A new plug and play live streaming bonding product for the online media market has been launched by LiveU. Solo, designed to work with web streaming workflows, connects automatically to Wowza Streaming Cloud, the cloud streaming service and a number of other CDNs, OVPs and YouTube Live. The encoder is built around LiveU’s existing bonding technology and its integral LRT (LiveU Reliable Transport) adaptive bit rate and forward error correction protocol and can be managed and controlled remotely via a web interface or smartphone.
LiveU ceo Samuel Wasserman said: “LiveU Solo is set to create a new standard in the web streaming space. Our goal is to offer an integrated and much more powerful solution to sports and other vertical markets.”
“LiveU Solo is a cost-effective way to send video over the web to Wowza Streaming Cloud,” added ceo and co-founder of Wowza Systems David Stubenvoll.
