KITCHENER, Ontario - March 27, 2013
Dejero, award-winning creator of the industry's most powerful and versatile platform of cellular newsgathering products, today introduced a new Android™ version of its LIVE+ Mobile App that enables both traditional and online broadcasters to transmit high-quality HD or SD live video from a smartphone. Announced last summer for iOS devices, the LIVE+ Mobile App is an industry first - capable of bonding multiple wireless signals to deliver high-quality video from the street to the television or Web. The initial release of the LIVE+ Mobile App for Android supports the North American version of the Samsung Galaxy S® III.
"By adding support for select Android devices, we're placing the industry's most advanced bonded cellular technology in the hands of an even broader group of users - opening up vast new potential for professional as well as citizen reporters to capture and transmit live and recorded video for television broadcasting or Web streaming," said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. "This technology can transform anyone in the organization into a field reporter, providing the ability to cover a breaking news story from a location that might not be accessible by a news truck or bulky broadcast equipment. In addition, the ultra-fast deployment time and lack of equipment setup offers broadcasters a huge advantage in the race to be first on air - a reporter can be broadcasting live video to viewers within 15 seconds of arriving on the scene."
Using the same award-winning, bonding technology as the Dejero LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter, the LIVE+ Mobile App aggregates both the Wi-Fi® and cellular connections of the Android device. The result is a higher-quality live video transmission with lower latency than a single connection would provide. Since the LIVE+ Mobile App can transmit live video using both the front and back cameras of the Android device during a single broadcast, a reporter can create a complete breaking news story without the need for a camera operator or extra equipment.
