The EnGo Vehicle Mount Kit with integrated signal booster will show, along with recent updates to Dejero Core software

Remote video solutions company Dejero, will be showing new IP-based mobile solutions at IBC2017.

Dejero’s will show for the first time at IBC its EnGo Vehicle Mount Kit with integrated signal booster. The kit enhances the RF performance of the Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter by providing a mounting option inside a newsgathering or production vehicle that connects to roof-mounted high-gain antennas. This is aimed at news crews broadcasting live while they travel to a location, and where cellular connectivity may be challenging. The kit converts the Dejero EnGo into a rack-mounted encoder found in cellular, satellite, or multi-transmission path vehicles. It can then be quickly disconnected and placed in a backpack, or mounted directly on a camera, to give crews mobility when on the scene of breaking news and live events.

Dejero will also demo an implementation of HEVC that provides greatly improved picture quality in low bitrate environments, especially when combined with real-time adaptive bitrate control and Dejero’s auto transport technology. This combination ensures the best possible picture quality, even when bandwidth is limited. Visitors to the Dejero stand can also learn how applying this technology in low delay, live transmission environments requires additional considerations to best leverage the benefits.

Recent updates to Dejero Core software, that streamlines clip and asset management workflows, will also be on display. The updates aim to make the management of clips and media assets by crews on the ground more efficient. Updates include additional clip workflow support and simplification, upcapped file transfer rates and a new "transfer while recording" operating mode.

The Dejero Gateway in-vehicle mobile connectivity solution will also be on show. Dejero Gateway allows crews working on location to send and receive large files and access their newsroom or media asset managment systems, as well as cloud services used for collaboration. Dejero provides secure access to the public Internet and private networks using high-bandwidth blended network technology. Reporters can complete stories on location by securely accessing systems, searching and downloading archived footage, editing their stories and uploading packages ready for air while in the field.

Dejero has flagged August 22 for a major announcement about its collaboration with another tech company, as yet undisclosed.
