Broadcast Tech News – Dejero wins second Technology and Engineering Emmy

Dejero has been awarded a second Technology and Engineering Emmy Award in the category of Video over Bonded Cellular Internet (VoCIP) technology, recognizing the Waterloo, ON company’s innovation in the industry. Dejero’s Smart Blending and hybrid encoding technologies work in concert to form an integrated system which responds in real time to changes in network quality and video content. That’s transformed how broadcasters transmit live content from the field, using cellular networks, and allows newsgathering crews greater flexibility in terms of locations from which they can transmit a live shot. Last year, Dejero was awarded its first Technology and Engineering Emmy for Excellence in Engineering Creativity, recognizing a decade of achievement in the field of live transmission. This year’s awards will be presented at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas on Sunday, Apr. 19, during NAB 2020.
