IP-based live video transmitters get the vote

The LU200 transmitter, which can turn any camera into a mobile live streaming device, is on display at LiveU’s stand during IBC2015.

The small two-modem bonded field unit is being shown alongside the LU500 lightweight backpack transmitter. Both the LU200 and the LU500 were used by Sky News in the UK for coverage of this year’s parliamentary General Election.

Sky is not the only broadcaster to use cellular bonding newsgathering technology from LiveU during election coverage in recent times. In 2014 it was used during the Indian and Sri Lankan general elections.

It was also deployed to cover the 2015 Greek election.

Also on show at IBC will be LiveU Central, the cloud-based management and video distribution system that allows fleets of LiveU units to be centrally controlled using geo-location capabilities.

Other IBC highlights for the New Jersey-based company include MultiPoint, a video distribution service for sharing high-quality live video between multiple broadcast facilities over the public Internet.

Details of a strategic collaboration with Panasonic on an end-to-end system for connecting Panasonic cameras with the LiveU Central management platform will also be showcased, as well as the LU-Smart app for mobiles and tablet computers.
