IP connectivity solutions for electronic newsgathering (ENG) and remote broadcasting
At IBC2016, Dejero will be showcasing the latest enhancements to its LIVE+ Control management system that simplifies the task of broadcasting live from remote locations and transporting recorded content to broadcast facilities over bonded IP networks including cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet or satellite. The latest updates enhance monitoring, station administration, and reporting capabilities, displaying real-time analytics of network connection performance, and overall transmission quality for each Dejero transmitter.
These updates to the Dejero LIVE+ Control management system go hand in hand with the recent release of version 4.0 of the company’s LIVE+ Core software that powers its industry leading mobile transmitters, servers, and smartphone and notebook apps. This major new software release is making its IBC debut this year and has added significant new capabilities to the LIVE+ platform of products including an enhanced congestion control algorithm and faster transport of files.
In a related IBC2016 first, Dejero will also be showing off its collaboration with Grass Valley, which sees its LIVE+ Control embedded into the GV STRATUS video production and content management system. This allows users to move recorded clips from a LIVE+ Broadcast Server to the STRATUS Express server. Files are automatically transcoded to the desired format for previewing and use. Working together, Dejero and Grass Valley are simplifying the overall file-based workflow to meet the needs of news production.
Visitors to IBC2016 will also see the first European demonstrations of the convenient SIM module and new modem module for LIVE+ EnGo, Dejero’s compact mobile transmitter with simplified connectivity options, expanded roaming solutions and enhanced carrier services. Ideal for broadcast journalists and news crews reporting from breaking news situations or live events from around the world, LIVE+ EnGo encodes IP video and bonds all available networks, including cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and satellite, to deliver exceptional picture quality with extremely low latency.
“Dejero has turned industry hype about ‘IP’ and ‘the cloud’ into reality by providing broadcasters with the tools that help them do their jobs better, faster and more cost-effectively, without compromising quality and immediacy,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “We are also proving – through key partnerships – that our technologies can be integrated with other innovators to create best-of-breed IP solutions.”
From SDI to IP
Earlier this year, Dejero joined the newly formed Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) which was created and is run by leading technology providers to encourage the adoption of open standards and interoperability as the broadcast and media industry transitions from SDI to IP.
“Dejero has always advocated for and is a firm believer in the adoption of open standards and our presence at IBC2016 will demonstrate our belief in interoperability and open APIs to help accelerate the transition to IP and cloud technologies,” concluded Cram.
