Dejero Enhances HRT Croatia’s Live News, Sports Coverage And Current Affairs Reporting

Dejero transmitters, encoders, receivers, network aggregation devices and content sharing service at the heart of HRT’s field reporting.

Croatia’s public broadcaster HRT (Hrvatska radiotelevizija), has equipped its headquarters, regional centres and global reporting teams, with Dejero solutions. Supporting the broadcaster’s live news, sports and events coverage, 

Dejero EnGo mobile transmitters are used daily by field crews at the broadcaster’s headquarters in Zagreb and regional stations in Čakovec, Osijek, Vukovar, Rijeka, Pula, Zadar, Šibenik, Split, and more. HRT crews also carry the EnGo transmitters with them when they travel internationally to cover major sporting events, high profile elections and global news events.

HRT uses a combination of EnGo mobile transmitters, PathWay encoders and the MultiPoint content distribution service in its outside broadcast workflow to support on-site reporting at any given location.

The EnGo mobile transmitters are used by field crews to send live camera footage to a WayPoint receiver installed at HRT’s headquarters. Using multiple PathWay EC encoders with six integrated modems for 3G/4G/LTE cellular connectivity and the ability to record up to 32 hours of HD (85 GB of storage), the broadcaster can collect feeds to package and enhance the live coverage of events for news, sports and current affairs programmes.

A MultiPoint cloud-based service simplifies the sharing of high-quality, low-latency, real-time content, enabling feeds from different cameras to be shared simultaneously with HRT’s regional centres that are also equipped with a Dejero WayPoint receiver.

HRT uses the Dejero Control cloud-based management system to centrally manage all of its Dejero equipment from a web browser. Transmitters anywhere in the world can be controlled remotely. Control also simplifies the routing and sharing of live video feeds, recorded clips and file transfers from the field transmitters.

HRT Radio also relies on a Dejero GateWay network aggregation device to deliver resilient wireless internet connectivity for the transmission of its daily live radio shows from the field to HRT headquarters.

Both the EnGo and GateWay devices feature Smart Blending Technology which simultaneously combines cellular connections from multiple providers, as well as other wired or wireless IP connections if they are available, to form a virtual Dejero ‘network of networks’. The result is reliable, high-bandwidth internet connectivity for broadcast-quality live video and radio transmission from anywhere.
