Drone distribution Dejero has formed a strategic technology partnership with small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) manufacturer Aeryon Labs. The tie-up will enable secure, real-time distribution of HD video captured by Aeryon sUAS through the Dejero LIVE+ platform. This will enable broadcasters to integrate live video captured with drone technology into their newsgathering, sports coverage, and video productions. Brian Cram, chief executive of Dejero said: “For drone-based video to work in a live broadcast situation, broadcasters need low-latency, broadcast-quality video from a highly reliable drone system that’s easy to use, quick to deploy, and proven in the field. That is what the Aeryon drone system gives them.” The Dejero Aeryon offering combines Dejero LIVE+ transmitters and cloud services with the imagery captured by the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS. www.dejero.com EPGs BBC Worldwide has expanded its contract with EBS, the provider of EPG data, to include non-linear EPG data services. BBC Worldwide has installed EBS’ multi-platform, multi-territory Pawa EPG software system for aiding the delivery data to VOD and download-to- Own (DTO) platforms such as iTunes, Netflix, Google Play and Amazon Instant Video. BBC Worldwide operators will use the Pawa system to automatically generate templates for non-linear distribution. www.pawa.tv KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 102 JUNE 2015 | 25
