External Antenna for Extra-Strong Resiliency in Extreme Scenarios
The LiveU Xtender integrated antenna solution increases network reception, providing additional resiliency for live video transmission in extreme scenarios such as heavily crowded areas. The Xtender offers broadcasters the flexibility to use cellular connectivity as part of their existing SNG/ENG trucks, bonding cellular and satellite connections for ultimate live video performance, or remotely connected to LiveU's backpack and handheld uplink units.
Integrated Solution for SNG/ENG Trucks or Tripod-Mounted
The LiveU Xtender dramatically improves cellular reception, bandwidth, resiliency and latency in every scenario. Based on LiveU’s fourth-generation bonded uplink technology, the integrated solution offers broadcasters the flexibility to use cellular connectivity as part of their existing SNG and ENG trucks, bonding cellular and satellite connections for the ultimate live video performance. Combining LiveU’s LU-Lite encoder on a 1RU rackmount together with LiveU’s powerful Xtender antenna, the solution adds six 3G/4G LTE network connections and is optimized for all emerging 4G LTE implementations worldwide.
In a different configuration, the tripod-mounted Xtender antenna can also be connected to LiveU’s other backpack and handheld units, offering even greater resiliency, performance and flexibility in crowded demonstrations, sports stadiums and other extreme scenarios. With extended wireless connectivity, the Xtender can be situated up to 1,000 feet/300 meters away from the uplink unit, offering far more than a regular cellular antenna.
LiveU's products can be used for either TV or web/mobile transmission. For more information about LiveU's cellular-based uplink architecture, please visit our Technology page.
