Sky News Goes Live to U.K. Television From Reporter's iPhone® in China
Last month, Sky News cameraman Andy Portch and correspondent Mark Stone used the iPhone to deliver a live video interview from the center of a censorship protest in Guangzhou, China. The Dejero LIVE+ Mobile App transmitted the video in real time over a 3G cellular connection to television viewers in the U.K. The solution and support were supplied to Sky News by Dejero's exclusive U.K. distributor, IDX Technology Europe.
"Our technology enables journalists to be first on a news scene and bring high-quality live footage back to their viewers that would have been impossible to capture before," said Bogdan Frusina, chief technology officer at Dejero. "We are thrilled to be the technology behind Sky's groundbreaking broadcast."
Dejero's LIVE+ Mobile App gives broadcasters the ability to transmit high-quality live or recorded video from an iOS device. It uses the same patent-pending bonded transmission technology as Dejero's flagship product, the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter. The app aggregates bandwidth from both the WiFi™ and cellular connections of the device, resulting in a higher-quality live video transmission with lower latency than a single connection can provide. The app can transmit live or recorded HD or SD video using both the phone's front and rear cameras during a single broadcast, enabling reporters to set up and shoot a breaking news story without the need for a satellite truck, camera operator, or broadcast equipment.
Dejero, based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, expands newsgathering capabilities and redefines live broadcasting through its portable LIVE+ Platform of cellular newsgathering products. Dejero LIVE+ products enable both traditional and online broadcasters to transmit high-quality HD or SD live video from a variety of mobile devices, including professional-grade rugged transmitters, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Dejero LIVE+ products can be set up anywhere in seconds to broadcast live to television viewers, stream to the Web, transmit recorded video for later use, share video content with other organizations, or send files remotely. Innovative engineering from wireless experts combined with input from experienced broadcasters have produced the Dejero LIVE+ Platform.
