Garland will showcase LiveU’s new LU500 Series, the ultimate combination of high performance and portability for cellular uplinking.

Powered by LiveU’s multi-processor video encoding engine and weighing around 700g (25oz), The LU400 represents a highly cost-effective, portable and robust HD video uplink device and is available in various configurations including belt-clip or camera-mount.


The LU400 offers a wide range of features and capabilities for live news gathering, including: low latency for interview-mode; store and forward; file transfer (FTP); video and audio indicators; under one minute boot-up time and the ability to control the unit from its touch screen, the server or from any web-enabled device.
