Improvements to connectivity for sending video back over IP or bonded networks, particularly when on the move or having to cope with low-bitrate connections, are being shown by Dejero.
Bogdan Frusina, founder, Dejero, said: “In order to speed up production workflows and overall operational efficiency, reporters and production crews need to be able to work in the field as if they were back at the broadcast facility. But for that to happen they need access to reliable and secure broadband connectivity while on location.
We are showcasing an array of solutions here in Amsterdam that solve connectivity and bandwidth challenges that field personnel encounter trying to get content back to base.”
This includes the Dejero Gateway in-vehicle mobile connectivity system, which allows crews working on location to send and receive large files and access newsroom or media asset management systems, or cloud services. Also represented is Dejero’s new EnGo Vehicle Mount Kit, which has an integrated signal booster, providing a mounting inside a vehicle that connects to roof-mounted high-gain antennas.
This is of particular interest to crews broadcasting live while they travel to a location, and where cellular connectivity may be challenging.
The kit converts the EnGo into a rack-mounted encoder, but can be quickly disconnected and placed in a backpack, or mounted directly on a camera.Dejero is also demonstrating a novel implementation of HEVC encoding that provides greatly improved picture quality in low bitrate environments, especially when combined with real-time adaptive bitrate control and Dejero’s auto transport technology.
