Dejero Unveils New 5G Transmission And Decoding Solutions At IBC 2022

The new EnGo 3x 5G transmitter provides reliable 4K UHD video transmission and multi-camera production in the field; and the new WayPoint 3 receiver decodes HEVC or AVC, outputting in resolutions of up to 4K UHD.

Dejero will introduce its new EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x 5G mobile transmitters with integrated internet gateway at IBC 2022, along with its new WayPoint 3 receiver.

The EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x combine superior 5G performance with unparalleled video quality for broadcast and media production markets; with EnGo 3x supporting 4K UHD transmission and multi-camera production. The company’s new WayPoint 3 receiver reconstructs video transported over multiple IP connections from select Dejero transmitters, decodes HEVC or AVC, and outputs resolutions up to 4K UHD.

New 5G EnGo Mobile Transmitters
The EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x transmitters are designed with brand new RF and 4x4 MIMO antenna architecture to unlock the full potential of 5G connections and ensure optimal antenna isolation.

Dejero selected modems that support a broad range of cellular bands to enhance 5G performance of the EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x, supporting additional bands used by carriers in the US, Canada, Australia, China, Korea, and Latin America that other 5G mobile transmitters simply cannot connect to.

EnGo 3x
EnGo 3x boasts multi-camera support for up to four fully frame-synced HD feeds. Perfect for capturing feeds from multiple cameras in a single unit, EnGo 3x reduces the cost and complexity of multi-camera sports and live event productions. The additional camera inputs can be licensed when needed, for ultimate flexibility.

The ability to transmit in 4K UHD with eight audio channels delivers unparalleled video quality at extremely low latencies. With more sports and major live event viewers willing to pay a premium to watch in the highest definition possible, Dejero anticipates this will quickly become a sought after feature for sports and live event productions. Furthermore, 4K UHD live feeds can greatly benefit film, television and commercial productions to make it easier for distributed teams that are not located on set to monitor and detect lighting and color balance issues in real-time. This is paramount for avoiding expensive reshoots. The 4K UHD feature does not require a separate licence, unlike competing solutions.

EnGo 3
EnGo 3 is designed for newsgathering in locations where 5G networks have been widely deployed, As with the EnGo 3x, it reliably transports broadcast-quality live video from remote locations whilst also providing resilient, high-bandwidth internet access, all in a single device. With glass-to-glass latency as low as half a second over bonded cellular connections, it also delivers greater security with AES 256 encryption, a security-hardened Linux OS and a cryptoprocessor to authenticate the hardware.

The 5G networks bonded by EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x transmitters can be combined with other wireless networks including Wi-Fi and GEO/MEO/LEO satellite, and fixed line (cable/DSL/fiber) wired networks thanks to Dejero’s award-winning Smart Blending Technology. This technology intelligently manages the fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss, and latency differences of the individual connections in real-time, providing enhanced reliability, expanded coverage and greater bandwidth.

WayPoint 3 Receiver
The new WayPoint 3 makes its debut at IBC. It can receive video in resolutions up to 4K UHD to ensure high picture quality. WayPoint 3 reconstructs HEVC or AVC video, transported over multiple IP connections from any Dejero transmitter from version 1.3 onwards, ensuring reconstruction, decoding, and playout in the highest possible definition that SDI, or MPEG-T workflows can support. Saving rack space in the server room, WayPoint 3 can simultaneously output up to four feeds from the same receiver; two 4K UHD and two HD (or lower resolution), one 4K UHD and three HD (or lower resolution), or four HD (or lower resolution).
