Dejero Teams With Dazzl For Cloud-based Live Production Of Alpine Races

Dejero and Dazzl have formed a partnership to simplify cloud-based live production and have already delivered their first projects; facilitating uninterrupted coverage of two challenging high-profile alpine races, the Dynastar X3 Courchevel Triathlon 2021 and the Torgon Trail 2021, by local French TV station TV8 Mont-Blanc.

A combination of Dejero’s high-quality video contribution technology and Dazzl’s cloud-native live video production capabilities was key to ensuring flawless live broadcast coverage of both events in a complex network environment across the Swiss-French border.

Each race lasted around six hours and encompassed a mix of different physical challenges across various alpine landscapes, in a region that is notorious for fluctuating network coverage by both French and Swiss telecom providers. Credited to the flexibility, reliability and seamless connectivity provided by a Dejero EnGo 260 mobile transmitter, along with Dazzl’s mobile apps, TV8 Mont-Blanc was able to navigate this challenge, and viewers were able to enjoy every second of each event over numerous platforms.

“The Dejero system provided the delivery of stable footage, at the level of the finish line in particular, switching seamlessly from French to Swiss networks depending on availability,” added Boucaud. “Dejero is a real plus for broadcasters, as it guarantees that we have top quality images to ingest live. Despite the fact we were filming in France, the EnGo worked perfectly on the Swiss networks too, with three of the six SIM cards integrated. It is completely stable and guarantees live streaming everywhere without any problem. I’m deeply convinced we need this tool for everyday live streaming integrated in our working process.”

Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology creates a resilient internet connection by aggregating multiple networks into a single service, which allows for the transmission of high-quality live video with latency as low as 0.8 seconds. Footage of both events was delivered via a mix of sources to capture all types of action, including drones, Lumix GH5 cameras, an iPad filming a TV set, smartphones running the Dazzl application along the race, and low-latency Dejero EnGo mobile transmitter technology connecting to Dazzl via a Dejero Cloud Server. These sources were streamed over RTMP to the Dazzl cloud server for use by the TV8 Mont-Blanc producer. Three live streams were created, two high-quality and one low quality, for distribution over Vimeo, YouTube and TV8 Mont-Blanc’s linear TV channel.

Dejero’s cloud server allows Dazzl to stream video to web and mobile devices, simplifying the complex task of publishing live or recorded video streams in multiple formats to the web and mobile devices.

By integrating Dazzl’s cloud video platform with Dejero’s mobile transmitters and video transport solutions, users gain access to live broadcast production, live clipping, rapid editing and video distribution tools in the field.

This combined technology also enables the event or programme production to reach wider audiences and more engagement through multi-platform delivery. Live content can be fed to broadcast, digital and social platforms simultaneously from anywhere in the world.
