Dejero EnGo mobile video transmitters, a GateWay network aggregation device, and a WayPoint receiver were recently deployed for the livestream and capture of high-quality multi-camera video footage of Daimler Truck’s Hydrogen Record Run, as the German truck company’s GenH2 Truck broke the 1,000km mark on just one fill of liquid hydrogen.
Czech production company Livecast was commissioned to deliver video feeds from six cameras covering the last part of the GenH2 Truck’s journey through Berlin, Germany to its final destination at the Ministergärten green space. The truck completed the run fully loaded with a gross combined vehicle weight of 40 tons under real-life conditions, without emitting any CO2 during the long-haul trip.
The media production of the Hydrogen Record Run consisted of multiple devices capturing the action including a drone and a vehicle-based camera that followed the truck, plus four additional cameras on the ground along the route in Berlin.
The equipment was connected to six Dejero EnGo mobile video transmitters.
Honza Strohner, CEO of Livecast, said, “It was imperative that we had reliable connectivity in order to transmit high-quality live feeds from the six cameras to a large screen at the truck’s final destination, as well as sending feeds directly to our temporary production camp at the same site.
“We were able to stream live feeds to a large screen where Daimler Truck held its corporate event, and record video at a higher bitrate using the EnGo Store & Forward feature – which is perfect for post production.”
Livecast also used Dejero’s Control cloud-based management system to centrally manage its Dejero equipment from a web browser, which allowed settings to be changed on the fly. Furthermore, Dejero Smart Blending Technology, which powers the EnGo mobile video transmitter and GateWay aggregation solution, simultaneously blended together multiple wired (broadband/fibre) and wireless (3G/4G/5G, Wi-Fi, satellite) connectivity from multiple providers to deliver resilient and reliable connectivity.
“The Dejero equipment has opened up new opportunities for us as a production company. It gives us the capacity to deliver video in 3G-1080p so now we can cover many more events in many more locations and for different types of clients,” said Strohner.
