Dejero and ExpertFile Partner to Enhance Broadcast Newsroom Access to Expert Sources

Partnership makes quality expert directory available through Dejero’s LIVE+ Control management system

NAB, LAS VEGAS, Nevada, April 24, 2017

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that simplify the transport of live video and real-time data across remote or mobile IP networks, has forged a partnership with ExpertFile, a global search engine and content platform for experts. The powerful new media collaboration now makes it easier than ever to find expert viewpoints and sources, saving broadcast reporters and editors valuable time in the newsroom.

With a focus on improving the search for credible, reliable voices and content in the newsgathering process, ExpertFile is a unique international resource for identifying subject matter experts and emerging story ideas on some of today’s most pressing topics. Dejero provides a video acquisition and management platform to reliably transport and share video from newsgathering crews and solo reporters in the field. Through the new partnership, ExpertFile’s directory of expert contacts covering over 25,000 unique topics is now immediately accessible inside Dejero’s LIVE+ Control management system from a web browser within the newsroom or in the field.

Those experts who already use Dejero equipment or software can be connected directly to the news organization, making it simple to bring together reporter and expert, wherever they are in the world.

“This partnership with ExpertFile reinforces Dejero’s strategy of collaborating with other innovative organizations to create best-of-breed, cutting edge solutions for our customers,” commented Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. “This integration takes away a level of complication for the assignment editor, keeping more functionality within a common, simple and convenient user interface. It saves time and reduces the pressure of finding credible experts.”

“We're seeing an exponential increase in the amount of video created and used by local and national news outlets around the world. In this era of fake news, there has never been a more critical need in broadcast news for credible sources,” said Peter Evans, founder and CEO of ExpertFile. “ExpertFile and Dejero’s partnership provides an important content distribution channel making it easier for journalists to pursue compelling, timely news stories by connecting them to those credible, broadcast-ready experts.” Visit Dejero’s newly located booth in the Central Hall (C1307) at NAB Show 2017 to preview some of the joint activities of Dejero and ExpertFile.
