Cinematographer Vinit Borrison Relies On Dejero EnGo For Remote Productions

Uninterrupted connectivity between multiple locations enabled instant communication with remote directors, agency and clients, cutting production time on set.

Dejero is providing award-winning cinematographer, Vinit Borrison, with connectivity solutions at the heart of his virtual video village workflow, enabling efficient remote collaboration anywhere in the world.

Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology enabled high-quality, low-latency video during the filming, editing and delivery of a Neutrogena commercial shoot.

The unique production captured during lockdown was filmed, produced, and edited by Borrison from his home using the Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter which was key to having reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity. The transmitter enabled the director based in New York, the agency in Los Angeles, and the clients in Toronto to join on a Zoom call while the EnGo streamed the high-quality live video with low latency.

“When the pandemic hit and social distancing was enforced, there was no option for the industry but to work remotely with bare minimal crew, which had a lot of production companies scrambling. But as we’d already adopted Dejero’s connectivity solution into our workflows, it was the perfect storm which has actually opened up many more opportunities for us,” said Borrison.

Borrison has been innovating in the post-production space since 2007 and started using Dejero EnGo mobile transmitters across its episodic, feature film, and commercial productions at the start of 2020. The EnGo provides the robust internet connectivity required for executives, creatives, directors and camera operators to view high quality HD video instantly from any location, saving significant time, budget, and resources. It uses Emmy award-winning Smart Blending Technology, which simultaneously aggregates diverse wired and wireless Internet Protocol (IP) connections from multiple sources to form a virtual ‘network of networks’ into a single service, enhancing the reliability of connection paths, expanding coverage and delivering greater bandwidth.

“The EnGo is an amazing tool that has helped us to create a highly efficient remote workflow for our productions,” added Borrison. “Tons of people crowding around a few monitors on set has been superseded by a virtual video village because we can now connect our client’s creatives and stakeholders from the comfort of their homes or studios. It means that everyone has a great view of what is being filmed at that moment so faster, and more considered, creative decisions can be made, which enhances overall production values.”
