LiveU has announced the release of its next-generation Solo PRO portable bonding encoder, which includes both 4K and HEVC video capability.
The encoder combines up to six IP connections – four 4G/5G cellular modems, WiFi and LAN, and can be used for any type of live event coverage, both indoors and outdoors.
