LiveU presents an addition to LU600 portable transmission unit

LiveU has presented its HEVC Pro Card, offering an addition to LiveU’s LU600 portable transmission unit for newsgathering and events coverage. LiveU is adopting the HEVC standard across its entire product portfolio from its smallest uplink units to hybrid truck solutions.


LiveU highlights these key features:

  • 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.
  • 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.


“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,” has said Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO. “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.”
