Cellular bonding and connectivity specialist Dejero has been decorated with an Emmy for Excellence in Engineering Creativity.
The Ontario-based company – best-known in TV production circles for its EnGo mobile transmitters – was awarded by the National Academy of Television Arts and Science for its work in ‘Pioneering Reliable Transmission Method for Live Contribution and Distribution TV Links’.
Dejero’s founder and chief innovation and strategy officer Bogdan Frusina, said that the company was honoured to receive the award as it celebrated its tenth year in operation.
“We started this journey a decade ago, driven by the desire to solve the connectivity challenges of television journalists in the field,” he said.
“We are proud to have greatly simplified and dramatically reduced the cost of broadcasting live from remote locations, helping to transform how news and live event coverage is delivered.”
Frusina added that the company was also looking to solve similar ‘first mile’ connectivity challenges in other markets and this summer worked with Team Sky’s performance hub on the Tour De France to enhance connectivity between the cycling team and the coaches who sit in the follow vehicles.
The manufacturer’s other solutions include CellSat, a blended cellular and Ku-band satellite technology that delivers the bandwidth needed to transmit broadcast quality video in real time from hard to reach places.
Dejero will be honoured with the award at the 70th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards on April 7 next year during NAB.
