LiveU Reliable Transport™, or LRT, is the video and audio protocol developed over the last decade by LiveU. It’s not only a point to point, low latency, high resiliency protocol, but it was built to accommodate the special properties of cellular and LTE networks.
Most importantly, it was built from its inception to support bonding of many connections.
LRT is the power behind all LiveU devices and software, used extensively for video transmission, contribution and backhaul, as well as worldwide video distribution over the public internet.
KEEP YOUR LIVE VIDEO SAFE
Packet Ordering is an absolute requirement with connection bonding. LRT uses numbered packets so that the packets can be re-ordered when they arrive out of order.
DYNAMIC FORWARD ERROR CORRECTION
FEC adds some overhead to the stream to recover lost data faster. LRT automatically varies the FEC parameters based on network conditions.
ACKNOWLEDGE & RESEND
If some packets did not arrive, it informs the streaming engine to resend needed data. By acknowledging large groups of packets at a time, LRT uses less latency.
ADAPTIVE BITRATE ENCODING
As bandwidth conditions change, LRT automatically informs the video encoder to adapt the bit rate of video to keep the best possible stream within any given moment.
