LiveU Solo SDI/HDMI Encoder Features:
Get outside the studio
Using LiveU's patented reliable transport protocol (LRT) and bonding technology, Solo provides robust connectivity so you never lose a stream even if you are moving through congested or fluctuating environments. And the convenient pouch (included) allows you to clip Solo to your belt or bag and securely holds cellular modems while your are live streaming on the go.
Easy to use interface
Solo is simple to use - set stream destinations in seconds and monitor, manage and control your unit from the Solo Portal, accessible from any web-enabled device. You can also use the front panel of the unit to check cellular connections, add a WiFi source, preview the video stream, monitor bandwidth and battery life as well as start and stop the stream.
Connect any camera source
Solo works with a variety of cameras and sources over HDMI* - from your smartphone (with HDMI adapter - not included) to a DSLR to higher-end cameras and switchers. Now you can share higher quality video content reliably from anywhere.
Access from any web-enabled device
Start, stop and set up new streams and destinations quickly and easily. One-touch integration with popular social media and online destinations such as Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Wowza, and additional service providers such as Switchboard Live, Easy Live, and others!
LiveU LRT Cloud Bonding Annual Service
The LiveU LRT Cloud Bonding Annual Service is a reliable transport protocol and full bonding cloud service for use with LiveU Solo video encoders. Patented cloud bonding and encoding service for maximum bandwidth and ultimate reliability using LiveU Reliable Transport (LRTTM). Delivering content of the highest quality is paramount for broadcasters and content creators alike. That’s where LRT comes in. LiveU’s unique Reliable Transport protocol (LRT™) is at the heart of LiveU products to deliver optimized video performance. LRT™ enables reliable, low delay lives video streaming over non-guaranteed IP networks and ensures reliable transport over the most unreliable of networks, including cellular networks - allowing you to acquire exciting live content in even the most remote locations.
LRT uses numbered packets so that the packets can be re-ordered when they arrive out of order. Packet Ordering is an absolute requirement with connection bonding, where data usually arrives in a different order than intended.
Dynamic Forward Error Correction
Forward Error Correction (FEC) adds some overhead to the stream to recover lost data faster. LRT automatically varies the FEC parameters based on monitored network conditions.
Acknowledge and Resend
LRT can acknowledge large groups of packets if they all arrived. If some did not arrive, it can inform the streaming engine to resend needed data. By acknowledging large groups of packets at a time, LRT uses less overhead and latency. Unlike UDP, LRT gives a complete feedback loop so the user knows that the data is arriving correctly.
Adaptive Bit Rate Encoding
As the bandwidth condition changes, LRT automatically recognizes this and informs the video encoder to allow it to adapt the bit rate of video it is delivering and keep the best possible stream within the available bandwidth at any given moment.
