Bonded 3G/4G uplink technology used during coverage of both the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the Sochi Winter Olympics will be on show at the LiveU stand at IBC2014.
The range of portable live video acquisition, contribution and management innovations includes the LU500 and the DataBridge.
The former, which weighs 1kg (2.2 lbs) and is available in both backpack and camera-mount versions, is based on patented bonding algorithms and is powered by a new multi-processor video encoding engine.
The LiveU DataBridge is a mobile hotspot that offers broadband connectivity in any location by bonding together multiple cellular and other data connections.
Also being demonstrated during IBC will be a browser-based management system for controlling and tracking LiveU systems, feeds and apps. LiveU Central enables a live preview of all incoming feeds to be dragged and dropped onto a physical server output anywhere around the world or be encoded for web streaming.
LiveU’s mobile application for smartphones and tablets, the LU-Smart will also be on show, along with the Xtender external antenna for extra-resilient signal in extreme scenarios and some new hybrid solutions that make use of both microwave and satellite technologies.
