Dejero Releases New Version of Live+ Mobile App

WATERLOO, ONTARIO, CANADA—Dejero announced the release of the Live+ Mobile App for iOS, Vers. 3.0. The app transforms an Apple iPhone or iPad into a newsgathering or live event tool for broadcasting live video, recording content for later broadcast, or importing and uploading edited video files. With Vers. 3.0, the app includes new features for greater versatility and low-bandwidth connectivity, such as enhanced latency management, Wi-Fi links to Internet satellite systems, and the ability to assign live feeds and uploaded files to different server destinations.

The Live+ Mobile App is in use daily by broadcasters to cover breaking news, stream live events, and conduct impromptu interviews in many situations that are impractical for traditional broadcast equipment. Broadcasters have delivered live and up-close coverage of California wildfires, flooding in the U.K., and severe winter storms. Sports reporters have taken their phones onto the field after a game to conduct live interviews with coaches and players and in the stands and outside stadiums to talk with fans. The app can transmit live or recorded video using the built-in front and rear cameras on the phone or tablet, enabling reporters to set up and shoot a breaking news story without the need for a conventional transmission truck or camera operator.

Using Dejero’s patent-pending Intelligent Connection Management technology, the Live+ Mobile App transmits low-latency video over bonded cellular and Wi-Fi connections. New with Vers. 3.0, devices can connect via Wi-Fi to satellite Internet transmission systems such as BGAN terminals for connectivity from especially remote locations. The up-to latency mode enables the user to set a latency threshold for the shortest-possible delay based on network conditions, and the app now enables lower transport resolutions to accommodate low-bandwidth connections.

The Live+ Mobile App is integrated with the Live+ Portal, which enables ingest control to preview and route feeds from multiple field-deployed Live+ transmission devices to any available Live+ Broadcast Server or Live+ Cloud server, for delivery to air or streaming to a website. With the cloud-based Live+ Portal, operators can also geolocate and monitor devices, as well as view performance analytics.

Ver. 3.0 of the Live+ Mobile App is available from the Apple App Store. A license is required to send live feeds and recorded or edited files to server destinations.
