Abu Dhabi Media calls on Dejero for live news reporting



Abu Dhabi Media has deployed a range of Dejero equipment in order to enhance its live news reporting. This has included Dejero EnGo 260 mobile transmitters, WayPoint receivers and CuePoint low latency return video servers, following a 2020 tender that was won by local systems integrator and Dejero partner, Ideal Systems.

The Dejero technology has reportedly been central to Abu Dhabi Media’s successful live coverage of a number of events since it was rolled out. The use of EnGo 260 transmitters, WayPoint receivers and CuePoint return servers allowed the national broadcaster to capture high-quality, flawless coverage of a fireworks display, something that is notoriously complex to accomplish with low-latency but was achieved using the Hybrid Encoding Technology built into the Dejero kit.

“We are delighted to have been awarded the contract for the overall newsroom upgrade at Abu Dhabi Media,” said Ayman Alkhatib of Ideal Systems. “Switching the broadcaster’s live news reporting technology to Dejero represents a significant win in the region. “During testing, the EnGo outclassed other products in terms of picture quality and performance. Abu Dhabi Media also uses CuePoint extensively for confidence monitoring and plans to leverage the technology for teleprompting in the future. Full 5G coverage is coming in the UAE and Abu Dhabi Media is ready to roll this out with Dejero.”
