LiveU is launching its new Matrix Transceiver with up to four flexible in/out SDI feeds, designed for maximum versatility for switching between live video distribution and contribution.
The new rackmount unit enables broadcasters and content producers to share and receive high-quality, low latency live feeds simultaneously to, and from, global destinations as part of a single workflow, said LiveU.
The transceiver works alongside LiveU Matrix IP cloud video distribution service. No pre-configuration is required, everything can be managed remotely via software using the LiveU Central unified management platform, said the company. Power consumption and carbon footprint are reduced by combining both the encoder and decoder into a single 1RU, it added.
Amir Kamzel, VP product, LiveU said, “We’re constantly looking at innovative ways of optimising the workflow for news, sports and other markets while expanding our live video capabilities. Providing built-in flexibility, the LiveU Matrix Transceiver reduces the need for multiple encoding and decoding devices with a dedicated distribution and contribution solution.
“Users can dynamically choose the optimal combination of sharing and receiving SDI channels, supporting up to four simultaneous feeds. We listened to our customers and directly addressed their broadcast requirements with a multi-purpose solution, helping them to simplify their operations and widen their reach for their video content.”
