Dejero LIVE+: Mobile Transmission Services and Support in Brazil
Both the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter and the LIVE+ Mobile App give videojournalists the ability to encode and transmit broadcast-quality video directly over LTE, 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet connections from locations that are impractical for traditional news vehicles to access. The LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter is a rugged and portable bonded wireless system that can be easily transported from venue to venue, and the LIVE+ Mobile App is installed on the reporter’s mobile device. Both are ideal for capturing news reports and “color” footage such as interviews with players, team training sessions, and enthusiastic fans entering and leaving the arenas.
In addition, Dejero provided Brazilian SIM cards for each transmitter and mobile device, and provided in-country technical support to ensure that each transmission is a success. The broadcasters’ master control personnel had access to the cloud-based Dejero LIVE+ Portal to manage and control transmitters, monitor transmission health, and manage the distribution of content on air and online.
“All eyes were on Brazil in anticipation of the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world. This was the latest in a long series of global sports events, including the Sochi Winter Games and London Summer Games, in which some of the world’s top-tier broadcasters took advantage of our transmission services,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “We’ were looking forward to playing a major role in helping broadcasters capture the excitement of the matches, and we did it with greater flexibility and at a fraction of the cost of traditional satellite and microwave transmissions.”
From video capture and transmission to management and distribution, Dejero solutions help broadcasters, media companies, and organizations of all sizes reach their global multiscreen audiences instantly and cost-effectively. Dejero’s LIVE+ Platform simplifies the acquisition and broadcast of live video on-air and online through a broad range of traditional and emerging uplink solutions. The platform, including portable transmitters and software for laptops and smartphones, intelligently manages or bonds wireless connections (3G/4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, microwave, and satellite) to deliver optimal picture quality. In addition, customers are able to centrally monitor and manage Dejero devices and live feeds in the cloud for streamlined content delivery and enhanced operational efficiency. Dejero is privately held and based in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
