Dejero Streaming Tech Aids Live Remote Production

Spanish production company Quality Media is delivering live remote IP video from multi-camera live events for sports federations in Spain.

It is using the Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter and Mobile App as part of its package to transmit live sports, including live football matches for LaLiga, as well as providing live feeds from the summer’s World Cup for Spanish media. Other live sports productions have included rally racing, weightlifting, and exclusive live coverage of Petanque.

The EnGo is an HEVC capable, compact mobile transmitter that encodes high-quality video and transmits over multiple IP networks to reliably deliver exceptional picture quality with extremely low latency.

“Launching our company in early 2017, during the industry’s worst financial crisis, meant that we had to adapt our business model to incorporate remote IP production or perish,” said Pablo Reyes, business development and production design manager at Quality Media. “With broadcasters’ budgets at an all-time low and pressure to provide high-quality content at an all-time high, our existing proposals weren’t hitting the right price points. We had to find a way to produce top quality remote productions without outlaying the cost of a full crew and OB van to our clients.

“We also love the Dejero Mobile App, as it helps us bridge the gap between traditional remote production and cloud production, opening up the possibility of creating large numbers of RTMP flows to the cloud. We plan to use mobile flows in the future which will allow us to mix up to 30 camera positions operated by AI. It is also fantastic that Dejero uses GSM modems - which means we can use the latest EnGo transmitter in any part of the world.”
