Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has announced a major release to Dejero Core software. Core runs on all Dejero transmitters and receivers and includes the proprietary technology responsible for the intelligent and dynamic blending of IP connections from multiple network providers. The latest update, Core 5.0, will be showcased at NAB Show 2018, Las Vegas, LVCC booth C2025, April 9-12th.
“The drive behind this major release of our Core software is to help broadcasters and media organizations further simplify their workflows while providing even higher levels of performance and video quality,” explains Bogdan Frusina, founder, Dejero.
Continuing its ongoing commitment to broadcasters, Dejero Core 5.0 adds HEVC support to the latest version of Dejero EnGo, a highly versatile mobile transmitter that encodes high-quality video and reliably transmits over multiple IP streams to deliver exceptional quality at low latency.
EnGo now combines Dejero’s industry-leading auto-transport and adaptive bitrate encoding technology – which optimizes picture quality when there’s limited bandwidth available – with HEVC, the newest compression standard.
Broadcasters can take advantage of the enhanced efficiency of HEVC compression to provide higher quality video at lower bitrates. The Core 5.0 software update is free for eligible customers, with no additional hardware to be installed or purchased. Core 5.0 also adds support for 1080p at 25/30 fps to Dejero EnGo, GoBox, and VSET transmitters, the Dejero Broadcast Server, and the Cloud Server and MultiPoint cloud services. The recently introduced HEVC-capable PathWay rack-mount encoder/transmitter and WayPoint receiver now support 1080p at 25/30/50/60 fps. The increased frame rates deliver smooth, high-motion video preferred by broadcasters for sports and eSports coverage.
“We see our customers pushing our products to the limit as they aim to provide the best possible experience for their viewers. Now with up to 1080p60 support, our customers can capture high-motion content such as traditional sporting events, emerging eSports, or other high-motion content and provide a level of quality that they never could have before,” adds Kevin Fernandes, vice president of sales at Dejero.
In addition to the HEVC and frame rate enhancements, Dejero Core 5.0 software enables operators in the field to rename clips recorded on the transmitter, making them easier to find and manage at the broadcast facility. An option to record at 12 Mb/s and 15 Mb/s has also been added to provide even higher picture quality when it’s needed. The large storage capacity on Dejero transmitters provides ample space for these high-quality recordings.
Simplifying workflows and saving time, Dejero Core 5.0 software continues to drive video quality performance and improve efficiency for broadcasters. The release will be available in May and will be previewed for the first time at NAB Show 2018 at Dejero’s booth C2025 in the central hall.
