Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that simplify the transport of live video and real-time data across remote or mobile IP networks, has introduced a series of new enhancements to its LIVE+ Control management system. The update is linked to the release of version 4.0 of LIVE+ Core software.
LIVE+ Control simplifies the workflows of going live from remote locations and transporting recorded content to the broadcast facility over bonded IP networks including cellular, WiFi, Ethernet or satellite. The simple-to-use web interface allows operators to quickly identify, geolocate, and remotely control transmitters, configure on-premises and cloud servers, monitor both the mix and the health of the IP network connections, and route content to SDI or online playout workflows.
The latest update enhances monitoring and reporting capabilities, displaying real-time analytics of network connection performance and overall transmission quality for each Dejero transmitter. This information allows operators in the broadcast facility to assess the shot and optimise transmitter settings before beginning the remote broadcast. Combined with geolocation information, the success of historic shots from specific locations can also be reviewed to help plan future shots.
Users can now define, filter, and save specific reports, aggregating transmitter details and usage for historical live streams, recorded clips, and file transfers to understand utilisation patterns by hour, day, month or year. Reports can be customised to focus on specific transmitters and time-frames, providing stations and groups with the level of detail they require.
As previously announced, Dejero has collaborated with Grass Valley to embed LIVE+ Control into the GV STRATUS video production and content management system. This allows users to move recorded clips from a LIVE+ Broadcast Server to the STRATUS Express server. Files are automatically transcoded to the desired format for previewing and use. Working together, Dejero and Grass Valley are simplifying the overall file-based workflow to meet the needs of news production.
