Exceptional performance, exceptional speed
The LU600 is LiveU’s sixth-generation portable unit for global newsgathering, 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 file transfer, and lowest delay. This is offered 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 benefit from unparalleled video performance with extreme bandwidth efficiency – 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 the original H.264 bitrate is maintained, the HEVC Pro Card offers greatly improved video quality.
LiveU’s LU600 HEVC product suite offers three configurations to meet customers’ specific 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
- High-efficiency internal antennas with LTE Advanced support
- Highest video quality and bitrate: up to 20Mbps
- Fastest file transfer for FTP/S&F modes: up to 60Mbps
- Video Return enabling live feeds from studio to the field
- 4 hour battery time
- 30sec. boot-up time
- 4 audio channels
- High-speed internet capabilities
- H.264 and HEVC file encoding capability
