Live U, 10 Years Later

Ten years ago, LiveU disrupted the industry and ushered in the first IP revolution in broadcasting with cellular bonding. Since then, the adoption of IP-based workflows in broadcasting has grown tremendously. With new, innovative hardware and software solutions, strategic partnerships and advances in 4K, LiveU continues to transform the way broadcasters and online video content creators produce, integrate, and share high-quality streaming content.

At the 2016 NAB Show, LiveU featured an exclusive in-exhibit live studio, in collaboration with, NewTek and Panasonic, to demonstrate new IP broadcast technologies.

Solo is a hardware solution with built-in HDMI, SDI, battery and screen.

The company introduced LiveU Solo, a new 'plug and play' live streaming bonded solution that fits seamlessly with web streaming workflows.

Optimized for online video performance, Solo delivers the rock-solid video streams by using LiveU Reliable Transport (LRT) protocol’s integral adaptive bit rate and forward error correction technology.

LiveU Solo connects automatically to Wowza Streaming Cloud, as well as other popular CDNs, OVPs and YouTube Live, making live video simple.

Solo can be managed and controlled remotely via a web interface or smartphone.

NDI support

LiveU announced adoption of NewTek’s open Network Device Interface (NDI) standard. This means LiveU is a source recognized by other NDI-enabled devices and systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network. This new standard for live production IP workflow is bi-directional and compatible with a large number of devices from top manufacturers already utilizing NewTek’s open standard, allowing IP connectivity between devices and applications.

LiveU’s MultiPoint IP video distribution solution effectively eliminates reliance on expensive satellite uplinks. MultiPoint is fully integrated into LiveU Central, a unified, browser-based cloud management platform that enables broadcasters to share high quality, live video between multiple broadcast locations over the public Internet. LiveU users can now share content across up to 100 locations with no additional hardware.
