LiveU LU500

Portable Transmission Unit 

– Efficient H.264 encoding 
– Delivering Broadcast-level video quality (up to 12Mbps) 
– Versatile Store and Forward function (up to 10Mbps) 
– Low Transmission Delay of 1 sec, configurable up to 20sec 
– Bonds up to 13 network links, cellular, Wi-Fi and LAN 
– Lightweight, weighing about 1kg only 

The LiveU LU500 is probably the most widely used bonded cellular video uplink system in the world! Utilizing LiveU’s multi-processor encoding engine and antenna modules, the LU500 offers up to 13 network links including 6-8 internal bonded connections portable uplink device that optimizes available bandwidth to deliver broadcast-quality video. For added resiliency in challenging network conditions, the unit can be connected to an Xtender external antenna and to satellite equipment for a hybrid cellular/satellite solution. 


The LU500 can be controlled by a single operator in the field using the touch-screen interface or controlled remotely from any computer using the LiveU Central management portal.
