notélé, a Belgian local broadcaster equips its journalists with the Dejero LIVE+ Mobile app.
notélé has installed the application Dejero LIVE + Mobile app on its journalists’ smartphones. LIVE+ Mobile App is an iOS application developed by the Canadian company Dejero which allows live video broadcasting from almost anywhere. The application is designed for journalists and is ideal for covering breaking news, interviews and unexpected live events.
“We were attracted by the quality of video transmission and functionality of the application. Our journalists do not need training and can start a live transmission by the push of a button of the LIVE+ Mobile App. ” Stany Tevesz – Technical Director notélé.
With the help of a smartphone or tablet and the LIVE+ Mobile app, Broadcasters may dramatically increase the number of video sources and start broadcasting live in seconds. Dejero simplifies the capture, transmission, management, and live streaming of high quality video via a set of technical means consisting of transmitters, software, virtualized tools and broadcast servers.
This platform manages and aggregates the signal via multiple connections (3G / 4G / LTE, Wi-Fi, Ethernet or satellite) to provide the best image quality while the transmitters are set up very quickly and are easy to use.
On the infrastructure side, notélé can at any time see the availability of sources via the Dejero Live+ Platform. notélé has a broadcast server enabling them to broadcast two lives simultaneously.
“We wanted to invest in a system that could evolve in the future. The fact that in addition to the iOS app, Dejero brings together under one interface a set of broadcast solutions such as suitcase or Eng camera modules sealed our choice. ” Continues Stany Tevesz – Technical Director notélé.
Notélé is a local broadcaster available via Proximus and VOO, active in the Wallonie Picarde region. This region represents the crossroads between Lille and Brussels, and between Kortrijk and Mons. notélé covers 23 towns from Comines to Enghien, via Mouscron, Tournai, Ath, Lessines, and from Mont de l’Enclus to Bernissart. This concerns 350,000 potential viewers.

The new Quad-Split yellobrik (model: PMV 1841) is a compact, portable quad-split processor that supports the display of 4x 3G/HD/SDI-SDI inputs on a single HDMI display.
In addition to its quad-split capabilities, this new unit includes an integrated 4K down converter, for applications that require 4K (12G, quad-link) HDMI monitoring.
This solution is ideal for monitoring multiple 3G, HD, and SD-SDI feeds as well as 4K monitoring. Its compact size and affordable price combined with advanced overlay features makes this an ideal solution for broadcast, outside broadcast, production and post-production monitoring requirements.
The yellobrik quad-split, coupled with an HDMI monitor, is an affordable way to display, view, and monitor multiple SDI signals. Powerful monitoring features (typically only found in large multiview systems) are unique for such a compact self-contained quad split module.
Each SDI input has the following overlays available (user configurable):
– Waveform monitor and Vectorscope
– 16 character IMD (text ID)
– 4, 8 or full 16 channel audio metering
– Input video format
– Safe area / 4:3 extraction and center cross markers
– Video and audio alarm indicators
All controls are located on the quad-split itself. Module settings are easily configured on the HDMI output using a rotary control and on-screen menu. The PMV 1841 is also yelloGUI compatible, allowing for remote configuration and control, as well as storing and restoring settings using a PC or MAC via the module’s USB port.
The HDMI output can be configured to display quad-split or full screen display of any of the 4 inputs. In 4K monitoring mode, the 4 x SDI inputs (12G) are stitched together into a single image and then down converted for display on the connected HDMI monitor. The overlay features are not available in 4K mode.
As with all yellobrik solutions, this module provides high quality performance and reliability at a cost-effective price point.
The yellobrik Quad-Split will be on show at the LYNX Technik IBC 2015 Hall 8, Stand C70.

With IBC just a few days away, PHABRIX is releasing its Qx UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 combined generator/ analyzer to the industry in Hall 10 B12. Developed using the very latest FPGA technology, PHABRIX once again provides a unique solution to the broadcast industry’s latest trend – 4K and 8K.
The key differentiator of the Qx is its ability to provide generation and analysis tools on signals carrying up to 48Gbps payloads with both video and audio support.
Incorporating the ‘World’s first’ real time multi frame rate 12G-SDI physical layer analysis (eye and jitter) tool-set with automatic SMPTE compliance measurements, it provides comprehensive testing for both UHDTV1 and UHDTV2 infrastructures.
Timing is important with multi-link SDI interfaces and the PHABRIX has incorporated a suite of tools operating across a wide range of standards.
The PHABRIX Qx is controlled using an intuitive user interface consisting of mouse, keyboard and 1920×1080 display.
Support for HDR (High Dynamic Range), WCG (Wide Colour Gamut), HFR (High Frame Rate) and the advanced object based audio formats will be provided as the standards develop.
The new PHABRIX Qx hardware platform also supports the next generation of both copper and fibre uncompressed SDI interfaces and importantly for those interested in IP, SMPTE ST 2022-6 over 10GbE for IP based infrastructures.
PHABRIX has also added features to its highly successful rack mount and hand held product ranges at IBC 2015. The combined video and audio test and measurement Rx range consists of the Rx2000, Rx1000 and Rx500. The Rx2000 comes complete with integrated TFT screens and incorporated high dynamic audio speakers. It has a free on board generator and as with the 1U Rx1000 and half rack Rx500, offers rasterizer output via HDMI or SDI at 1920 x 1080.
With the release of V9.03 as a free upgrade to existing customers and the addition of Loudness monitoring and Closed Caption 608/708 monitoring as standard, the value the instruments represent is hard to convey – certainly a good reason to visit PHABRIX Hall 10 B12 to see them in action.
The PHABRIX Sx range has also received a brand new V14 release with additional format support and Dolby level generator. A new eye and jitter filter and histogram toolset has been added as part of the standard build of the PHABRIX SxE along with a separate jitter instrument. A very useful VANC/ANC grid display provides instant awareness of the ancillary signal present on the input has been added as a standard feature across the whole Sx range when purchased from new.
Finally the Sx TAG, PHABRIX’s multi interface hand held provides analogue, SDI and optical support and now features EDID display for HDMI SFP’s. This handy tool is priced as a ‘must have’ for engineers with additional support for SFP’s as they become available. Increasingly the industry is finding SFP’s in most equipment from large routers to simple switchers so the capability to test the SFP becomes increasingly important. Inserting SFP’s in and out of the cage can sometimes cause problems however the TAG has a very unique ability to easily replace its on-board SFP cage when required– and it can be done in the field.
