At the IBC show 2018, LiveU with its flagship LU600 4K HEVC solution will showcase how it is taking live sports and news coverage to a new level.

Major sports events deploying LiveU units include:
• The FIFA World Cup in Russia – where the largest deployment of LiveU units are currently being used for live coverage from the 12 host cities
• Absa Cape Epic in South Africa’s Western Cape – the world’s most televised mountain bike race, covering 658 km over eight days
• G1 Formula racing – teaming up with Griiip, manufacturer of the G1 entry-level Formula race car; streaming live the G1 series races in Italy with on board units to increase audience engagement.

LiveU will be presenting the latest enhanced LU600 4K HEVC product suite with new features including:

• 4K SDI offerings – LiveU’s professional HEVC 4K-SDI card presents an additional 4K product offering within the LU600 suite. The LU600 4K-SDI solution facilitates professional 4Kp50/60 streaming for top-quality production, supporting VR and 360 applications.
• Built-in global roaming capabilities – The LU600 solution now offers a fully integrated hybrid roaming solution for hassle-free local and global operation. With the new dual-SIM modem configured with roaming SIMs, every LU600 can be a local and global unit without needing to replace or obtain local SIMs in over 100 countries worldwide. Combining three key elements – dual-SIMs, global modems and roaming software – the LiveU units are ready to roam instantly.
• Video return – targeted for professional broadcasters, this other key product enhancement enables field crews to see what’s currently on-air and receive teleprompt information during live sessions.

LiveU’s flagship LU600 solution with the HEVC Pro card offers the highest video performance in live streaming for global newsgathering. Combined with the 4K HEVC Pro Card, the LU600 allows professional broadcasters and content creators to provide 4K video performance with extreme bandwidth efficiency, using one of the smallest portable cellular bonding units in the market.

New cloud service called LiveU Matrix is a next-generation platform for live contribution over IP, enabling broadcasters to view, manage and distribute live content quickly and efficiently. The dynamic cloud platform makes it simple to curate content through one interface. Users can easily search, filter, preview, and distribute live feeds to one station, multiple stations, or thousands of end points within their entire affiliate network.

LiveU will also be demonstrating the latest additions to Solo, LiveU’s high-quality, plug-and-play live streaming device for the online media, including 
a newly enhanced Solo Studio Cloud Graphics suite and a new Solo app – the Solo app combines cellular and Wi-Fi connections for more reliable streaming than smartphones.
