Special Events

Covering major live events can be challenging

While cellular networks have become more robust and stable, acquiring sufficient signal strength required for reliable, high-quality video can be difficult – or even impossible. Congested cellular environments and remote locations are particularly challenging.

Meanwhile, deploying conventional satellite or microwave technology may not be practical or may limit where live shots can be captured.

We offer special event support packages that include Wi-Fi infrastructure, equipment, and a team of on-site support personnel to help you go live.

Many of the world’s top broadcasters have relied on Dejero to cover a growing list of major international news and sporting events such as the Olympics, the week of mourning for Nelson Mandela, and the 2013 Papal conclave.
