Video solution provider Dejero joined Microsoft at IBC 2023 to showcase the flexibility and scalability of live production workflows in the cloud.
Event visitors had the chance to witness a low latency live feed from a Dejero encoder transported over blended IP connections and received in Microsoft Azure by Dejero’s video on-ramp technology.
This ingest allows broadcasters to enable new customisable cloud-based workflows, changing the curation and routing of content, transcoding, near-live editing, automated closed-captioning and distribution.
“The adoption of cloud-based workflows, especially for live content has been hindered by connectivity concerns,” said Sudheer Sirivara, general manager for media on Azure at Microsoft. “Dejero addresses this challenge by efficiently moving live content to the cloud where it can be managed, processed, and ultimately distributed anywhere. We’re excited to partner with Dejero to showcase end-end workflows in Azure that help broadcasters scale their operations quickly, cost effectively and efficiently.”
Dejero also introduced its latest EnGo mobile video transmitter at IBC, which has increased flexibility for 4K and ultra-high definition (UHD) transmission.
The EnGo 3s is built with 12G-SDI and HDMI connectors. The 12G-SDI can deliver eight times the bandwidth of HD-SDI, meaning users can handle high frame rate and live 4K-UHD signals over a single cable.
The device also carries the same features as its predecessor, the EnGo 3, including native 5G modems and a built-in GateWay mode for wireless internet connectivity, meaning users can easily work on the go.
“Transmitting a video format using one cable instead of four means there are fewer points of failure in the signal chain,” said Matt Scully, director of product management at Dejero. “It is particularly useful when space is at a premium, for example a mobile production vehicle or temporary studio. Fewer cables amount to less weight and potentially smaller routers and other components, which translate to a more ergonomic workspace and equipment flexibility.”
