LiveU Releases Its Best-in-Class Rackmount REMI Encoders

LiveU has announced the LU810 and LU610S, its breakthrough rackmount REMI (remote production) encoders with support for 5G, 4K and synchronized, multi-camera contribution.

Leveraging LiveU's Reliable Transport (LRT) protocol for IP bonding, and featuring new multi-camera capabilities, the new vehicle and fixed location solutions offer the highest levels of resiliency over the public internet together with ultra-low latency and cost savings.

The one LiveU 5G product platform does it all – vehicles and fixed locations – providing the business flexibility to run any live production workflow. Available in two configurations, the multi-cam LU810 (with up to four fully synced feeds) and single camera LU610S encoders represent the latest additions to LiveU's 5G product suite, complementing its portable multi-cam LU800 and latest compact LU300S unit. Seamlessly integrated with LiveU's end-to-end cloud production workflow, all solutions can be controlled from anywhere via the LiveU Central cloud management platform interface.

LiveU's new vehicle encoder solutions bond multiple internal 5G/4G modems, with WiFi and Ethernet, enabling full flexibility in any location or scenario. Production teams can dynamically switch between bonded cellular, wired and satellite connectivity, as needed, to deliver the highest quality video. Transmission quality and costs can also be optimized using LiveU's least cost bonding feature, with different priorities managed under the changing bandwidth conditions. Seamlessly integrated with LiveU's remote production tools (IP Pipe, Video Return, Tally Light and Audio Connect), the rackmount encoders offer a complete field production solution from a van.

The new fixed location encoder solutions offer point-to-point and point-to-multipoint transmission over wired connections. A highly cost-effective alternative for fiber and satellite-based productions, they support broadcast-grade, low-delay live video transmission between stations or from venues/stadiums to the remote production center. They can also serve as a content source for the LiveU Matrix cloud IP management and distribution solution, allowing live feeds to be easily shared to a wider audience.

LiveU's new rackmount encoders offer up to 4Kp60 10-bit HDR transmission for optimal color depth and richness, and up to 16 audio channels for richer audio production (up to eight with the LU610S).

LiveU's full 5G product suite will be on display with its end-to-end cloud production workflow at IBC 2022.
