Dejero will be sharing their latest blended connectivity solutions for broadcasters and media organizations at IBC 2018 (RAI Amsterdam, September 14-18, stand 11.C15). Included will be the company's award-winning CellSat solution, the new six modem GateWay router, and its latest mobile transmitter.
Dejero provides cloud-managed solutions that offer video transport and internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations. CellSat connectivity service are available in Europe providing enhanced reliability in situations where cellular networks are congested or cellular coverage is limited. Dejero CellSat now includes a new midstream activation feature, simplifying switching between cellular-only and CellSat transmission paths, without having to stop and restart the transmission. CellSat midstream activation puts greater cost control in the hands of broadcasters when contributing enhanced video content from the field.
Dejero CellSat intelligently blends cellular connectivity from multiple mobile network carriers with Intelsat’s Ku-band IP satellite connectivity to provide the necessary bandwidth on demand to deliver exceptional picture quality and greater reliability while on location. An example of Dejero CellSat's recent use was when it enabled Canada’s Global News and Entertainment Tonight to deliver seven hours of on-location live coverage of the Royal Wedding, during the debut of the service in Europe.
In addition to video transport up to 20 Mb/s with Dejero HEVC-capable encoders, the CellSat connectivity service also enables data transport for applications such as email and internet access. Visitors to the Dejero stand can experience live demos of the award-winning CellSat solution, which can be deployed in newsgathering and field production vehicles, or with compact flyaway antenna systems.
Dejero is also showcasing its new GateWay M6E6 router for high-throughput bidirectional data transport. The router's six embedded modems allows the use of SIMs from a greater number of mobile network providers, resulting in greater carrier diversity, boosting reliability and throughput. Now featuring six Ethernet ports, the GateWay router provides greater flexibility in connecting networking equipment and additional transmission paths, such as satellite.
The GateWay solution allows crews working on location to access their newsroom or media asset management systems, and to quickly send and receive large files, access cloud services, communicate with their colleagues via VoIP, and enables any other application requiring internet access. This robust mobile connectivity solution was recently put through its paces by Team Sky during its victories at the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, where terrain, network congestion and weather has typically presented connectivity challenges.
As the broadcast industry shifts towards the HEVC video compression standard to efficiently transport high quality video from the field, the latest Dejero EnGo is equipped with increased processing power to boost overall performance and deliver enhanced picture quality. Combining Dejero’s auto-transport and adaptive bitrate encoding technology with the newest compression standard, Dejero continues to improve video quality in the mobile transmitter, mountable on a camera, worn in a backpack, or mounted in a vehicle.
Kevin Fernandes, vice president of sales at Dejero said that reliable connectivity is critical for content contribution from the field, supporting more efficient remote production workflows, and enabling emerging workflows in the cloud. They are looking forward to demonstrating the latest video transport and connectivity solutions to visitors at IBC, and discussing how they can help broadcasters and media organizations save time and reduce costs in their connected workflows.
In addition to enhancements to Dejero CellSat, Dejero GateWay and Dejero EnGo, the company will also demonstrate at stand 11.C15 the latest updates and preview upcoming features to Dejero Control, its cloud-based management system.
