From here the live signal can be routed to an Encompass facility and uplinked through their comprehensive satellite and fiber networks to the required destination and or to a CDN for OTT distribution.

The cloud based Dejero LIVE+ Control also provides Encompass operators with a digital dashboard to view and manage all of the EnGo transmitters in the field. With a map based Geolocator Encompass can see where all the units are in real time and have full remote control of the units in the field allowing Encompass technicians to adjust settings and troubleshoot issues so the camera crew can focus on capturing the best content. The dashboard also provides a customizable grid of low latency video thumbnails from the units for confidence monitoring as well as a variety of analytics including data rates important when using data over bonded cellular phone networks.
