Croatia’s public broadcaster HRT (Hrvatska radiotelevizija) uses Dejero solutions for its live coverage of news, sports and events.
The technology was provided by CS Computer Systems, Dejero’s local partner and systems integrator, and includes Dejero’s EnGo mobile transmitters, PathWay encoders and the MultiPoint content distribution service, all used in external broadcast workflows to enable on-site reporting at any time support location.
Dejero EnGo’s mobile transmitters are used daily by field workers at the station’s headquarters in Zagreb and regional stations in Čakovec, Osijek, Vukovar, Rijeka, Pula, Zadar, Šibenik and Split.
HRT crews also carry the EnGo stations with them when they travel internationally to cover major sporting events, high-profile elections and global news events.
The broadcaster also uses Dejero’s cloud-based MultiPoint service to simultaneously share feeds from various cameras to HRT’s regional centers, which are also equipped with a Dejero WayPoint receiver.
HRT uses the cloud-based management system Dejero Control to centrally manage all of its Dejero devices from a web browser. The transmitter is also able to remotely control transmitters anywhere in the world.
“As a national television broadcaster, HRT has the task of informing the public about news from all parts of Croatia and the world – and for such tasks, Dejero EnGo has proven to be a crucial tool to achieve this – even because of its robustness, transmission quality and stability in places with limited cell phone coverage,” said Petra Dražić, technical team leader for news production at HRT.
“The EnGo provides a fast, secure, and portable way to achieve robust connectivity that gives our production teams the confidence to deliver live camera feeds from anywhere, especially for prime-time productions.”
