At TwitchCon San Diego 2019, the LiveU team setup a live studio production on our booth; streaming for 8 hours a day, for 3 days straight. The compact studio setup fit in a small suitcase, allowing us to take it on the road and setup a live studio production from anywhere. How did we do it?
Cellular bonding has made it possible for news stations and sports broadcasters to produce some of the most powerful live moments on TV in recent years. In fact, you already watched hundreds of "live shots" on TV that were contributed over cellular bonding, you just never knew it!
When planning a live show from outside my studio, it’s important to anticipate the challenges I may face in the field and pack accordingly. I want to make sure I bring the best of the best live streaming equipment. You are probably reading this and thinking, “Great, I just need to get the gear and I’m set to go live from anywhere.”
Tabletop gaming - especially Role Playing Games - is experiencing a serious resurgence - and more and more people want to share their games with players and audiences around the world by live streaming. As a child of the 80’s, playing Dungeons and Dragons around my kitchen table, I lived for the adventures, challenges, battles, and camaraderie with my fellow PCs (that's Player Characters for the uninitiated).
Facebook's newest feature is now supported in the Solo Portal!
Here, I’ve broken down what this latest release means for you. And remember, you can visit our support page for more information and details any time!

Hi! I'm Luis... a Solo Specialist, which means I am on the front lines speaking with customers and answering their live streaming questions daily. Today I thought I’d share one of the most frequently asked questions I get, “Can you use Solo for a multiple camera shoot?” Although Solo uses a single connection (HDMI or SDI) and is typically used with one camera source for one stream, you can use Solo for a multiple camera shoot. How? Solo provides the same video transport and reliable bandwidth, whether you are taking a feed directly from a single camera or a produced feed from a switcher.
The New Portal is LIVE! Get more from your LiveU Solo
So you know you need to stream to Facebook Live and all you know is that if you use your phone to do it, it's going to look as bad as the last few streams you've tried. Bad because last time the sound was terrible. Bad because every time you moved, the lighting changed, and worse, your last stream completely failed because EVERYONE was using their cell phones too. Ugh.
Surviving bad weather, blackouts and missing gear
Let me preface this by saying, I am not a paid LiveU sponsor, but I do love their products! We’ve collaborated on several projects so when the opportunity to help produce their live shows during CES came along, I jumped at the chance.
