NOS & Nieuwsuur verslaan de Amerikaanse presidentiële verkiezingen met LiveU

Terwijl super storm Sandy aan de Amerikaanse oostkust flink wat schade heeft aangericht, zijn ook de presidentiële verkiezingen nog steeds in volle gang. Eerder deze maand heeft Tom Kleijn van Nieuwsuur al een roadtrip door diverse staten gemaakt. De achtergrondrapportages van deze trip werden daarbij afgewisseld met live kruisgesprekken tussen Tom en Hilversum. Een van deze gesprekken vond zelfs plaats vanuit een rijdende auto. Voor al deze live gesprekken werd gebruik gemaakt van LiveU, een portable live video-over-cellular uplink solution die is geleverd door Heynen. Eelco Bosch van Rosenthal is de vaste Amerika correspondent voor de NOS. Sinds oktober doet hij in diverse NOS Journaals regelmatig live verslag van de verkiezingsstrijd tussen Obama en Romney. Ook hierbij wordt gebruik gemaakt van een door Heynen geleverde LiveU LU70 backpack. De afgelopen dagen was hij in Atlantic City voor meer verslagen maar dan voornamelijk over super storm Sandy. De komende week zal hij weer diverse live bijdrages gaan leveren vanuit Washington in de aanloop naar de aanstaande verkiezingen op 6 november. Na de eerste uitzending van Tom’s roadtrip is de oplossing zelfs tijdens NCRV’s Lunch! Op Radio 1 besproken. In het Media Forum liet Bert van de Veer weten nog even aan een Ivo Niehe truc te hebben gedacht totdat eindredacteur Ed Ribbink van Nieuwsuur uitleg kwam geven over LiveU. Naast Eelco en Tom zal ook Wouter Zwart de komende week met een LiveU verslag doen van de verkiezingen voor NOS. Volg alle drie de verslaggevers via Nieuwsuur en de diverse NOS Journaals.

No More Boundaries | NOMOBO B.V. uses first Dutch LU40 to

stream live video from anywhere in the World!

During this years’ IBC in Amsterdam, LiveU announced a complete new product range of live video

uplink solutions with the LU light series that contains smartphone-, tablet- and laptop applications.

Earlier this year the LU70 was already introduced by LiveU as the successor of the popular LU60. This

introduction was accompanied by the completely new and simplified, but nevertheless very effective,

LU40.

When No More Boundaries | NOMOBO B.V. was looking for a reliable, broadcast quality solution that

is able to handle harsh network conditions to support their wordwide live video streaming services,

they tested the LU40 during Ultra Music Dance Festival from Seoul, Korea - together with LiveU’s

Dutch Distributor Heynen. After this extensive test No More Boundaries | NOMOBO B.V. concluded

that the LU40 was exactly what they are looking for, praising the high quality video transmissions that

are made possible thanks to LiveU’s adaptive bit rate technology and unique error correction

mechanisms.

This all led NOMOBO into being the first Dutch company to adapt the LU40 platform. And with

success, as it already gave them the possibility to support some prestigious projects including the Vrij

Festival event during Amsterdam Dance Event where acts as Junkie XL, Pretty Lights, Yonder Boy

and Eelke Kleijn were streamed live to the Samsung Galaxy branded YouTube channel.

In addition to this NOMOBO is also responsible for the live video streams that the Dutch soccer

federation (KNVB) publishes on YouTube and Ustream. But with the LU40, NOMOBO can also

accommodate interviews, (product) presentations, seminars, concerts, sport and music events and

many of these are already planned for the upcoming months.

No More Boundaries | NOMOBO B.V. is a young innovative company that is founded and managed by

Constantijn van Duren, Jeroen Bos en Robert Buisman. This team of experienced producers has a

huge amount of expertise and considerable reputation in the field of online television and broadcast

production. In addition to services such as video production, media distribution and channel

development the NOMOBO team are true experts in creating high quality live streaming events for

organizations and brands.

Heynen works as distributor and system integrator with first class vendors of professional media

processing tools such as digital mixing consoles, audio and video codecs and broadcast LCD screens

to support broadcasters in the BeNeLux region.

LiveU techniek

LiveU is a pioneer in portable video-over-cellular technology, addressing all demands for full HD or SD quality,

resiliency, availability, mobility and sub-second latency in a highly innovative technological solution. Our core

technology is based on cutting-edge adaptive algorithms which combine cellular communications and video

encoding.

The LiveU solution bonds up to 14 cellular (3G/4G – LTE/WiMAX) modems over multiple carriers, as well as

multiple LAN and even BGAN satellite connections. This creates a reliable, broadband video uplink pipe over

multiple narrow-band pipes. Using any camera, the fully-integrated self-powered compact unit provides video

resolution ranging from CIF through D1 (SD) and up to 1080i HD. The bonded 3G/4G solution aggregates all

data connections simultaneously to achieve high bandwidth and smooth transmission, even as bandwidth and

signal levels change across the different connections.

LiveU was the first company to integrate 4G LTE links into its cellular-bonding solutions. Since September 2010,

LiveU LTE solutions have been deployed in several commercial LTE networks, such as in Scandinavia and the

US. While single modem video delivery devices might suffer from performance fluctuations, loss of transmission

or inability to go live, LiveU's multi-link solutions allow broadcasters and online video professionals to enjoy the

benefits of both the 4G and 3G worlds.

High Quality Video Transmission

LiveU has developed several advanced proprietary algorithms that enable resilient high quality video transmission

over the ever-fluctuating multiple cellular networks. Among these are:

• Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) of the H.264 video encoder.

This mechanism adapts the video encoding rate continuously according to the changing network conditions.

Taking into considerations the continuous real-time measurements of the performance of every available link, the

user’s resolution and latency requirements, cellular channel behavior and other parameters, ABR reduces or

increases the H.264 video encoding rate. The result: a real time video rate adaptation mechanism that optimizes

the encoding process on-the-fly.

• Error handling mechanisms:

In wireless and cellular environments, packet loss and errors are common inherent phenomena. LiveU has been

developing proprietary error-handling mechanisms specifically adapted to these phenomena and to the unique

paradigm of aggregation of multiple links. Adaptive and predictive Forward Error Correction (FEC), Error

Concealment and Error Recovery mechanisms at the video application level complement each other and are

employed as needed for each specific operation conditions.

LiveU provides sub-second latency for interviews and highly resilient profiles for live transmission from fast-

moving vehicles (cars, trains, motorcycles, boats, and even helicopters). We also offer high-speed File Transfer

mode (FTP) over the aggregated bandwidth.
