LiveU Introduces LU70 Mobile Uplink Unit
LAS VEGAS: LiveU, the backpack uplink maker, is rolling out its latest model at the
NAB Show next week. The new LU70 will feature “One-Touch-Live,” or OTL mode,
for automatic adjustment of video resolutions; point-to-multipoint
distribution; up to 10 Mbps throughput and an “instant” Wi-Fi access point,
according to LiveU. The LU70 will also support LiveU's forthcoming H.264 implementation.
The LU70 supports up to 14 cellular
links simultaneously and can automatically swap between internal and external
antennas as needed, according to the network conditions. At NAB, LiveU will exhibit a mobile
newsgathering vehicle with a roof-mounted antenna in conjunction with
Washington D.C.’s WUSA TV station.
