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 lastest news.
High Data Throughput and reliable connectivity
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.
Easy to set-up, lightweight and portable
