Taking advantage of next-generation wireless technology

LiveU is at the forefront of 5G technology for the broadcast industry. The company’s new LU800 production-grade field unit has been designed from the ground up to unlock 5G potential. The LU800 combines multi-camera production and superior video and audio capabilities with mission-critical transmission in a native 5G unit.


LiveU’s successful live 5G broadcasts with leading US, APAC and European cellular providers, together with our ongoing participation in EU 5G collaborative projects, have strengthened our knowledge and expertise in this field, enabling us to enhance our algorithms and solutions accordingly.

5G or the fifth generation of connectivity is starting to be deployed worldwide, where leading carriers have already started implementing commercial 5G services with plans for rapid broadband internet and mobility services.

Bonding will remain a critical resiliency technique, for example during build-out, in remote areas and where 5G falls back to existing frequencies. Cross-company bonding will also be important in cases of network failure or to ensure network coverage with performance depending on users’ proximity to cellular towers and antennas.

harnessing 5g

LiveU is proud to be a technology and use case partner in key EU Horizon 2020 5G research projects. The 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) projects aim to provide the broadcast community and other verticals with insights into 5G performance in real-world scenarios. The projects involve testing and validating content contribution and media production use cases over advanced 5G Release 16 testbeds. Participants include some of the largest cellular operators and cellular equipment manufacturers, broadcasters, non-media verticals partners, as well as AI and other technology partners, researchers and academics.

5G collaboration

LiveU is a proud partner in five EU 5G collaborative research and validation projects. Our latest projects include 5G-RECORDS, which aims to explore the opportunities that new 5G technology components bring to the professional production of audiovisual content, and COPA EUROPE, which aims to address the exploding demand for non-linear sports consumption (live and eSports) by leveraging Over the Top (OTT) sports media services and combining them with new set of media technologies. LiveU is also actively involved in: 5G Solutions (LiveU also serves as the leader of the Media Leaving Lab and Work Package) and 5G-Tours, where LiveU and its partners test and analyze media applications and 5G performance KPIs, including bonded video contribution use cases. LiveU previously participated in the 5G-Xcast project, which focused on Broadcast and Multicast Communication Enablers for the Fifth Generation of Wireless Systems.
