Waterloo, Ontario – Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that simplify the transport of live video and real-time data across remote or mobile IP networks, announced that its mobile transmitters for live broadcast were used extensively for the production of The Runner, a groundbreaking reality competition series that played out over the course of 30 days, with three episodes airing live daily on a mobile, digital entertainment platform. From Executive Producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, The Runner was produced by award-winning Pilgrim Media Group and Executive Producers Craig Piligian and Mike Nichols, with Adaptive Studios’ Perrin Chiles and Marc Joubert also serving as executive producers.
Hosted by Matthew Patrick (aka “MatPat”), creator of YouTube series Game Theory, and featuring VICE News journalist, producer and media commentator Kaj Larsen as the on-camera expert, The Runner challenged one person to make it across America while the entire country endeavoured to solve clues that helped them and their favorite Chase Teams go after more than one million dollars in prize money.
