LU-Smart

Bringing Bonded Transmission to Mobile Phones & Tablets

Supporting several iOS/Android devices, the LU-Smart mobile app represents the next level in mobile newsgathering, allowing LiveU’s broadcasting and online video customers to extend their coverage using a smartphone or tablet. Based on LiveU’s fourth-generation uplink technology, LU-Smart bonds internal Wi-Fi and cellular connections to reach optimal video quality.

SMARTGRIP

LiveU’s innovative SmartGRIP device holds a chargeable battery and MiFi channel (or any other mobile hotspot), which is bonded together with the smartphone’s internal 3G/4G connection to combine two cellular connections beyond the smartphone, boosting live video transmission time, quality, reliability and performance.

FLEXIBLE HD COVERAGE

The LU-Smart enables high-quality, reliable live video transmission on-the-move. Operators can combine available networks to support connection to an external MiFi, enabling the bonding of two cellular connections in a single smartphone. In this way users can bond the phones’ internal 3G/4G with external 3G/4G for a very fast uplink

LIVEU’S GO-PLAN

The LiveU Go-Plan gives broadcasters the opportunity to maximize their content gathering potential by providing LiveU software access to unlimited users within the organization. Broadcasters are able to purchase a pool of data every month for use among as many LU-Smart, LU-Lite and integrated Panasonic devices as they need. Now everyone, from production assistant to journalist to camera person can go live at anytime from anywhere in the world.
