TLC incorporates Dejero to simplify logistics on This is Life Live production

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, enabled America’s leading unscripted production company, Fly on the Wall Entertainment (FOTW), to reach a new level of flexibility during its production of the second season of TLC’s This is Life Live show using Dejero’s mobile transmission technology.

The popular series airs human-interest ‘reveal’ stories live, over four consecutive nights from two different US cities simultaneously. FOTW’s back to back productions were supported by broadcast solutions provider and Dejero partner Bexel.

“It’s a very unique show that’s incredibly logistically challenging,” explained Jeff Anderson, executive in charge of production at FOTW. “Approaching season two, we wanted to find a solution that didn’t rely on the deployment of satellite trucks in both locations each night. Previously this required the deployment and briefing of two sets of production crews, troubleshooting for each, and basically reliving ‘Groundhog Day’ every time we hit the ground in a new city.”

For season two, FOTW used Dejero’s HEVC-capable EnGo mobile transmitter to transmit high-quality video over multiple IP networks, simplifying the show’s production cycle dramatically by removing the need to hire satellite trucks and broadcast crews at each location. This saved FOTW significant amounts of time, resources, and production costs.

“With any live unscripted production, the only way you can make it efficient is to keep it constant and remove the element of surprise and as many variables as possible. Dejero enabled us to do just that, and it translated directly into more efficiency and cost savings,” continued Anderson.

Dejero’s EnGo had already made FOTW’s on-site presence incredibly low-impact, flexible, and agile during the production of Katy Perry’s 96 hour live unscripted Witness World Wide! show in collaboration with YouTube last year. It worked flawlessly using IP network connectivity and gave Anderson the idea to park a single satellite truck in Los Angeles during the production of the second season of This is Life Live and use the Dejero units to send signals back to the truck from any location across the country.

“You can’t ship a satellite truck, but you can ship an EnGo,” concluded Anderson. “The EnGo is solid, versatile, dependable, and quite an amazing piece of mobile technology. The decision was made for us when we tried it the first time; it’s a domino effect where the benefits add up.”

The EnGo is a compact and modular mobile transmitter that encodes high-quality video and transmits over multiple IP networks to reliably deliver exceptional picture quality with extremely low latency—even in challenging network conditions. Camera-mounted, vehicle-mounted, or wearable, EnGo is ideal for newsgathering, sports coverage, and live event broadcasting from remote locations, and while in motion.

“To accompany FOTW on their journeys across the US, producing unique and unscripted live reality content, is an honor,’” said Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management, Dejero. “Solving these types of live broadcast challenges is what we’re passionate about at Dejero. We’re very pleased to have made FOTW’s operations more efficient and their jobs easier on the road.”

Dejero announces new capabilities of cloud-based management system

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has launched a range of new features within its cloud-based management system, Dejero Control. The expanded capabilities of Control further simplify the workflows of broadcasters and content providers enabling expanded device sharing and metadata generation.

Automated and customisable clip metadata

Leveraging the integrated cloud workflow, a new automated and customisable recorded clip metadata feature allows users in the field or back at the control room to edit and add metadata to clips via the Dejero Control interface. Station administrators can create a custom metadata template that is used across all clips to add relevant auto-generated metadata defined by the templates. Users at the station can now quickly search and find relevant content—saving them significant time.

A metadata template is applied to all ingested clips at the station level and users can select from a list of ten pre-set fields, such as geolocation and acquisition date—all auto populated from the transmitter. Customers can also add free-form fields that station operators can define to further organise recorded clips.

“It can be very inefficient and time consuming for broadcasters to find relevant content in their systems. With our new metadata feature, we are providing a means for broadcasters and media organisations to automate the generation and tagging of metadata, saving them valuable time and enabling them to speed up content retrieval and automate metadata driven workflows,” said Todd Schneider, chief technology officer at Dejero.

Expanded device sharing

The system now offers an expanded device sharing capability that allows broadcasters to temporarily route a feed from a field transmitter to a partner station or broadcaster. Building upon this capability, broadcasters can now also share access to receivers. This adds flexibility to how stations integrate with other stations or freelancers in the field. Dejero customers can now send or receive video with the transmitters and receivers set up within the ‘device sharing’ feature in Control.

The simple UI of Dejero Control allows station operators to provide freelancers or other collaborators access to route content, while a cloud-based infrastructure permits device sharing to provide secure, controlled interoperability between stations and freelancers.

Workflow automation

Metadata and expanded device sharing capabilities continue to build on the features of Dejero Control to support broadcasters in transforming their workflows. Existing Control features including real-time analytics, usage reports and notifications, remote controlled settings, and transmitter health monitoring combined with the new features all aim to simplify time-consuming processes allowing broadcasters to focus on the work that matters most and automate their workflows driving improved efficiencies.

“As a leading innovator in embracing and leveraging the cloud for broadcasters, we are continually working to bring our customers more ways to automate and simplify their workflows. Dejero’s flexible and customer-centric approach delivers innovative, effective solutions that we will build on for our future cloud-based offerings,” added Schneider.
