Sky News to use Dejero LIVE+ Mobile Apps
Sky News has purchased a ‘significant quantity’ of Dejero LIVE+ Mobile App licenses. After a successful testing period with the Dejero technology, including what is reported to be the world’s first intercontinental live video interview using Dejero’s LIVE+ Mobile App installed on an iPhone, Sky News is in the process of deploying the technology to supplement its domestic and international newsgathering operation.
The Dejero solutions and support have been supplied by IDX Technology Europe, Dejero’s exclusive U.K. distributor.
Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero, comments: “Sky News is the latest example of a high-profile, international news organisation embracing Dejero’s technology to strengthen its ability to bring high-quality live footage back to viewers that might have been difficult or impossible to capture before. We look forward to working with Sky News as it expands its mobile newsgathering capabilities.”
Dejero’s LIVE + Platform is a family of products that use bonded cellular technology to transmit high-quality HD or SD live video from a variety of mobile device. Dejero’s flagship product, the LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter, is a professional-grade ENG solution that encodes and transmits HD or SD video over 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet connections. Dejero’s LIVE+ Mobile App gives broadcasters the ability to transmit high-quality live or recorded video from an iOS device. The app aggregates bandwidth from both the Wi-Fi and cellular connections of the device, resulting in a higher-quality live video transmission with lower latency than a single connection can provide.
