LiveU’s new mobile app solution, LU-Smart, allows LiveU customers to extend their live video coverage from the field using an iPhone or iPad. Based on LiveU’s fourth-generation bonded uplink technology, the LU-Smart bonds internal Wi-Fi and cellular connections, including 3G/4G LTE, to reach optimal video quality. As operators can combine available networks to support connection to an external MiFi, the bonding of two cellular connections becomes possible in a single smartphone. This way users can use the phones’ internal 3G/4G and an external 3G/4G simultaneously for a very fast uplink.
The bonded 3G/4G and WiFi networks allow for 5 Mbps upload with 2 sec latency. Under the usual LiveU reliable video protocol, the phone used as a camera on spot may be controlled with remote access while it can still work in Forward Error Correction mode. The application is characterized by CDN/SDI connectivity, a simplified GUI with camera view and the operation is backed up by an internal Flash control.
