Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that simplify the transport of live video and real-time data across remote or mobile IP networks, on 26 April 2016 announced a new update of its LIVE+ Mobile App, its new solution allowing journalists to use iPhones to get stories on air fast.
“We spend a lot of time talking to our customers,’ said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “They outlined what they need to make our LIVE+ Mobile App more useful, and we are using that feedback to add new features and enhancements in each release.’
The new release of LIVE+ Mobile App enables image stabilisation on iPhone 5s and above models, smoothing out vibrations and hand shake, which is inevitable in any situation where a journalist is holding the phone to gather news or cover live events.
Based on user feedback, the audio meter has also been enhanced. Available during shot set-up and while broadcasting live or recording a clip, the on-screen dBFS audio level metering more accurately reflects the sound environment, helping mobile journalists set the appropriate levels for clear commentary. The new release also supports microphones with lightning connector cables such as the iRig Mic HD.
The app now supports real-time analytics in LIVE+ Control, Dejero’s cloud-based management system. Both live and historical stream performance data including network connections and glass-to-glass latency, combined with geolocation information, helps operators in the broadcast facility monitor the performance of a live shot, and review historic shots which helps with planning of future shots.
“Mobile journalism is an increasingly significant trend, with even traditional broadcast journalists recognising the power of getting on air armed with nothing more than their iPhone,’ Cram concluded.
