Dejero Transforms KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD and rsquo;s Mobile Broadcast Truck into Mobile TV Station

Dejero has made it possible for broadcasters NBC San Diego, KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD, to turn its new mobile broadcast truck into a self-contained, end-to-end mobile TV studio. The Dejero equipment on board the truck — including the Dejero GateWay M6E6 network aggregation device, PathWay E encoder, and a WayPoint 104 receiver — gives KNSD-TV and KUAN-LD the bandwidth to work fully independently in the field, processing, editing and distributing live raw video without reliance on teams and equipment located back at the broadcast facility. The truck, which was built by Emmy award-winning truck builder and mobile integrator, Accelerated Media Technologies, (AMT), is able to act as a backup station in case the main broadcast facility needs to be evacuated, a scenario that could have happened during the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
