All-New Video Distribution Network Enables Cost-Effective Exchange of HD-Quality, Low-Latency Video From Any Location to Any Location, at Any Time
WATERLOO, Ontario — April 9, 2015 — Dejero, an innovator in the remote acquisition, cloud management, and multiscreen distribution of professional live video over IP, today announced the release of LIVE+ Multipoint, a professional video over IP distribution network. The cloud-based solution enables broadcasters and media organizations to send a broadcast-quality live stream from a source location to multiple locations simultaneously, with known and controlled latency at each end point. LIVE+ Multipoint can also be used to exchange recorded content between studios.
“In today’s fast-paced media distribution environment, broadcasters need the ability to quickly and seamlessly transport high-quality, low-latency video from any source to any destination. With LIVE+ Multipoint, we’re building on our company’s expertise in the remote acquisition, cloud management, and multiscreen distribution of IP video to address these requirements,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “LIVE+ Multipoint has the potential to transform how the broadcast and media industry shares live content. We offer a cost-effective and scalable solution for distributing broadcast-quality video over the public Internet to multiple destinations simultaneously — while minimizing the bandwidth requirement at each receive location.”
LIVE+ Multipoint leverages the Internet along with Dejero’s adaptive bitrate encoding technology and LIVE+ platform of transmitters, servers, software, and cloud services to provide a resilient solution that encodes and routes the content from a single source to multiple destinations across the globe. Compared with other video contribution approaches, such as installing and leasing a fiber link or booking and leasing satellite transponder space, LIVE+ Multipoint is highly cost-effective — especially when sources and destinations span international borders. Because the network supports mobile contribution encoders, it offers greater flexibility than fixed networks for acquiring content from remote locations.
Initially, LIVE+ Multipoint supports distribution of video acquired with Dejero LIVE+ mobile encoding and transmission systems. These include LIVE+ EnGo, GoBox, and VSET transmitters, as well as LIVE+ Mobile App and NewsBook software. Other content sources will be added to the network in the future. Video can be sent to any studio or broadcast facility with a Dejero LIVE+ Broadcast Server and Internet connection. Content can also be routed to Dejero LIVE+ Cloud Servers that deliver RTMP streams to CDNs that serve content to Web and mobile viewers.
The LIVE+ Multipoint distribution network is managed from Dejero’s LIVE+ Control cloud management tool. Accessible from any Web browser, the tool provides broadcasters and media organizations with continuous low-latency, live-preview monitoring of the source content. It also simplifies the sharing of content amongst locations.
Dejero will showcase the LIVE+ platform in booth N1009 at the 2015 NAB Show.
