Dejero’s LIVE+ lands on Aeryon’s drone

Dejero has partnered with drone manufacturer Aeryon Labs to combine the Dejero LIVE+ wireless video transmitters with Aeryon’s SkyRanger drone.

Broadcast-quality HD video captured by the drone can be transmitted from the field, previewed with Dejero's LIVE+ Control cloud-based management system, and routed to broadcast facilities around the globe for live on-air playout.

It can also be routed to cloud servers that enable delivery to web and mobile devices, or to Dejero's LIVE+ Multipoint video-sharing network for simultaneous distribution to multiple locations.

"There is significant and growing interest from broadcasters — especially newsgathering organizations — in drone technology because it brings a unique perspective and closer, more intimate live content, while providing greater context to news stories," said Brian Cram, CEO, Dejero. "For drone-based video to work in a live broadcast situation, broadcasters need low-latency, broadcast-quality video from a highly reliable drone system that's easy to use, quick to deploy, and proven in the field. That is what the Aeryon drone system gives them. Thanks to this partnership, incorporating live, drone-based video into newscasts is a practical reality for broadcasters."

"Our partnership with Dejero delivers on our commitment to offer end-to-end solutions to customers in key industries, such as public safety and law enforcement, infrastructure inspection, and newsgathering," said Dave Kroetsch, president and CEO of Aeryon Labs. "It also underscores our strategic focus on software and services as a critical component of our product offering."
