Running on Toughbook laptops, LIVE+ NewsBook is designed to offer a powerful yet easy-to-use newsgathering system that enables crews to transmit live video feeds, as well as recorded/edited files, back to the station.
When packed with a Toughbook 31, Toughbook 52 or Toughbook 53, the LIVE+ NewsBook software provides flexible bonding of any available cellular and other data networks, including Wi-Fi and even a LAN connection, to create an aggregated data path for the Dejero adaptive encoder or for file transfers.This enables live streaming of broadcast-quality video from HD-SDI camera inputs, with HD-SDI output played to air by the Dejero LIVE+ Broadcast Server. It also enables files transfers using the bonded data links and the LIVE+ NewsBook's store-and-forward capabilities. News crews could use this capability to upload a complete and edited video package file.
The Panasonic/Dejero system differs from typical standalone transmitters in that it allows users to leverage whatever connectivity is available at a given location. Starting with the Toughbook PC's internal Wi-Fi and 4G modems, the software can also leverage available networked LAN connections, as well as bandwidth from external radios a customer attaches to the Toughbook's USB ports.
