Dejero who make products for remote acquisition, cloud management, and multiscreen distribution of professional live video over IP, launched their LIVE+ EnGo product at NAB. It’s a camera-mounted or wearable transmitter for remote HD video acquisition. LIVE+ EnGo encodes H.264 video and transmits it over multiple IP networks to deliver video with low latency.
A modular design enables the attachment of swappable wireless modules to customise LIVE+ EnGo to the locally available wireless network infrastructure, and for use around the world. “LIVE+ EnGo uses cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and portable satellite connectivity for live broadcasts from virtually anywhere — even from a moving vehicle. The solution is ideal for newsgathering, sports coverage, and any type of remote live-event broadcasting.”
The unit can be connected to any SDI or HDMI camera, and with the push of a single button, the system immediately detects video input and format, as well as available network connections, enabling the operator to go live quickly. A touch screen interface provides confidence monitoring, status information and it facilitates separate initiation of live and record functions.
The LIVE+ EnGo can bond up to eight network connections including 3G/4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and portable satellite.
Additional features include internal storage for up to 40 hours of HD recording, a display port video output, integrated Bluetooth connectivity, and external USB ports. The LIVE+ EnGo is powered from a single Gold Mount or V-mount video camera battery. It also includes an internal battery to power the camera and accessories, allowing the operator to hot swap the external battery.
Dejero’s newly introduced LIVE+ Control cloud management tool gives studio technicians the ability to geolocate, monitor performance, and remotely control a fleet of LIVE+ EnGo transmitters from any Web browser. They can also preview incoming feeds and route both live and recorded content to on-air playout and online distribution workflows.
