LiveU's new LU70 series offers the definitive cellular-based live video uplink solution for global broadcasters with its second-generation proprietary internal and external antenna arrays, offering satellite-like resiliency on-the-move and in heavily crowded locations. The LU70 bonds up to 14 3G/4G LTE, WiMAX and Wi-Fi modems simultaneously, supporting the growing range of cellular network bands worldwide.
The LU70 system includes new cutting-edge features, such as: One-Touch-Live (LiveU OTL™) mode with automatic adjustment of video resolutions for fast and easy live video transmission at the touch of a button; point to multi-point distribution, whereby a single device can broadcast to multiple, varied destinations concurrently; increased throughput up to 10Mb/sec for even better video quality and an instant Wi-Fi access point, providing wireless connectivity over Wi-Fi for areas with limited network connections.
The LU70 also includes: Fast File Transfer (FTP) for fast upload of pre-recorded material from anywhere into the workflow; IFB (return audio channel from studio), Store & Forward, and local recording on the transmitting unit or on externally attached storage device.
Transmitting live breaking news, sports and other events from almost anywhere around the globe has never been easier. Simply plug your HD camera into the LU70 and start your live transmission over the aggregated cellular and other links at the press of a button.
