LU300 HEVC proofs to be an amazing compact HEVC field unit for on-the-go live streaming

LiveU LiveU

The LU300 is a small-sized, cost-effective and dependable HEVC encoder, empowering broadcasters and other content creators to transmit excellent video on-the-go.

With LiveU’s professional equipment HEVC technology at its core, the LU300 joins top notch video performance with extreme bandwidth efficiency. Content creators can provide similar video quality as H.264 while using about half the bandwidth. In situations where original H.264 bitrate is kept up, the LU300 HEVC offers incredibly improved video quality.  

Unlike software HEVC solutions, the LU300 can encode in HEVC format at all times, allowing users to operate in real-time with extreme low latency and the highest quality, even at very low bitrates. The LU300 offers longer battery time with a three hour internal battery. 

Weighing a little more than 900 grams (2 lbs) and available in a pouch or camera-mount configuration, the LU300 bonds up to six connections: two LTE-Advanced internal modems, two external modems,  WiFi and LAN.  

Live & Store functionality enables users to upload high quality stored copies of the live video immediately after live sessions. Highly flexible, the LU300 can also serve as a standalone video encoder or be utilized as a LiveU DataBridge mobile hotspot for general connectivity in the field. 

With its new design, the LU300 offers an enlarged 2.2” display with improved resolution, dramatic improvement in visibility under sunlight conditions and a new JOG controller for simpler control of the unit. Extra improvements incorporate a more grounded CPU for super-fast file upload.
