Ideal Systems expands bonded rental service
October 18, 2016
Ideal Systems has expanded its coverage area for its Ideal-Live mobile bonded IP transmitter rental service to include India, China, Dubai, Japan and Taiwan. The cloud enabled rental service, already up and running in South East Asia since the start of the year, is based on equipment from Canadian manufacturer Dejero. Ideal Systems will now stock Dejero’s EnGo portable bonded transmitters and their Broadcast Servers locally in all of its twelve offices across Asia ready for immediate rental.
The portable EnGo unit encodes the video live in the field and sends it live over bonded combinations of multiple 3G or 4G LTE, LAN, WiFi and Satellite together to create a secure IP connection between the remote camera crew and the Dejero virtual video switch in the cloud. Once in the cloud it can be routed live to the Broadcast Server at the broadcaster’s studios for output as HD-SDI into the production workflow and can also be routed live to social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube in HD.
“The Ideal-Live rental business has been growing steadily all year and a number of our rental customers have subsequently bought the Dejero IP newsgathering system and are now coming back to rent additional units to cover special events when they need more capacity to add additional camera positions for certain live events including sports events and news events such as elections. This is being repeated across the region, we recently delivered Dejero systems to broadcasters in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore” Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO Ideal Systems, S.E.A. region.
Widi Kurniawan, Head of Engineering SBOTV, Indonesia. “We see a lot of developments in media industry specifically with live TV Broadcasting, our need to deliver live events is increasing. We have experienced significant problems covering live broadcasts from some areas in Indonesia that are hard to access using SNG vehicles, so a reliable, lightweight and easy to transport device is more appropriate. We have found the answer to our problems by using Dejero, not just the technological advantage, but also commercially it is budget friendly for us.”
