Exceptional performance, exceptional speed
The LU600 is LiveU’s sixth-generation portable unit for global news gathering, live sports and events coverage. Setting the standard again for IP bonding, the LU600 delivers the highest video quality and bitrate in the market, fastest fle transfer and lowest delay. This is ofered over a new streamlined user interface, with an ultra-responsive 5.0” capacitive touchscreen.
Combined with the 4K HEVC Pro Card, the LU600 allows professional broadcasters and content creators to beneft from unparalleled video performance with extreme bandwidth efciency – using one of the smallest portable cellular bonding units in the market. Broadcasters 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 HEVC Pro Card ofers greatly improved video quality.
LiveU’s LU600 HEVC product suite ofers three confgurations to meet customers’ specifc production needs, including: HD, 4K-HDMI and 4K-SDI. The 4K HEVC solution enables VR and 360 degree applications.
- Superior 1080/4K video quality based on broadcast-grade hardware encoding
