Dejero has added a new remote control feature to its LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter and LIVE+ VSET mobile ENG systems. Integrated with Dejero's LIVE+ Portal intelligent online management system, it enables broadcast organisations to manage and control their LIVE+ 20/20 or LIVE+ VSET transmitters from any location in the world using any web browser.
Dejero's LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter is a portable and rugged solution for encoding and transmitting HD or SD video over 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet, and the LIVE+ VSET is a 1-U vehicle-mount transmitter designed for use in satellite and microwave trucks. With the web-based LIVE+ Portal, operators now have an easy means of controlling both systems from a studio or other remote location using a web browser and the familiar LIVE+ 20/20 graphic interface. The remote control feature enables joint field/studio operation and provides an optional lock-out of hardware buttons on the transmitter for control from the studio only, giving operators on both ends a clear indication that the transmitter is under remote control. The system also enables confidence monitoring through a low-frame-rate video preview feature.
Since operators can use the LIVE+ Portal to control a 20/20 Transmitter or VSET from anywhere in the world, reporters in the field can focus on getting the story while a remote operator takes control of the unit to configure changes and settings. In some cases, broadcast organizations might be able to acquire video from the field using unmanned equipment, lowering the risk of missing an important shot in a breaking news situation.
"With this new remote control feature, the Dejero LIVE+ Platform now gives broadcast organizations even greater control and flexibility when covering global events. And, since field crews no longer have to be responsible for configuring the transmitters, on-site technical assistance is no longer required, and operator training costs are reduced," said Brian Cram, CEO, Dejero. "It's just one more example of how Dejero is continually adapting its product family to meet the evolving requirements of our customers."
