Supporting worldwide 5G cellular frequencies, the LU600 5G enables users to enjoy all the benefits of the new networks, including lowest delay, the highest video quality and resolution, and fast file uploads, even in congested areas.
LiveU, which provides live video streaming for TV, mobile, online and social media, has unveiled its new fully compliant 5G LU600 solution for global newsgathering and live sports coverage. With internal 5G modems, and high-efficiency antennas covering all sub 6GHz frequencies for 5G and 4G, integrated with LiveU’s 4K HEVC technology, the LU600 5G promises customers a powerful, reliable and future-proof cellular transmission solution.
Speaking about the launch, Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO and Co-founder, said: “LiveU has always been at the forefront of broadcast technology. With 5G rolling out rapidly across major cities worldwide, we’re more committed than ever to stay ahead of the game. Our new LU600 5G solution with integrated 5G modems takes full advantage of the faster speeds and guaranteed high bandwidth provided by next-generation 5G networks.”
Supporting worldwide 5G cellular frequencies, the LU600 5G enables users to enjoy all the benefits of the new networks, including lowest delay, the highest video quality and resolution, and fast file uploads, even in congested areas. The super-low latency enabled by 5G is particularly beneficial for live 4K sports productions. High-quality coverage continues seamlessly where 5G is not available, for example in rural areas or during network build-out. If the live production crosses into non-5G areas, the LiveU unit automatically bonds the available networks supporting any combination of 3G/4G/5G modems.
Wasserman continued: “In parallel, we’re working closely with leading telecom operators worldwide to validate our equipment with emerging 5G networks to make maximum use of the bandwidth and other benefits. We’ve already seen how cellular bonding has largely replaced satellite transmission for live news coverage. With the power of 5G, the potential is even larger for every type of live sports production.”
