Built-in global roaming capabilities - The LU600 solution now offers a fully integrated hybrid roaming solution for hassle-free local and global operation. With the new dual-SIM modem configured with roaming SIMs, every LU600 can be a local and global unit without needing to replace or obtain local SIMs in over 100 countries worldwide. Combining three key elements - dual-SIMs, global modems and roaming software - the LiveU units are ready to roam instantly.

Video return - targeted for professional broadcasters, this other key product enhancement enables field crews to see what's currently on-air and receive teleprompt information during live sessions.

LiveU's flagship LU600 solution with the HEVC Pro card offers the ultimate video performance in live streaming for global newsgathering and beyond. Combined with the 4K HEVC Pro Card, the LU600 allows professional broadcasters and content creators to benefit from unparalleled video performance with extreme bandwidth efficiency - using one of the smallest portable cellular bonding units in the market.
