Dejero has updated the LIVE+ Mobile App, a solution enabling journalists to use iPhones to get stories on air fast.

dejeroThe new release of LIVE+ Mobile App enables image stabilisation on iPhone 5s and above models, smoothing out vibrations and hand shake, which is inevitable in any situation where a journalist is holding the phone to gather news or cover live events.

“To maintain our leading position in delivering content over IP networks from remote locations and even while in motion, we spend a lot of time talking to our customers,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “They have shared with us that our app is the best in terms of picture quality and reliability. They also outlined what they need to make our LIVE+ Mobile App even more useful, and we are using that feedback to add new features and enhancements in each release.”

Based on user feedback, the audio meter has also been enhanced. Available during shot set-up and while broadcasting live or recording a clip, the on-screen dBFS audio level metering more accurately reflects the sound environment, helping mobile journalists set the appropriate levels for clear commentary. The new release also supports microphones with lightning connector cables such as the iRig Mic HD, which is growing in popularity with mobile journalists.

The app now supports real-time analytics in LIVE+ Control, Dejero’s cloud-based management system. Both live and historical stream performance data including network connections and glass-to-glass latency, combined with geolocation information, helps operators in the broadcast facility monitor the performance of a live shot, and review historic shots which helps with planning of future shots.

“Mobile journalism is an increasingly significant trend, with even traditional broadcast journalists recognising the power of getting on air armed with nothing more than their iPhone,” Cram explained. “As a trend, mobile journalism is growing in importance.”
