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 markets. 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 offers greatly improved video quality.
LiveU's LU600 HEVC product suite offers three configuration to meet customers' specific production needs, including : HD, 4K-HDMI and 4K-SDI. The 4K HEVC solution enables VR and 360 degree applications.
LiveU’s unique Reliable Transport protocol (LRT™) is at the heart of LiveU products to deliver optimized video performance. LRT™ enables reliable, low delay live video streaming over non-guaranteed IP networks and ensures reliable transport over the most unreliable of networks, including cellular networks - allowing you to acquire exciting live content in even the most remote locations.
LRT uses numbered packets so that the packets can be re-ordered when they arrive out of order. Packet Ordering is an absolute requirement with connection bonding, where data usually arrives in a different order than intended.
Forward Error Correction (FEC) adds some overhead to the stream to recover lost data faster. LRT automatically varies the FEC parameters based on monitored network conditions.
LRT can acknowledge large groups of packets if they all arrived. If some did not arrive, it can inform the streaming engine to resend needed data. By acknowledging large groups of packets at a time, LRT uses less overhead and latency. Unlike UDP, LRT gives complete feedback loop so the user knows that the data is arriving correctly.
As the bandwidth condition changes, LRT automatically recognizes this and informs the video encoder to allow it to adapt the bit rate of video it is delivering and keep the best possible stream within the available bandwidth at any given moment.
