AVIWEST has introduced a new smartphone app for its DMNG PRO video uplink system, used worldwide to transmit broadcast signals for breaking news coverage. Leveraging the DMNG Remote application from their hand-held devices, journalists can configure, control, and deploy DMNG PRO, with the aim of reducing the time required to get news on the air.
"Today's broadcasters are in a race against time. They need reliable, user-friendly video contribution solutions that aid them in getting news on the air ahead of the competition," said Erwan Gasc, CEO, AVIWEST. "Through the DMNG Remote application, journalists in the field can instantly connect to a DMNG PRO video uplink system without setting down their gear, enabling live news and event coverage to be broadcast instantly, from any location around the world."
Using the DMNG Remote application, journalists can quickly gain access to the DMNG PRO's intuitive touchscreen interface irrespective of whether the video uplink system is on a person or up to several metres away. The application connects to the DMNG PRO via existing wi-fi networks or through the DMNG PRO's built-in wi-fi modem.
The DMNG Remote application features a web configurator that allows users to modify various configuration parameters of the DMNG PRO. A DMNG Files feature is also included with the application, which allows a view of the complete list of recorded files on the DMNG PRO SD card, modification of file names, and a video preview to help users select the right file before forwarding it on to the studio.
The app is free to download for AVIWEST customers, and is currently available on Android-based devices with an iOS version to come soon.
