LiveU - NAB 2023 - On Site - In Situ - Production Solution - Solución de producción

Attendees at NAB 2023 (Las Vegas, 16-19 April) will be able to discover LiveU’s new on-site production solution designed for sports and event broadcasting.

LiveU’s new on-site production solution aims to “unmatched efficiency at a very cost-effective price point” by offering wireless broadcasting from a mobile unit in a “single click, with no need for a fixed internet connection “. This innovative approach, according to LiveU, is in contrast to traditional multi-camera productions, which are often “expensive and complex to set up”.

LiveU’s solution consists of 5G 4K units and a mobile receiver on the OB. Live video is streamed directly from the units to a local control room that creates a programme feed, so “much of the cost associated with setting up complex, traditionally connected workflows” is avoided. The live streams are then transferred via the public internet and the LU-Link cloud service.

One of the first customers of the new solution, Sam Schrade, president of DNA Studios, reports his experience: “The solution works fantastically and opens up a lot of creative use cases. We used it at Astros Baseball Park as a wireless camera, and even brought it into the depths of the stadium – places RF systems often struggle with. The simple set-up, and not needing a port forwarding requirement in a stadium, is a huge bonus, especially as opening up ports at major league stadiums is next to impossible.”

Gideon Gilboa, LiveU’s Chief Product Officer, highlights the main benefits of this solution, which will be part of NAB 2023: “Remote production is an ideal solution in many cases but for some productions, on-site is still preferred. We wanted to add efficiency to OB productions, in the same way we have with REMI, and give our customers more creative choices. With LiveU’s On-Site Production Solution, the customer doesn’t need to undergo lengthy and costly set-ups, they don’t need network engineers on-site or to spend weeks trying to navigate venue IT protocols. They are free to plan their shots based on the story they want to share with the fans, rather than being constrained by line-of-site or cables. Ultimately the solution makes the benefits of ‘on-site’ available to productions where it would have been cost prohibitive before.”
