LiveU IBC 2019

Since the acquisition of LiveU earlier this year by a private equity firm, LiveU’s mission to enable content creators to move their pictures around the world is alive and well. The acquisition will help them grow at pace into the 65 countries they are yet to crack. With 3,000 customers it will only be a matter of time!

The LiveU stand was continuously busy over the weekend. With a glass cased wall on the edge of the stand highlighting the entire range of Live IP Video Solutions, all the way to 5G, 4K HEVC. Their latest LU600 5G (not released yet) can now use 5G SIMs. The good news is you can fit five 5G modems while having four 4G devices and they are backwards compatible.  Allowing you to use them while 5G gets rolled out. This will certainly change the landscape of sending high quality with low latency at a busy event or in a congested area.

The customers already on the LiveU eco system are all talking about LiveU Matrix. It’s LiveU’s latest distribution platform, which gives affiliates of the Live network access to each other’s feeds and also allows the owner of a Matrix to easily send their chosen feed to multiple destinations. Something we’ve been waiting a while for.

So in short, LiveU are still listening to their customers and their innovation won’t stop until they’re in every country in the world!
