Latest version of video transport software offers users IP output capabilities, multichannel audio support and Internet connectivity
WATERLOO, Ontario — September 6, 2016 — Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that simplify the transport of live video and real-time data across remote or mobile IP networks, today announced that it will be previewing the next generation of its LIVE+ Core software, which sits at the heart of its industry-leading products, at the IBC2016 exhibition (stand 12.C56).
LIVE+ Core 4.1 enables IP output from a LIVE+ Broadcast Server in the MPEG-TS format as an alternative to standard SDI playout. Dejero users can easily set the desired output on the Broadcast Server directly from LIVE+ Control, Dejero’s cloud-based management system.
This latest update allows broadcast crews in the field to use their LIVE+ EnGo mobile transmitters to create a ‘hotspot’, connecting all their devices to the Internet to support editing, fact checking and communication while in remote locations. Crews no longer need to carry an additional portable hotspot or pocket router.
This latest version of LIVE+ Core also supports multichannel audio. This enables more audio inputs from a variety of microphones, or allows transmitting of multiple languages. The software is now capable of supporting two, four or eight channels of audio, and features a proprietary prioritization algorithm that intelligently manages bandwidth to preserve video quality as the number of audio channels increases.
The update also enables broadcasters to transmit up to 20 Mb/s over Ethernet to maintain the highest possible video quality. This is particularly useful for high motion action shots. These new features are in addition to the closed captioning capability, enhanced congestion control functionality, and GV STRATUS integration added to Core 4.0 released earlier this year.
“The industry is rapidly transitioning to IP and continues to embrace network bonding solutions for transporting video and data from remote locations. To address this, we continue to expand the capabilities of our software to ensure our customer’s IP workflow and connectivity needs are met,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “We are committed to consistently delivering new and enhanced software updates to our customers, as demonstrated by our latest features introduced at IBC.”
The software update will be available in October and free to all Dejero customers with support plans. Customers interested in updating their existing Dejero LIVE+ transmitters and servers can contact the Dejero support team to schedule an update.
Dejero will demonstrate LIVE+ Core 4.1 at stand 12.C56 during the IBC2016 exhibition from September 9 to 13 in Amsterdam.
