KITCHENER, Ontario — Dejero will shortly introduce the company's Live+ Booster, a high-reach connection and signal booster for bonded uplink transmissions, such as cellular signals. The Live+ Booster is the newest member of Dejero's Live+ family of communications solutions. It is a vehicle-mounted device that uses an array of up to 10 high-gain antennas, enabling mobile crews to extend their connection reception during difficult transmission scenarios, such as transmitting from crowded areas where cellular networks are overloaded or in low-coverage areas.
“A newsroom's ability to cover live, breaking news as it happens can be a key differentiator in competitive markets,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “Our new Dejero LIVE+ Booster helps news crews get the live shot, even in poor cell coverage conditions. By simply plugging a Dejero Live+ 20/20 Transmitter into the Live+ Booster, a news crew can turn their news vehicle into one large antenna for the best-possible resilient connection.”
Although targeted at television news operations, Dejero Live+ has obvious applications for emergency response crews, especially in the event of a large-scale operation. The ability to get cellular connections when needed is an important consideration for emergency operations.
Paired with the LIVE+ 20/20 transmitter, the Live+ Booster provides a powerful alternative to traditional satellite or microwave transmissions. Both devices can be powered up and ready to transmit low-latency, broadcast-quality video in seconds, making them ideal in breaking news situations that require the team to be immediately mobile. A vehicle can remain connected while on the move, as well as during emergencies such as traffic pile-ups and blizzards.
Back in the control room, operators can access the Dejero Live+ Portal, the company's easy-to-use online interface, to manage and configure the Live+ Booster and Live+ 20/20 transmitter. The Live+ Booster supports bonding of up to six LTE network connections and requires nominal power from a 100V to 240V AC inverter in the vehicle.
