New small form factor receiver and return video/teleprompter server are ideal for rapid relocation in portable flyaway kits and production vehicles
Waterloo, Ontario, June 9, 2020 — Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide Emmy® award winning video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has introduced new short-depth versions of its 1U rack-mounted WayPoint receiver and CuePoint return video and teleprompter server to its portfolio. The smaller chassis of WayPoint 50 and CuePoint 50 make them the perfect fit for remote production vehicles where space is at a premium, and for portable flyaway kits that simplify transport and enable rapid response in case of a disaster recovery scenario or for contingency preparedness as part of a broader business continuity plan.
Recently Dejero deployed advanced release versions of the new WayPoint 50 and CuePoint 50 as part of a portable flyaway kit to support a facility with its complete evacuation in response to social distancing regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new WayPoint 50 single-output compact receiver reconstructs broadcast-quality video transported over multiple IP connections from a Dejero transmitter, decodes HEVC or AVC, and outputs to SDI or MPEG-TS workflows. In addition to in-vehicle and portable kit installation, WayPoint 50 is the ideal tool for stations that need just a single output for their broadcast workflow.
The compact Dejero CuePoint 50 return feed server sends low-latency live program video and teleprompter feeds to on-air presenters, camera operators, and other production personnel in the field, to help them stay synchronized with central production during live broadcasts and allow them to adjust their on-camera position to account for overlays and graphics. Up to eight output feeds can be viewed on tablets, smartphones, or regular monitors.
“Broadcast equipment that’s quick to deploy is critical in disaster recovery scenarios and to have on hand as part of contingency planning,” said Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management at Dejero. “The COVID-19 pandemic has seen broadcasters having to quickly evacuate their buildings and move equipment to secure locations. And increasingly, we’ve seen broadcasters needing to move critical equipment from their stations that may be in the path of hurricanes or severe flooding. That’s why we’ve added compact, quickly deployable versions of our receivers and servers to our portfolio that can go anywhere, helping ensure business continuity in these challenging scenarios, while also providing more options for remote broadcasts.”
WayPoint 50 and CuePoint 50 can be integrated into a portable flyaway kit and easily moved to any location to support remote production workflows. Combined with a Dejero GateWay network aggregation device which provides reliable connectivity using multiple connection paths, and Dejero PathWay encoder, the small form factor WayPoint 50 and CuePoint 50 are ideal for quick response to disaster recovery scenarios, such as keeping a station on-air during flooding, severe storms, or evacuations demanded by a pandemic such as the COVID-19 crisis. Dejero can provide assistance in customizing the kits for the specific needs of customers.
Driven by its vision of reliable connectivity anywhere, Dejero blends multiple Internet connections to deliver fast and dependable connectivity required for cloud computing, online collaboration, and the secure exchange of video and data. With its global partners, Dejero supplies the equipment, software, connectivity services, cloud services, and support to provide the uptime and bandwidth critical to the success of today’s organizations. Headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, Dejero is trusted for broadcast-quality video transport and high-bandwidth Internet connectivity around the world.
