LiveU LU 300 HEVC

Compact HEVC Field Unit for On-the-Go Live Streaming

The LU300 is a small-sized, cost-effective and reliable HEVC encoder, enabling broadcasters and other content creators to transmit high-quality video on-the-go.

With LiveU’s professional-grade hardware HEVC technology at its core, the LU300 combines high quality video performance with extreme bandwidth efciency. Content creators can provide the same video quality as H.264 while using about half the bandwidth. In cases where original H.264 bitrate is maintained, the LU300 HEVC ofers greatly improved video quality.

Unlike software HEVC solutions, the LU300 can encode in HEVC format at all times, allowing users to operate in real-time with extreme low latency and the highest quality, even at very low bitrates.

The LU300 ofers longer battery time with a three-hour internal battery.[/fusion_text][fusion_text]Weighing just over 900 grams (2 lbs) and available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration, the LU300 bonds up to six connections: two LTE-Advanced internal modems,two external modems, WiFi and LAN.

Live& Store functionality enables users to upload high quality stored copies of the live video immediately after live sessions.
Highly flexible,the LU300 can also serve as a standalone video encoder or be used as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot for general connectivity in the feld.

With its new design, the LU300 ofers an enlarged 2.2” display with improved resolution, dramatic improvement in visibility under sunlight conditions and a new JOG controller for easier control of theunit. Additional enhancements include a stronger CPU for super-fast fle upload.
