Open-source video platform Kaltura is partnering with portable live video-over-cellular specialist LiveU so that LiveU's live HD video feeds will be imported and transmitted directly to Kaltura's video player and range of video applications.
Customers gain an end-to-end live-to-video-on-demand (VOD) video solution, from ingest to streaming. This includes uploading, transcoding and processing, video management, video publishing, multi-rate video playing, video syndication, monetisation, distribution including over-the-top (OTT), and video editing tools.
"We are seeing a great need for a streamlined flow between live to VOD and on any device; the combination of LiveU and Kaltura provides the optimal solution for the online media industry, enabling us to offer live channels for publishers, sports clubs and other players in this market," said Samuel Wasserman, LiveU's CEO.
LiveU developed and patented the technology for cellular bonding for remote news gathering in the US and other countries. The product portfolio ranges from backpacks and camera-mounted units to external antennas, hybrid vehicle solutions, computer bonding software and smartphone apps.
