LiveU Solo Helps Huffington Post Live Stream HD Content

News Image
LiveU has created a new 'plug and play' live streaming bonding solution that connects automatically to Facebook, enabling broadcasters and content creators to "deliver rock-solid, highly produced video streams".

It follows the opening of the Facebook Live API, which allows brands to live stream video content directly to the social media site using high-quality production equipment.

This has been extremely important to broadcasters and video content creators that want to deliver non-stop live video coverage to the Facebook community.

The Huffington Post, a leading global source of breaking news, opinion, entertainment and community, and an early adopter of LiveU Solo, is utilizing the technology to deliver high-quality live video to a wider audience on Facebook.

"At The Huffington Post, we're eager to deliver live streaming to our Facebook audience and have already increased production by seven times in the last month," said Patrick McMenamin, Supervising Producer at The Huffington Post.

"LiveU Solo has helped us become one of the first outlets to stream high-definition video direct to Facebook. We've used LiveU in the field to stream HD video in our primary campaign coverage and high-profile interviews, as well as our popular Game of Thrones after-show chat."

"Broadcasters and online video content creators are looking to differentiate their content by delivering live quality streams, maintaining reliable connectivity, and sharing it with the world seamlessly. This can be accomplished with LiveU Solo," LiveU Co-founder & COO, Avi Cohen, added.

"The Huffington Post has seen tremendous success in live streaming. They understand that live streaming content connects audiences to high-quality video on-the-fly."

Optimized for online video performance, Solo delivers the rock-solid video streams LiveU is known for by using LiveU Reliable Transport (LRT) protocol's integral adaptive bit rate and forward error correction technology.

LiveU Solo connects automatically to Facebook Live, Wowza Streaming Cloud, as well as other popular CDNs, OVPs and YouTube Live, making live video simple. Solo can be managed and controlled remotely via a web interface or smartphone.
