LiveU has unveiled the LU300S, its newest native 5G compact video transmission solution, which transmits up to 4K 10-bit HDR high-quality video over 5G networks.
The new unit, based on the company’s LiveU Reliable Transport technology, offers support for up to six IP connections, including four 5G/4G cellular connections, WiFi and LAN. It also supports up to eight audio channels.
LiveU said the unit, which weighs just over 2lb/900g, can be managed both remotely from the production control centre, and locally by OB crews.
It can be used in conjunction with LiveU’s Matrix IP management and distribution solution to transmit feeds.
Speaking about the new unit, Samuel Wasserman, CEO and co-founder, LiveU said: “We have seen how the flexibility of the LU300 has enabled customers to boost viewer engagement for a wide variety of sports, entertainment and other live events. This brand-new offering encompasses the latest developments in 5G, 4K 10-bit HDR video quality, and HEVC encoding for even higher-level productions. Providing built-in 5G support, the LU300S delivers the highest bandwidth and ultra-low latency.
“The industry’s most popular field unit, the LU300, has already proved itself in extreme use cases around the world, such as motorsport and airborne firefighting services, and we’re excited to see the incredible new opportunities opening up with the LU300S.”
