LiveU will be presenting its portfolio of 5G-enabled solutions for live newsgathering and sports coverage at its stand 3.B62 at the IBC2019 show in Amsterdam this September.

LiveU is gearing up to support hundreds of customers with its HEVC technology at the 2020 games in Tokyo.

The company’s IBC highlights include a range of solutions.

On display will be LiveU’s flagship LU600 4K HEVC portable transmission solution offers video with bandwidth efficiency.

The LU600’s HEVC 4K-SDI edition facilitates professional 4Kp50/60 streaming for production, supporting VR and 360 applications.

Another solution that will be showcased at IBC includes the LU300 HEVC unit for live streaming. The LU300 HEVC solution is tailored to customers requiring a smaller field unit for video-on-the-go. Promising high flexibility, the LU300 can also serve as a standalone video encoder or be used as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot for general connectivity in the field.

The company will demo the 1U 4K HEVC rackmount, LU610 4K HEVC customised for vehicles and fixed locations. This encoder, based on LiveU’s LU600 4K HEVC technology, offers the perfect hybrid solution for SNG trucks, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint distribution.

Live U will be showcasing their Remote At-Home Production applications for sports and live event producers as well.

These include apps such as the Tally Light which promises to bring the ease of the live studio experience to the field and enable field reporters to know instantly when they’re live on air via a red-light indicator connected to a LiveU unit.

Also on display will be LiveU Graphics which is a cloud production tool for adding graphics to live streams. Users can select from ready-to-use graphic templates or create their own design and stream directly to any social media or CDN; the AV sync and support for up to 8 audio channels and the LiveU Control which enables the remote control of LiveU units via smartphones

According to LiveU, the Remote At-Home Production seeks to enable coverage of events with simplified logistics and reduced costs. Multi-camera live events can be produced from a centralised studio control room instead of costly on-site production and satellite trucks.

Some of LiveU’s story-centric solutions based on cloud AI and other technologies will also be on display at IBC.

These include LiveU AI which offers a story-centric AI service for newsgathering. The complete service, powered by Newsbridge, offers a comprehensive set of contribution and AI-based video indexing tools for searching and accessing live or file-based content.

Operating within the LiveU Central cloud management platform, LiveU AI aims to enable editors to search and find their required footage.

LiveU will be demonstrating their new LiveU Central feature, the Single Sign-On (SSO) for secure user management, integrated with the customer’s active directory or Identity as a Service (IDaaS).

The company will be showcasing the LiveU Matrix which is LiveU’s next-generation IP video distribution platform, recently selected by CBS Newspath. Matrix provides a content curation service, that seeks to enable newsroom managers to give hundreds of affiliates access to live feeds from LiveU units in the field and other sources without any interruption, additional resources, or expensive fees. Matrix is also ideal for sports producers looking to live stream events easily and cost-effectively to multiple destinations and TV stations.
