WATERLOO, ONTARIO—Dejero may not be vying for gold at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but it will be on hand to help support broadcasters. The Canadian-based provider of IP network connectivity options will have on-site support during the games and will allow broadcasters to rent, lease or buy systems to aid their coverage.
As part of its offerings, Dejero will establish its own Wi-Fi hotspots in key locations to secure bandwidth. Broadcasters can acquire packages that include access to hotspots and cellular coverage using mobile transmitters. Connecting with Live+ mobile transmitters, crews can acquire and transmit video over cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
Deadline for broadcasters to book Dejero equipment for the Olympics will be Feb. 29.
The 2016 Summer Olympics will take place from Aug. 5-21 in Rio de Janeiro. Dejero has previously offered similar support during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
