LiveU LU70 and LU40 Portable Uplink Solutions

LiveU devices transmit resilient broadcast-quality live video from anywhere without the need for satellite or a wired connection, and substantially improve reliability compared to Wi-Fi or single air card transmission. LiveU bonds together multiple 3G and 4G connections across all major cellular carriers, as well as wifi and LAN where available. The devices can directly transmit live video to your channel from anywhere, even on to move.

The LiveU units receive a video input either directly from a camera or from a switching/recording device. The units are battery or AC operated, and LiveU offers 24/7 phone and email customer support. 

IBM Watson Media customers can rent or lease LiveU units for any type of event or for ongoing usage.
