Degree LIVE+ Newsboy in action with BGAN.
Dejero has updated its LIVE+ NewsBook software for Mac notebooks and now supports the use of portable Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) terminals. LIVE+ NewsBook transforms a Mac notebook into a video uplink solution for transmitting live HD or SD video feeds, as well as recorded and edited files, back to the broadcast facility.
In addition to BGAN support, the new release increases the live-streaming maximum bit rate to 10 Mb/s, enabling “exceptional picture quality, and offers other performance enhancements,” according to Brian Cram, CEO, Dejero.
"The LIVE+ NewsBook software is the perfect solution for field reporters, foreign correspondents, and video production professionals who need to send live or recorded video content from remote locations while traveling with as little gear as possible,” Cram said. "In addition to other connection paths such as cellular, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet, users can now access the BGAN global satellite network — making it easier than ever to cover breaking news and live events while transmitting broadcast-quality content from remote locations."
The NewsBook software bonds multiple cellular, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and portable satellite connections to create an aggregated data path for the transmission of high-quality, high-reliability, and low-latency video.
The addition of support for BGAN terminals adds another connectivity option. The BGAN connection can be bonded with other available networks to increase the bit rate and deliver optimal picture quality, or it can stand alone in places where other wired or wireless network connections are not available. The NewsBook software automatically optimizes transmission settings when a BGAN connection is selected.
