New LivePlus for Windows app is the only all-in-one solution on the market that transmits high-quality video and simultaneously receives ultra-low latency return video and teleprompter feeds on a single screen
New Dejero LivePlus for Windows app allows reporters to transmit high quality video and simultaneously receive ultra-low latency return video and teleprompter feeds on a single customizable screen on a laptop.
“LivePlus for Windows is an exciting addition to the LivePlus toolkit that makes the home studio set-up even simpler for journalists and presenters, needing less equipment and minimizing costs,” said Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management at Dejero. “It allows the creation and delivery of highly professional content using existing computing equipment; saving the station’s inventory of mobile transmitters for crews working out in the field.”
Reporters can receive up to two return video feeds simultaneously through the Dejero app, that can be used for teleprompting, as well as for program video delivered via a Dejero CuePoint return server installed at the station. Delivering teleprompter and return video feeds with latency as low as 250ms, CuePoint combined with LivePlus for Windows helps the on-air presenters to stay synchronized with central production during live broadcasts. Presenters view everything on a customizable user interface, giving them confidence monitoring and teleprompter scripts, while ensuring they can look directly at the camera and adjust their on-camera position to account for overlays and graphics.
The app supports a laptop’s internal camera, an external USB webcam, or connection of an SDI or HDMI camera, presenting a ‘camera preview’ tile on screen as a confidence monitor.
The app supports the use of an internal camera, an external USB webcam, or the connection of an SDI or HDMI camera. The camera preview tile serves as a confidence monitor for the user. Users can easily build a bespoke display layout by moving or resizing the camera preview and the return video or teleprompter tiles around the screen, or on a second, external monitor. The app also offers flexible audio options — supporting IFB or return video audio, and multiple wired and wireless earpiece options.
“The Dejero LivePlus family of apps has already transformed the way journalists deliver news, allowing them to broadcast from virtually anywhere with their smartphones and tablets but more recently, allowing them to quickly adapt to the ongoing pandemic that forced broadcast workflows out of the studio and into the home-studio at short notice,” continued Monterroso. “We’re really pleased to be able to build on this service and further simplify high-pressure tasks by providing an all-in-one solution on a single screen”.
