New portable transmitter for mobile journalists


Dejero, creator of mobile news-gathering products, has announced the LIVE+ GoBox
— a professional-grade mobile transmitter for news-gathering professionals and
video content contributors on the move. Dejero’s newest portable transmitter
enables mobile journalists to broadcast live from virtually anywhere with bonded
cellular, wi-Fi, and portable satellite connections, or record up to 40 hours of HD
video for later broadcast.

Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero says, “The GoBox is designed to work in the most
challenging of circumstances. Whenever and wherever news is breaking, mobile
journalists can just grab the unit and head to the scene to capture and transmit live,
high-quality video.”

The GoBox can be set up anywhere to transmit low-latency HD or SD video quickly
and reliably, and at a fraction of the cost and complexity of satellite and microwave
trucks, even in locations with extremely limited bandwidth. The small GoBox
briefcase unit connects to any SDI or HDMI camera, and mobile journalists can set
it on the ground, wear it on their back, place it away from the camera for optimal
antenna performance, or even use it to broadcast from a moving vehicle. Users can
manage the transmitter in the field from any web browser and route the live or
recorded video to the broadcast centre for on-air playout or to the cloud for online
distribution. Additionally, ingest operators at a broadcast centre can remotely
locate, monitor, and control the GoBox as well as switch and route live
transmissions or recorded files with the Dejero LIVE+ Portal cloud-based
management tool.

The GoBox uses Dejero’s patented Intelligent Connection Management technology to
bond any available combination of 3G/4G/LTE cellular, wi-fi, Ethernet, and portable
satellite connections, and the system automatically and continuously adapts to
network conditions to ensure consistently high video quality. The GoBox includes
built-in LTE modems and dual-band integrated wi-fi for the fastest-possible
broadband connectivity, and its enhanced antenna design provides four times the
wireless RF performance of Dejero’s previous portable systems. This is particularly
useful in challenging network conditions where bandwidth is limited. In addition, the
GoBox features a low-power, high-performance processor engineered to provide
high-quality video and longer battery life.

The unit is specifically designed for heavy daily use by news crews which need to
rush to breaking news scenes and set up quickly. Built for demanding situations
where the unit might get jostled – in the midst of a large crowd or a moving
vehicle – the GoBox has undergone rigorous vibration testing to ensure it can
withstand such environments.
