Dejero Unveiling New EnGo 260 At IBC
Dejero, a provider of cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, is unveiling its new EnGo 260 HEVC mobile transmitter at the upcoming IBC 2019 show (Sept. 13-17, RAI Amsterdam), stand 11.C15. The 5G ready EnGo 260 provides enhanced picture quality, exceptional user experience, and continues the tradition of providing the most versatile and durable mobile transmitter on the market.
The new EnGo 260 weighs 30% less while maintaining the ruggedness that Dejero is known for and also features an 85% larger screen improving visibility and accessibility to users. Like previous generations of EnGo transmitters, field crews can reliably deliver the best possible picture quality in any scenario, even when the available bandwidth may be limited.
EnGo 260 comes with a significantly more powerful internal rechargeable battery that provides 120 minutes of use and is compatible with and recharged by standard gold mount and v-mount ENG batteries.
Covering a global story or event means traveling the distance — and the new EnGo 260 was built with this in mind. Now with global modems and field-user accessible SIMs, international travel is more convenient, cost effective, and user friendly. The addition of a professional-grade mini XLR interface for IFB ensures worry-free communication from the director to on-air talent or camera operator — while live or ready for live.
Featuring Dejero’s patented Smart Blending Technology, EnGo 260 aggregates multiple network technologies, including cellular and satellite, from multiple network providers to create a virtual “network of networks” that delivers enhanced reliability. The technology dynamically and intelligently manages the fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss, and latency differences of individual connections in real-time, to choose the optimal path to route IP packets to their destination. The result is increased reliability and expanded availability from connection diversity and higher bandwidth when and where it is needed.
The EnGo 260 also encompasses a collection of features that reliably delivers exceptional picture quality with extremely low latency, even in challenging network conditions. These include enhanced picture quality with auto-transport, adaptive bitrate encoding, and HEVC. Furthermore, unique content adaptive encoding adjusts the encoding process based on the amount of motion in the live shot to greatly improve picture sharpness in challenging network conditions. Camera operators can seamlessly and automatically transition from a limited motion talking-head shot to a high-motion shot without any softening of the picture or introduction of compression artifacts.
The industry-renowned mobile transmitter supports 20 Mb/s encoding and 1080p 50/60 and uses a unique hybrid encoding technique — a combination of hardware and software encoding that provides the most efficient and flexible way to deliver the best picture quality. Hybrid encoding balances performance and power consumption and enables easy remote updates to transmitters deployed in the field. Advanced RF design with optimized antenna performance results in a stronger and more reliable signal from cellular towers.
“We are continuously listening to the feedback and needs of our customers, and this latest iteration of the EnGo combines the traditional functionalities that customers love in addition to new features that will enhance the user experience and efficiency,” said Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management, Dejero. “We look forward to unveiling the EnGo 260 at IBC and demonstrating how it enhances remote contribution workflows.”
Built with aircraft aluminum construction and polycarbonate ABS bumpers, the professional-grade EnGo is designed for durability to withstand on-the-go daily use by news, sports, and live production crews. A one-button, sub 30 second start-up, easy to navigate user interface, and automated settings that adapt to the available bandwidth make EnGo 260 an unparalleled experience in terms of usability and picture quality in the field.
Visitors can see a demonstration of the EnGo 260 on Dejero’s IBC stand 11.C15.
