The ability to report breaking news stories live via voice or video broadcast is essential for journalists and broadcasters, irrespective of their location. Fast deployment of staff and equipment is key to reporting the latest news.
Often with broadcasting, longer periods of time are spent in one location and therefore more static solutions such as VSAT satellite communications systems, that are appropriate offering a cost-effective option to high-quality video and data transfer.
Often reporting from remote areas where GSM is unreliable or non-existent, satellite terminals provide high data throughput and are highly portable, light and quick to set-up.
Satellite can provide live-streaming and by bonding two EXPLORER 710 terminals together can achieve streaming rates over 1 Mbps.
Designed to operate in the most extreme conditions our media equipment has been used by reporters and broadcasters all over the world enabling mobile and quick to deploy satellite communications systems to undertake live broadcasts or report back to the studio in a few minutes!
Many satellite phones also incorporate inbuilt SOS and tracking facilities that are ideal for reporters working in remote or dangerous surroundings.
