Combination of Dejero GateWay and FileCatalyst gives broadcast field crews even faster ‘on the go’ file transfer abilities
Dejero and FileCatalyst Team Up to Increase File Transfer Speeds in the Field
London(14 Aug 2018)
Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has partnered with FileCatalyst, a pioneer in managed file transfers with a world-leading accelerated file transfer solution, to enable broadcasters to move large data quickly, securely, and reliably back to base while in the field.
A combination of the Dejero GateWay mobile Internet connectivity solution and FileCatalyst Direct enables remote reporting teams to access their station's media asset management (MAM) systems—to source b-roll or background video—to create fully packaged reports, news clips, and to upload complete stories faster.
“FileCatalyst customers are used to fast transfers of broadcast-quality video content, but getting those files back to studio as quickly as possible in challenging field environments, where connectivity and bandwidth are an issue, is now possible with the Dejero GateWay solution,” said Elton Carneiro, director of strategic partnerships and cloud services at FileCatalyst. “It was difficult for us to find a solution to match the speed of file transfers our customers are used to, but Dejero GateWay has proven to be the exception, and this partnership takes fast file transfers in the field to a whole new level.”
FileCatalyst Direct allows broadcasters to send media content and digital assets globally at very high speed, ingest media from outside colleagues and production teams, and manage production, post-production, and editing locations. In addition, Dejero GateWay can offer FileCatalyst users the benefits of fast, reliable, and secure connectivity to the Internet, private networks, and cloud services while in the field by blending cellular connections from multiple mobile network providers with other available wired and wireless IP connections. Dejero algorithms intelligently manage the fluctuating bandwidth of individual connections to provide the reliability and speed that broadcasters depend on, when and where they need it.
“Our customers need to get their content back to the station as quickly as possible, so combining the two technologies adds real value,” said Kevin Fernandes, vice president of sales at Dejero. “Dejero GateWay provides field crews with reliable, high throughput connectivity to quickly and easily upload and download large files to and from MAM systems, private networks, and cloud services that are increasingly being adopted by broadcasters and media organization, without having to return to the station. This means the crews can spend more time in the field, covering more news stories and live events, and less time commuting back and forth between assignments.”
The combination of Dejero GateWay mobile Internet connectivity solution and FileCatalyst Direct will be demonstrated at Dejero’s IBC Stand 11.C15 at the RAI, Amsterdam, 14-18 September 2018.
