LiveU Preps IBC 2015 Activities

LiveU has top-tier customers in more than 60 countries, and many are heading to Amsterdam looking for new IP-based live video services and solutions.

LiveU will present its full range of broadcast video devices and workflow solutions at IBC 2015. These powerful devices and solutions include LiveU’s award-winning portable transmission units. LiveU’s small form-factor LU200 and LU500 lightweight backpack units were recently used by Sky News for its “ambitious and wide-ranging” UK General Election coverage.

The LU200 is the smallest LiveU unit.

The LU200 is an ultra-small field unit compatible with any camera. At just over 500 grams (1 lb) it is available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration. The small size of the LU200 makes it a handy, cost-effective, easy-to-use and easy-to-move unit for live video transmission from anywhere in the world.

The LU500 backpack is LiveU's most popular unit.

It offers the ultimate combination of high performance and portability with a large, bright built-in monitor. The LU500 is powered by LiveU’s multi-processor video encoding engine and fourth-generation patented bonding algorithms, and boot time is less than a minute. The LU500 can encode and transmit video content via a local Internet connection or a bonded cellular connection.

Connecting in the Cloud
LU-Smart mobile app brings bonded transmission to mobile phones & tablets. Taking the LU-Smart to a whole new level, LiveU's BeFirst is a solution for integrating LiveU's Smart Technology into your existing mobile apps.

BeFirst leverages LiveU technology for Citizen Journalism. User Generated Content (UGC) has undoubtedly become one of the major vectors for discovery and acquisition of breaking news. BeFirst is the best method to incorporate this potentially valuable source of content into existing networks and workflow.

An integrated camera and live video uplink solution that links and leverages the LiveU Central cloud based management platform and Panasonic cameras will also be demonstrated. The AJ-PX5000G, AJ-PX800and AJ-PX270 camcorders now support direct connection to the LiveU Central management platform using public networks such as 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi or wired LAN.

MultiPoint will also be demonstrated at the stand. MultiPoint is an internal and cross-organizational professional video distribution service, enabling the sharing of high-quality live video between multiple broadcast facilities over the public Internet. It integrates seamlessly into users’ daily workflow, allowing sharing of incoming live feeds with multiple end-points from within the same LiveU Central interface they work with daily.

“LiveU will be making important additional product announcements in the run-up to IBC and will showcase these new developments at the show” the press release states. Stay tuned.
