Dejero is launching its new EnGo 265 mobile transmitter for news teams and live events broadcasters that need resilient connectivity to quickly go live from any location. Simple to use and strong enough for field use, EnGo 265 will replace the EnGo 260 and adds new features targeting the broadcast and media market. The new model improves security and achieves lower latency than the EnGo 260 at just 0.5 seconds over bonded cellular connections. It also has a new GateWay mode for wireless broadband internet connectivity and a modified backpack with a wired remote control panel.
Like its predecessor, the EnGo 265 uses Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology to combine multiple network connections to transmit broadcast-quality live video while intelligently managing the fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss and latency differences of the individual connections in real-time.
The new mobile transmitter also has efficient antennas and RF design to maintain reliable cellular reception in poor coverage and crowded areas, and while on the go.
To meet the increased market demand for security, Dejero aims to further protect video streams. As well as AES256 encryption, the EnGo 265 includes a robust Linux OS and a new microprocessor devoted to cryptographic operations used to authenticate the hardware.
The new GateWay mode delivers wireless broadband internet connectivity in the field to enable mobile teams to securely transfer large files quickly, access MAM and newsroom systems and publish content to social media. The GateWay mode also gives general internet access to resources for field research, access to cloud-based services and also serves as a high-bandwidth access point for devices.
With the reliability and throughput of a fixed line connection while operating in scenarios demanding wireless connectivity, GateWay mode combines live transmission and internet gateway capabilities into a single device. It aggregates available networks to maximize reliability and increase bandwidth. In most newsgathering and remote production scenarios, doing this involves bonding cellular connections from multiple carriers, with the option to also tap into satellite connectivity when needed.
A wired remote control panel attaches to the modified EnGo transmitter backpack.
A significant algorithm enhancement that further improves reliability in challenging environments also enables glass-to-glass latency as low as 0.5 seconds over bonded cellular connections. This allows a more natural discussion between a studio presenter and field reporter during talkbacks for an enhanced viewer experience. Other systems will require a wired connection to achieve sub-second latency.
With its integrated global modems, user-accessible SIMs and an internal battery compliant with aircraft carry-on requirements, the EnGo 265 suits domestic and international travel. When used with Dejero’s Vehicle Antenna Dock, the EnGo 265 can be securely mounted into vehicles and attached to external antennas to boost reception.
For convenience, a wired remote control panel now attaches to the modified EnGo transmitter backpack so that camera operators can start and stop live streams, and monitor status. www.dejero.com
