Dejero and Dazzl collaboration implements cloud-based live production for Alpine races
Dejero and Dazzl partnership has simplify cloud-based live production and their collaboration has aleready gave their first project: the coverage of two challenging high-profile alpine races, Dynastar X3 Courchevel Triathlon 2021 and Torgon Trail 2021. This production was uninterrupted covered and later aired by local French TV station TV8 Mont-Blanc.
Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology creates a resilient internet connection by aggregating multiple networks into a single service. Latency has been as low as 0.8 seconds in high-quality live transmission. Footage of both events was capture with all types of equipment, including drones, Lumix GH5 cameras, an iPad filming a TV set, smartphones running the Dazzl application along the race, and low-latency Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter technology connecting to Dazzl via a Dejero Cloud Server. These sources were streamed over RTMP to the Dazzl cloud server for use by the TV8 Mont-Blanc producer. Three live streams were created: two high-quality and the other one in low quality for distribution over Vimeo, YouTube and TV8 Mont-Blanc’s linear TV channel.
“Combining Dazzl and Dejero eliminates the need for a traditional control room with a lot of wiring and installation. The combination makes it possible for broadcasters to deliver a quality livestream with a lot of possibilities, including very welcome network stability. Our live footage was watched by more than 100,000 people over a combination of digital and linear platforms, so this weekend was a real success for us”, said Pierre Boucaud, president of TV8 Mont-Blanc.
TV8 Mont-Blanc was able to navigate this challenge credited to the Dejero EnGo 260 mobile transmitter and Dazzl’s mobile apps. Thanks of that, viewers were able to enjoy every second of each event over numerous platforms.
