New Release Delivers Simplified Management, Enhanced Connections, and Satellite Augmentation for Improved Live Video Acquisition
Waterloo, ON - November 9, 2012
Dejero, creator of the award-winning bonded cellular uplink solutions, announces the general availability of LIVE+ software version 2.7. This latest release includes Automatic Ingest Routing ("AIR"), Satellite Mode, Film Support, and improved picture quality in low cellular coverage areas.
"This software release is designed to maximize the interconnectivity of our LIVE+ Platform," said Brian Cram, Dejero CEO. "From professional broadcast transmitters to laptops and iPhones, the LIVE+ Platform gives broadcasters the flexibility to transmit high quality live or recorded video from remote locations using a variety of devices."
Included in Version 2.7 is the introduction of AIR, a feature that allows multiple Dejero transmission devices to be assigned to a common pool of ingests across one or many Dejero LIVE+ Broadcast Servers; this feature enables the automatic assignment of video transmissions to ingests and outputs on a first-in, first-out basis. AIR simplifies the ingest assignment process, making it easy for broadcasters to manage a large number of Dejero LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitters and LIVE+ Mobile Apps.
The new version of software also debuts Satellite Mode, a patent pending feature of the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter for use with high bandwidth, high latency connections. Satellite Mode combines Dejero's adaptive bitrate video encoding and intelligent connection bonding with a high-speed satellite or microwave connection. This powerful combination enables broadcasters to achieve a picture quality, connection reliability, and latency that are not possible when using a satellite link alone.
Additionally, Version 2.7 introduces Film Support, a feature that allows filmmakers to rapidly transmit original-format 1080p/23.98fps video over multiple mobile connections.
The new software release also boosts thetransmit capability of the cellular cards in low or poor cellular coverage areas. This enhancement leads to improved picture quality in rural areas and other challenging network environments.
