The LU300 is a small-sized, cost-effective and reliable HEVC encoder, enabling broadcasters and other content creators to transmit high-quality video on-the-go.
With LiveU’s professional-grade hardware HEVC technology at its core, the LU300 combines high-quality video performance with extreme bandwidth efficiency. Content creators 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 LU300 HEVC offers greatly improved video quality.
Unlike software HEVC solutions, the LU300 can encode in HEVC format at all times, operating in real-time with extreme low latency. The LU300 offers longer battery time with a three hour internal battery. Weighing just over 900 grams 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 copies of the live video after live sessions. 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.
Its new design offers an enlarged 2.2” display with improved resolution, dramatic improvement in visibility under sunlight conditions and a new JOG controller for easier control. Additional enhancements include a stronger CPU for super-fast file upload.
