The combined solution is said to accelerate file transfers between field and studio
Dejero and File Catalyst have established a strategic partnership to enable broadcasters to move large data files back to base while in the field. The alliance will see the combination of the Dejero GateWay mobile Internet connectivity solution and FileCatalyst Direct, enabling remote reporting teams to access to their station’s media asset management (MAM) systems to create packages reports and news clips, and to upload complete stories faster.
Elton Carneiro, director of strategic partnerships and cloud services at FileCatalyst, said: “FileCatalyst customers are used for fast transfer of broadcast-quality video content, but getting those files back to the studio as quickly as possible in challenging field environments, where connectivity and bandwidth are an issue, is now possible with the Dejero GateWay solution.
“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.”
The FileCatalyst Direct file transfer solution allows media companies to send media content and digital assets globally, 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 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.
Kevin Fernandes, vice-president of sales at Dejero, concluded: “Dejero GateWay provides field crews with reliable, high-throughput connectivity to upload and download large files to and from MAM systems, private networks, and cloud services that are increasingly being adopted by broadcasters and media organisations, 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.”
