Dejero is demonstrating its latest innovations in bonded cellular technology that utilise mobile wireless networks to transmit high-quality video for electronic newsgathering (ENG) at IBC this year. The Dejero LIVE+ platform offers powerful capabilities for improving broadcasters' ability to deliver primary and supplemental live video feeds from the field, at a reduced cost and with greater efficiency and ease of use.
The platform includes the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter, a portable and rugged bonded cellular transmitter for a wide variety of ENG applications; the LIVE+ NewsBook software that brings cellular transmission capabilities to laptop or personal computers; and the LIVE+ Mobile App for popular smartphones.
Also appearing for the first time at IBC, the Dejero + Nucomm Connect Live transmitter is a next-generation camera-mounted bonded cellular and microwave system for electronic newsgathering (ENG). This complete hybrid solution offers news organisations a highly flexible and powerful adjunct to traditional satellite and microwave links for acquiring high-quality video and covering breaking news from the field. The result of a joint technology and product partnership between Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT) and Dejero, the new Connect Live system is a versatile SD/HD live-news wireless camera system that showcases innovation from both companies.
Another product is the Dejero LIVE+ VSET, a 1U vehicle-mount bonded wireless transmitter designed for use in satellite and microwave trucks. The adaptive bitrate encoder on Dejero's LIVE+ VSET reduces the latency and improves the reliability of satellite video feeds. For instance, during rain fade and other atmospheric conditions that cause Ka-band satellite bandwidth to decrease, the Dejero LIVE+ VSET will automatically pick up the drop in bandwidth by transmitting over the cellular networks. Even in ideal conditions when the bulk of data is being sent over satellite, the LIVE+ VSET takes advantage of the lower latency of a cellular connection to deliver an overall decrease in latency on the entire Ka-band system.
