For news networks and stations, LiveU's live broadcasting equipment transforms the digital video acquisition chain into an agile workflow of news gathering. It offers a portable, highly robust uplink system for SD or HD-quality coverage of breaking and local news, and opens multiple opportunities for new types of reporting, for example:
- Live weather and traffic reports from fast-moving vehicles, such as cars, trains, motorcycles, boats, and even helicopters (when local law permits).
- A single reporter or camera operator, outfitted with a video camera and a LiveU backpack, can be dispatched to perimeter areas of an unfolding story to interview eyewitnesses and passersby, cover other emerging sub-plots, or provide live ‘beauty shots’.
LiveU's integrated backpack can also be used inside broadcast trucks and production trucks for big events, for example, giving teams the flexibility to use cost-effectve cellular technology, and digital satellite news gathering only when necessary.
LiveU is the perfect complement to live sporting events, providing a mobile, on-the-spot solution for quick updates, sideline and locker room interviews, crowd shots, pre and post game shows, press briefings, roaming cameras at team events and media days, and more. Broadcasters are also utilizing LiveU for transmitting live games and competitions online, as well as to stadium jumbotrons, and more.
LiveU customers regularly utilize the video broadcast equipment for entertainment events, such as red carpets, premiers, live reality shows, fashion shows, hometown live shots on talk shows, and celebrity coverage. LiveU offers easy live content acquisition to live in-studio TV shows that rely on feeds from the street or remote locations to augment their programming.
Even if you don't require a live feed from the field in every instance, LiveU is ideal for preparing footage on the fly. Edit a take and add graphics in the field on your laptop and then uplink the finished file via FTP utilizing the multiple modems of the LiveU system. Also, you can easily upload large amounts or raw footage for studio editors to process.
