The company will be demonstrating a range of innovative EcoSystem partner integrations and connectivity solutions in this key election and sports year

Hackensack, NJ, April 11th, 2024 LiveU will be demonstrating its latest technical collaborations and connectivity solutions at the upcoming 2024 NAB Show (South Hall Lower booth #SL5105), highlighting the LiveU EcoSystem’s IP-Positive architecture for story-centric workflows. Building on its existing collaborations, the integrated solutions with EcoSystem partners are being implemented worldwide in this pivotal year for elections and international sports events.

The LiveU IP-video EcoSystem, underpinned by LiveU’s LRT™ (LiveU Reliable Transport) protocol, is adaptable and open to third-party providers and other IP protocols, including SRT NDI and SMPTE 2110. In addition to a range of solution updates, new integrations will be on display at this year’s NAB Show, including with Bitcentral, Marshall Electronics, Sony and TAG Video Systems. Other integrations showcased include Dina, Mimir, Dizplai, Tagboard, Marquis and Wolftech.

Other highlights include LiveU’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) ground-to-cloud solution at the AWS West Hall Lobby and booth #W1701 within the AWS newsroom in the cloud demo, featuring a 13-source production with LiveU field units and cloud channels. LiveU will also demonstrate an integration of a Pente Private LTE cellular network with a LU300S encoder and 4K camera mounted on a quadrupedal robot, streaming high-quality live video to the LiveU booth as it roams the exhibition hall.

Gideon Gilboa, CPO, LiveU said, “2024 is set to be a record-breaking year for live production with elections around the world and major sports events, including of course the Paris Games driving unprecedented production workloads. As part of the LiveU EcoSystem, it enables interoperability, adaptability and flexible connectivity, allowing us to provide innovative live production solutions that work seamlessly with other best-of-breed technologies. Ultimately, it’s all about making it easier for our customers to do what they need to do, producing great content while achieving time and cost savings. By partnering with other vendors on story-centric workflows, we enable our customers to offer cross platform, linear and digital news products, increase collaboration among their editorial teams and become more efficient.”

The demos include:

  • Bitcentral’s Core News Production suite is integrated tightly with the LiveU Ingest automatic recording and story metadata tagging solution. Using LiveU Ingest to record everything automatically or selectively, customers can efficiently pick the relevant stories, then trim and push the recorded content into Core New’s Oasis system together with the detailed metadata information.

  • Marshall Electronics HD-SDI based broadcast-quality cameras with reliable video signals, compatible with all LiveU field encoders. Marshall’s small-sized and miniature cameras can be easily included in portable kits with an affordable price point for procurement at large volumes. An essential part of global broadcast, sports and professional AV workflows, Marshall cameras are also favored by the public safety market, with their small size suitable for covert operations.

  • Sony is showing the seamless integration between its ENG cameras and LiveU’s portable video encoders as a partner in Sony’s cloud production platform, Creators’ Cloud ecosystem.
