Dejero announces the addition of two new products to support HEVC (H.265) encoding and decoding

Dejero has announced the addition of two new products to support HEVC (H.265) encoding and decoding. Dejero PathWay and Dejero WayPoint enable the use of HEVC video compression in support of remote and mobile broadcasting, a feature that is particularly relevant to on-location teams working with limited bandwidth.

 

“We’re leveraging the efficiencies of HEVC while applying novel techniques such as real-time adaptive bitrate control and our unique auto-transport technology where resolution can be changed on the fly, within the transmission,” explains Bill Nardi, VP broadcast integration and global support at Dejero. “Using HEVC, Dejero can enable video transmission with as little bandwidth as 1 Mb/s, or even less, and still deliver good picture quality.”

 

The first two products to support Dejero’s HEVC technology are the Dejero PathWay rack-mounted encoder/transmitter, and the Dejero WayPoint receiver. The 1U PathWay is designed for installation in vehicles or fixed locations. It’s available in two different configurations: an Ethernet configuration that includes two Ethernet ports for satellite (Ku- and Ka-band, BGAN) or wired IP network (LAN/WAN) connectivity; and an Ethernet and cellular configuration offering up to six cellular connections.

 

PathWay supports both HEVC and AVC (H.264) encoding, providing automatic detection and immediate backwards compatibility with existing or legacy AVC-based Dejero receivers. The encoder/transmitter, which contains internal Wi-Fi, is also compatible with the recently launched Dejero CellSat blended cellular and satellite solution.

 

WayPoint is a four output 1U receiver, that supports HEVC decodes to SDI or IP (MPEG-TS over IP) playout workflows. It also supports AVC decoding of feeds from legacy transmitters. It comes with dual redundant power supplies and data redundant RAID storage capabilities.

 

“By supporting HEVC compression, we can further enhance picture quality when broadcasting with limited bandwidth and deliver a better viewer experience,” concludes Nardi.

 

Both PathWay and WayPoint can be managed centrally from Dejero Control, the company’s cloud-based management system that is accessible from a browser.
