LiveU is extending its Solo product line of professional-grade wireless video encoders to accommodate the growing needs of online content creators streaming to social media and other online destinations. The full product-line will be on display at IBC2017 (stand 3.B62).
Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO and Co-founder, explains: “When we launched Solo at IBC two years ago, we knew that we were bringing something different – a broadcast-quality cloud streaming solution based on our proven bonding technology. After selling thousands of units, we’re now taking our solution up several notches, enabling customers to elevate their content as well as extending our reach to other markets, such as sports, education and brand marketing.”
Solo’s portfolio now includes:
- Solo HDMI encoder – at $995, Solo HDMI version offers a lower priced and flexible option for portable live online coverage. This complements the SDI/HDMI Solo, priced at $1495.
- Solo Studio – featuring cloud graphics for the dynamic branding of content, including titles, logos, and scores.
- Solo app (iOS) – a simple way to get started with live content, combining cellular and Wi-Fi connections for more reliable streaming than smartphones.
The LiveU Solo portal user interface, accessible on any web-enabled device, has also been upgraded and offers a more intuitive and streamlined workflow helping Solo customers to navigate and complete tasks easily, such as Facebook Live scheduling.
Wasserman continues: “Customer engagement is crucial across the spectrum and, with the Solo Studio, our customers now have the tools to create more dynamic and professional content and reach wider audiences in more places and on more platforms.”
