The LU500. Smaller. Stronger.

Category Intro Voiceover The LU500 is the most powerful, yet lightweight video transmission unit in the history of cellular bonding. It offers all the capabilities of its much larger predecessors and much more, yet in a very small and versatile device. This video will offer a quick start guide for operating the unit. Ready? Ok, lets go! To power up the unit, hold down the white power button. The unit will power up and automatically connect all the cellular modems in about a minute. The status indicator will change from offline to Ready once the modems are connected. Piece of cake. First, lets select a destination server, also known as a Channel . Tap the options arrow at the bottom of the screen, and then Channels. Setting up servers, channels, and user groups, and switching between preview and live outputs can be done on the LiveU Central management console via any browser on a computer or tablet. Now choose your delay by hitting Profiles. For live shots select Live and then your desired latency. For live interviews we recommend between 1-2 seconds of delay. In areas with difficult cellular signal, for feeding footage, or for web shows, we recommend to increase latency as much as possible, up to 20 seconds, in order to improve resiliency and quality. You can also choose Store and Forward, which will record the video on the unit and automatically transmit it at full quality once bandwidth is available. 5. Central 6. Video input 7. 8. 8b.
