LTE wireless for real-time, remote video streaming announced

Verizon, LiveCast build system for media, companies and governments to avoid satellite and microwave

Verizon Wireless and LiveCast Media today announced 4G Mobile Reporter for use with Verizon's LTE network to send live high-definition video wirelessly with a laptop and USB modem.

The 4G Mobile Reporter system is targeted at media services, government agencies and companies that could use real-time video-streaming capabilities from remote locations as a low-cost alternative to using traditional satellite and microwave delivery, the two companies said in an announcement.

The system will work with existing camera equipment to deliver the video feeds with low latency, eliminating the need for satellite trucks. GPS is embedded throughout the stream, allowing a map display next to the video playback. The two companies will demonstrate the system at the Verizon booth at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas this week.

LiveCast provides its Duo software for laptops and a converter device that connects a professional-grade camera to a laptop if HDMI input isn't available. Verizon already sells 4G LTE modems, such as the UML290 and LG VL600, which can be used in the 4G Mobile Reporter system.

The system is backward compatible with the Verizon 3G network.

Pricing was not announced for the entire system, although Verizon already sells the modems and LTE service to business customers, usually based on the number of users.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
