Dejero has announced that it has been shortlisted in the Content and Communications Infrastructure category of the IABM Design & Innovation Awards. The awards will cast the spotlight on new solutions or products that bring benefit or create new opportunities in the broadcast and media industry.
Dejero's award entry was based on its LIVE+ Booster, a high-gain connection and signal booster for video transmissions over cellular networks.
"We're delighted to announce the shortlisted candidates in our nine categories and highlight these pioneering products and services," said Peter White, CEO, IABM. "Overall, the number and quality of entries are truly indicative of the talent and creativity inherent in the industry today. And, as we transition through some significant changes, innovation and forward thinking have never been more important."
"Advances in bonded cellular technology have transformed electronic newsgathering for broadcasters of all sizes, and now the Dejero LIVE+ Booster makes these solutions more versatile and reliable than ever. We're honored that the product has been shortlisted for the IABM's prestigious Design & Innovation Award," said Brian Cram, CEO, Dejero. "We designed the LIVE+ Booster to offer significant improvements in uplink performance during adverse network conditions, so that mobile crews can go live with high-quality video even when cellular network reception might be poor."
The LIVE+ Booster is a vehicle-mounted device that uses an array of up to 12 high-gain antennas to provide a high-reach connection and signal booster for bonded uplink transmissions. By simply plugging Dejero's powerful and easy-to-use portable LIVE+ 20/20 Transmitter into the LIVE+ Booster, a mobile crew can turn a news vehicle into one large antenna for the best possible resilient connection. Both devices can be powered up and ready to transmit low-latency, broadcast-quality video in seconds, making them ideal in fast-breaking news situations that require the team to be immediately mobile.
Shortlisted entries will be judged by a panel of independent specialists chaired by John Ive, IABM director of business development and technology. Winners will be announced at the IABM reception and awards ceremony at IBC2014 in Amsterdam on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 6:30 p.m.
