LiveU Teams with LTN for Live Content Delivery

New partnership enables customers of both LTN Global and LiveU to enhance their content and expand their reach. With a simple LTN booking process and direct integration with content acquired with LiveU products, users anywhere can share TV content to any global LTN distribution point instantly and easily.

LiveU is partnering with LTN Global Communications to allow any global customer the ability to wirelessly deliver broadcast quality, live video to more outlets than ever before.

LTN is the only fully-managed Global IP Network available for live video transmission. LTN provides a proprietary global network of private super-nodes connected via multiple, redundant Tier 1 multi-gigabit IP backbone links enabling a powerful media transport service built on cutting-edge cloud network technology.

All LiveU’s products now serve as a wireless on-ramp to the LTN Network providing customers a limitless and instantaneous connection to the LTN Network of more than 1,000 occasional-use sites. They include networks, TV stations, cable headends, production studios, colleges, sports networks, switching hubs, and teleports.

LiveU’s unique Reliable Transport protocol (LRT) is the heart of LiveU’s products, and it delivers optimized video performance and ensures reliable, low delay live video streaming over non-guaranteed IP networks, including cellular from remote locations, directly to any LTN-connected site. LiveU customers can quickly link their broadcast to LTN through the LiveU Central unified management platform without any additional hardware.

Booking point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmission to one or multiple LTN destinations is easily accomplished through the LTN Booking Portal.

“The partnership between LiveU and LTN will allow LiveU customers to further monetize their capital investment in LiveU equipment by putting LTN’s global resources and hundreds of LTN’s connected sites within easy reach at a moment’s notice,” said Malik Khan, Executive Chairman, LTN Global Communications. “LTN’s customers will be able to leverage LiveU’s wireless connectivity to transmit feeds over the LTN network from sites where landline Internet connectivity is either not possible or too expensive.”

LiveU’s Co-Founder and COO Avi Cohen said, “We are thrilled to be LTN’s first wireless partner. Now, wherever they are in the world, LiveU customers can connect to the LTN network. The options for sharing live content continues to change all the time and our goal is to make this as easy as possible for our customers. The distribution options are almost limitless for our customers to create and reliably share live video seamlessly over IP with LTN.”
