Dejero has released the latest version of the LIVE+ Mobile App for iOS devices. The app allows an Apple iPhone or iPad to be used as a tool for broadcasting live video, recording content for later broadcast, or importing and uploading edited video files. With this new release (Version 3.1), the app now supports HD video in resolutions up to 1080p for live streaming on iPhone 6 devices. In addition, the app’s maximum bitrate for transmissions has been increased to 9Mbps.
“Our LIVE+ Mobile App is a great example of Dejero’s ongoing commitment to simplify the remote acquisition, cloud management, and multiscreen distribution of professional live video over IP,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “As LTE networks and Wi-Fi hotspots become more prevalent, it’s easier than ever to cover breaking news and stream live events from a mobile phone or tablet in full HD. As a result, more and more news organisations, video professionals, and live event production companies are adopting our app to supplement their remote video acquisition capabilities. Many are also using it in innovative ways to transmit content that would otherwise be too expensive to capture using traditional technologies.”
Using Dejero’s Intelligent Connection Management technology, the app transmits low-latency video over bonded cellular and Wi-Fi connections. In situations where the available bandwidth is fluctuating, the app will automatically adjust the resolution to deliver the optimal picture quality for the network conditions. As with the other mobile encoding and transmission solutions in the LIVE+ Platform, live video feeds from the app are monitored with the LIVE+ cloud management tool and then routed either to broadcast servers for TV playout or cloud servers for web and mobile distribution.
Version 3.1 of the LIVE+ Mobile App for iOS is now available from the Apple App Store. A license is required to send live feeds and recorded or edited files to server destinations.
