Dejero CuePoint Boosts Confidence Monitoring In The Field

CuePoint is presented as a new low-latency return feed server that keeps live broadcast production and remote teams synchronized.

The new rack-mounted return feed server sends low-latency video and audio, alongside teleprompting feeds, to live broadcast production teams in the field. Return video and teleprompting feeds from the broadcast center can be seen in the field by the talent on a tablet or dedicated screen above or below the camera, or on multiple mobile devices by camera operators, field directors and technicians. The server is claimed to deliver return feeds with as little as 250 milliseconds of latency. 

"In order to create precisely-timed and captivating live content in the field, it’s critical that the central production and remote teams are in sync, whether for talent cueing, production and confidence monitoring, or accessing a teleprompter,” said Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management, Dejero. “CuePoint empowers these teams so they can all simultaneously access production information with little to no latency."

She adds, “The server makes talent cueing and production monitoring easier to manage in the field, as remote talent, field directors, and technicians can see when live shots are about to start and what's currently on air.”

Camera operators can use CuePoint to confirm that a remote feed is on air and adjust their camera framing to account for graphics, overlays, and split screens. The server also sends teleprompter feeds to the on-air talent, enabling real-time updates.
