiveU unit; and LiveU Graphics – a cloud production tool for adding dynamic graphics to live streams.

“With precision measurement of end-to-end delay, LiveU’s Remote At-Home Production allows more events to be covered with simplified logistics and reduced costs,” the vendor says. “Multi-camera live events can be produced from a centralized studio control room instead of costly on-site production and satellite trucks.”

Of course the firm has an AI solution. For field news gathering LiveU offers a comprehensive set of contribution and AI-based video indexing tools for enriching, searching and accessing live or file-based content.

“Operating within the LiveU Central cloud management platform, LiveU AI will enable editors to search and find their required footage faster than ever, easing their daily workload and making real-time production much more efficient,” it says.

A new LiveU Central feature, Single Sign On (SSO) for secure user management, integrated with the customer’s active directory or Identity as a Service (IDaaS), will also feature.

On the distribution side LiveU Matrix provides a content curation service for newsroom managers to give hundreds of affiliates access to live feeds from LiveU units in the field and other sources “without any interruption, additional resources, or expensive fees”. Matrix is also for sports producers looking to live stream events easily and cost-effectively to multiple destinations and TV stations.
