Dejero Introduces Signal Booster for News Vehicles

Latest Member of Dejero LIVE+ Family Significantly Improves Transmission Performance for Breaking News Coverage

At the 2014 NAB Show, Dejero will introduce the Dejero LIVE+ Booster, a high-reach connection and signal booster for bonded uplink transmissions. The LIVE+ Booster is the newest member of Dejero's LIVE+ family of news vehicle solutions. It is a vehicle-mounted device that uses an array of up to 10 high-gain antennas, enabling mobile news crews to extend their connection reception during difficult transmission scenarios, such as transmitting from crowded areas where cellular networks are overloaded or in low-coverage areas.

"A newsroom's ability to cover live, breaking news as it happens can be a key differentiator in competitive markets," said Brian Cram, CEO, Dejero. "Our new Dejero LIVE+ Booster helps news crews get the live shot, even in poor cell coverage conditions. By simply plugging a Dejero LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter into the LIVE+ Booster, a news crew can turn their news vehicle into one large antenna for the best-possible resilient connection."

Paired with the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter, the LIVE+ Booster provides a powerful alternative to traditional satellite or microwave transmissions. Both devices can be powered up and ready to transmit low-latency, broadcast-quality video in seconds, making them ideal in breaking news situations that require the team to be immediately mobile. A vehicle can broadcast live while on the move; in a recent example, a news crew provided continuous, live coverage while reporting weather and traffic conditions in a blizzard.


Back in the newsroom, operators can access the Dejero LIVE+ Portal, the company's easy-to-use online interface, to manage and configure the LIVE+ Booster and LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter. The LIVE+ Booster supports bonding of up to six LTE network connections and requires nominal power from a 100V to 240V AC inverter in the vehicle.
