Multi-function field unit for production-level live news and sports coverage
The LU800 enhances your production quality and covers more events at a cost far lower than via traditional transmission methods.
This field unit incorporates LiveU’s breakthrough technologies, providing ‘all-in-one’ capabilities for live news and dynamic sports coverage. You get multi-camera functionality, superior video/audio capabilities and mission-critical transmission in a native 5G unit.
Multi-camera access lets you enrich your Remote At-Home Production (REMI) setups. A single portable unit supports up to four high-res, fully frame-synced feeds and uses powerful IP bonding of up to 14 connections.
If you’re in a bandwidth-challenged location, send only one high-quality feed and then switch from the unit or the remote studio.
