The mobile transmitters feature a redesigned RF and antenna architecture to unlock the full potential of 5G connections.
Dejero has unveiled the EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x 5G-native mobile transmitters with integrated internet gateway.
EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x feature a redesigned RF and antenna architecture to unlock the full potential of 5G connections. “Our team worked with world-renowned RF and antenna experts to maximize cellular-signal quality and performance on 5G networks,” says Yvonne Monterroso, director of product management at Dejero. “We’re quadrupling the number of antennas per modem and diversifying the antenna types. It’s quite an achievement to add so many antennas to a small, portable device without compromising performance and reliability.”
The new EnGo transmitters feature 4x4 MIMO antennas to achieve greater reliability, lower latency and faster speeds. Dejero made modifications to the EnGo to ensure optimal antenna isolation. “We’ve seen other 5G mobile transmitters in the market using 4G antenna design principles where interference by antennas placed too close together negatively impacts reliability, especially in areas where cellular signals may be weak, or where many cellular devices are competing for network bandwidth,” says Monterroso.
Diversity of cellular bands was another key design consideration. For EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x, Dejero selected modems that support a broad range of cellular bands. Monterroso notes, “We support additional bands used by carriers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, China, Korea and Latin America that other 5G mobile transmitters can’t connect to.”
EnGo 3x offers multi-camera support for up to four fully frame-synced HD feeds. Dejero’s new remote production transmitter is perfect for capturing feeds from multiple cameras in a single unit, reducing the cost and complexity of multi-camera sports and live-event productions. (The additional camera inputs can be licensed when needed.)
The ability to transmit in 4Kp60 10-bit HDR with eight audio channels delivers unparalleled video quality at extremely low latencies. The 4K UHD feature does not require a separate license.
EnGo 3, designed for newsgathering in locations where 5G networks have been widely deployed, incorporates all of the new features of the EnGo 265. It transports broadcast-quality live video from remote locations while also providing resilient, high-bandwidth internet access, all in one device.
The 5G networks bonded by EnGo 3 and EnGo 3x transmitters can be combined with other wireless networks, including WiFi and GEO/MEO/LEO satellite, and fixed-line (cable/DSL/fiber) wired networks. Dejero’s Smart Blending Technology intelligently manages the fluctuating bandwidth, packet loss and latency differences of the individual connections in real time, providing enhanced reliability, expanded coverage and greater bandwidth.
EnGo users in film, television and commercial-production companies can leverage the connectivity to enable real-time collaboration with dispersed teams. They can also accelerate delivery of content from remote locations directly to postproduction.
The new EnGo mobile transmitters feature built-in Hybrid Encoding Technology with the latest generation of Intel processors with customized firmware. The units can adapt to real-time feedback on the complexity of the content being encoded, such as the amount of motion.
