It is now launched! We hope you enjoy the new portal, and of course keep your feedback and questions coming!
The LiveU Solo portal user interface has been upgraded and offers a more intuitive and streamlined workflow helping you navigate and complete tasks easily. On May 15 [err um or the 29th!] (Or close to it - we moved this back a bit from the 7th!), we will officially switch over to the new and improved solo portal and the old portal functions will no longer exist. Go to https://solobeta.liveu-rnd.com to get a little preview - you can log in with you existing username and password! But do please keep in mind this is beta - if you have an important stream (not just a test!) we suggest you stick with the production portal located at https://solo.liveu.tv for a bit longer. When the new look and feel goes live, it will again just be a single url at https://solo.liveu.tv.
This enhanced portal is your all in one view to monitor, manage, and control your Solo production. Some of the new features include:
- Bandwidth monitoring
- Managing your subscriptions and payments
- Renaming units
- Preview, setting destinations, and more all from one page
- And you’ll be one of the first to try out our new graphics solution!
New Cloud Graphics:
Solo Graphics is an online service that can overlay animated graphics onto your video. You can use it to include a logo, a lower third, bug such as the word "Live" or your social media address, sports scores, comments, and more. It’s a full-feature graphics app similar to broadcast graphics tools that lets you build a rundown (or playlist) before the show or broadcast starts, and then interactively control that playlist during your broadcast. You start from templates that try to cover some common elements and themes and can customize the text, order, and some elements like colors from this starting point.
We are offering two packages, basic and advanced. Both will have built in templates to work from and come with a set number of hours to stream per month. Advanced, however, will have additional sports focused graphics and allow more customization.
First month will be free so you will get a chance to try it out!
We have also made things even simpler to manage your Solo account and LRT subscription. You now can buy and renew the LRT service directly from the Solo Portal. LRT users will be able to renew annually or pay monthly through the portal but you will need to reenter your method of payment during this transition time. Eventually we will remove the ability to buy LRT from https://shop.liveu.tv.
