Hackensack, NJ, March 1st, 2017 – LiveU today introduced its new hybrid satellite and cellular HD solution, transforming its ultra-small LU200e uplink unit into a rack-mounted product. Leveraging LiveU’s proven bonding technology, the LU210 and LU220 solutions allow news teams to combine satellite and cellular networks for newsgathering on-the-move and in fixed locations.
Both encoders can be connected to LiveU’s Xtender transmission device and IP-based Ka-Sat, providing extra-strong resiliency in extreme scenarios. For studio based solutions, they enable content contribution from remote/fixed locations and the uploading of content to LiveU’s MultiPoint internal and cross-organizational video distribution service.
Key benefits include: high video quality using LiveU’s unique LRT (LiveU Reliable Transport™) protocol; central and remote management via LiveU Central; least cost bonding – automatically controlling how much bandwidth is transmitted over cellular or satellite connections; and density and cost savings.
Avi Cohen, LiveU’s Co-founder & COO, said, “We’re seeing a growing trend of converting SNG trucks to hybrid trucks, as well as the use of smaller vehicles for mobile news coverage. These new encoders combine reliability, flexibility and mobility in a cost-effective package. Broadcasters can achieve the highest service availability and video quality in any location.”
