Offering seamless integration into existing workflows and headends, extremely low power consumption, high MTBF, and unparalleled mobility, the DMNG system is used by tier-1 broadcasters in more than 60 countries for breaking news and live events coverage.

NEW! DMNG Manager Live Video Contribution Platform
At IBC2014, AVIWEST will launch the DMNG Manager, a new server application that enables broadcasters and video professionals to monitor and manage an entire fleet of DMNG equipment including DMNG transmitters, smartphones using the DMNG App, and DMNG Studio receivers.

Through an intuitive, Web-based user interface, which can be installed through either a cloud-based application or a headend solution, operators can easily allocate resources and route live video content for transmission over 3G/4G cellular wireless, WiFi, Ethernet, and satellite networks. The DMNG Manager also includes geolocation capabilities for easy identification of the exact location of each transmission. By dramatically streamlining digital mobile newsgathering operations, the DMNG Manager provides broadcasters and other video professionals with significant time and cost savings.


At IBC2014, AVIWEST will showcase the DMNG App that turns any smartphone into a live broadcast video camera. Designed with ease of use in mind, the DMNG App allows any Android- or iOS-based smartphone user to transmit video content in just seconds. Using the DMNG App, video professionals can stream high-quality, live video content via WiFi and 3G/4G-LTE networks or transmit prerecorded video files from anywhere in the world to the DMNG Studio back to the station. Fully integrated into the DMNG ecosystem, the application can be remotely controlled through AVIWEST's DMNG Manager, enabling organizations to effectively manage a large fleet of smartphones.

AVIWEST will show an enhanced Android version of the DMNG App featuring integrated 3G/4G, WiFi bonding, and superior performance. A state-of-the-art iOS version will also be on display.


At IBC2014, AVIWEST will demonstrate significant enhancements to the DMNG PRO series, the world's most advanced, compact, and portable 3G/4G video uplink product line. A key highlight will be the DMNG PRO's new dynamic resolution capability, designed to help broadcasters address changes in bandwidth availability based on varying network conditions. Leveraging dynamic resolution software, the DMNG PRO adjusts video resolution in real time, based on available bandwidth, enabling broadcasters to deliver a better quality of experience (QoE) to end users.
