LiveU offers an addition to LiveU’s LU600 portable transmission unit

LiveU presents its HEVC Pro Card, offering an addition to LiveU’s LU600 portable transmission unit for global newsgathering and events coverage. Integrating the LU600 with the new 4K HEVC/H.265 hardware-based encoder allows professional broadcasters and content creators to benefit from enhanced video performance with better bandwidth efficiency. LiveU is adopting the HEVC standard across its entire product portfolio from its smallest uplink units to hybrid truck solutions.

 

LiveU highlights these features:

• Superior 1080/4K video quality based on broadcast-grade hardware encoding, supporting VR and 360 degree applications

• Very low power consumption, delivering 4 hours of battery time for unit operation

• Dynamic bitrate and resolution changes on the fly, enabling real-time encoding based on available bandwidth, providing the best streaming solution in low bandwidth situations

• HEVC and H.264 file encoding capability for production workflows

• ‘Live & Store’, allowing broadcasters to go live under any network conditions while simultaneously saving a high-quality copy of the live video for future purposes

 

Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, said: “LiveU’s HEVC Pro Card is a major breakthrough, combining the industry’s leading portable bonding unit with the most robust 4K HEVC encoder to drive bandwidth, cost and performance efficiency. This will appeal to both innovative global broadcasters looking to deliver HD and 4K/UHD live video and regional broadcasters streaming from bandwidth-challenging areas. We see massive potential for live sports and other premium applications, as well as breaking and developing news coverage.”
