Dejero, the Waterloo-based creator of the award-winning LIVE+ bonded wireless transmission solutions, has announced that Canada’s largest broadcasters have selected Dejero as their Cellular Newsgathering provider. The Dejero LIVE+ Platform, a diverse line of centrally-managed products, has enabled Canadian broadcasters to increase their live and recorded video content in a reliable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective manner.
Since its world-wide debut at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the Dejero LIVE+ Platform has been successfully adopted coast-to-coast by Canada’s major broadcasters. CTV/Bell Media, Rogers Media, and CBC have all successfully integrated multiple products from the Dejero LIVE+ Platform into their production workflow.
“Canadians depend on CTV News to deliver the highest quality video to their televisions, computers, tablets, and smartphones. Dejero LIVE+ Systems provide us with flexibility for capturing and transmitting live news stories to our viewers,” said Jonathan Kay, Senior Director of News Production at CTV News/Bell Media. “The portability, reliability, affordability, around-the-clock support, and short time-to-air were all important factors in selecting Dejero to be an integral part of CTV’s worldwide newsgathering system.”
“Rogers is one of the country’s leading providers of news and information for Canadians,” said Frank Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and Operations at Rogers Media. “We know our customers expect the most current and compelling media delivered to them wherever and whenever they are connected. Dejero Live+ Systems increasingly enable Rogers to deploy news teams in unique, affordable and flexible ways. Dejero is a key component of our newsgathering operations in Canada.“
“Dejero is excited to be chosen by Canada’s top broadcasters to provide the necessary tools for increasing a station’s newsgathering capabilities and content,” said Dan Mance, Dejero CEO. “While all broadcasters are challenged by the immense complexities of live newsgathering, Canadian broadcasters have the added challenges of vast terrain and extreme weather conditions. Dejero is proud that our LIVE+ Platform of products is enabling CTV/Bell Media, Rogers, and CBC to acquire broadcast-quality live and recorded video content despite these uniquely Canadian challenges.”
