LiveU Launches 5G Production-Level Field Unit
LiveU has unveiled an all-in-one production-level field unit for live news and sports coverage. The LU800 combines multi-camera production, and high-quality video and audio capabilities, with mission-critical transmission in a native 5G unit. Designed from the ground up to unlock 5G potential, the unit offers a high quality of service and resiliency.
The LU800 supports up to four fully frame-synced feeds in high resolution from a single unit, using IP bonding of up to 14 connections. The unit also offers high-quality video performance, with up to 4Kp60 10-bit HDR transmission for optimal colour depth and richness, as well as up to 16 audio channels for high-end productions.
The LU800 provides new levels of resiliency, combining superior 5G performance with up to eight 5G internal, dual-SIM modems, supported by high-efficiency internal antennas. The unit has been optimised for 5G operations, addressing unique 5G requirements with maximum versatility and full support for 5G network evolution.
With the LU800, LiveU now offers a full end-to-end contribution, production and distribution solution. The unit’s multi-camera production streams are fully managed by the LiveU Central cloud-based management platform and automatically fed into the LiveU Matrix IP content management and distribution workflow.
