Film & TV
Filming in remote locations is expensive and therefore it is essential that footage taken is safely stored or sent back to the studio for editing in the most cost efficient, reliable way possible.
Often terrestrial or cellular communications are limited or non-existent and film/TV crews need a stable line of communication and more critically, the ability to call for help in the event of an emergency.
VSAT & fixed satellite solutions
VSAT systems provide high speed, broadband satellite communications for Internet or private network communications. VSAT is ideal for any application that requires a fast satellite broadband internet connection, but is a more static solution and usually used when filming for a 3-6 month period in one location. VSAT systems can be mounted on vehicles but require engineers to install.
Portable BGAN and handheld devices
Often used in 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. These terminals can provide live-streaming and by bonding two BGAN EXPLORER 710 terminals together can achieve streaming rates over 1 Mbps.
Many satellite phones also incorporate inbuilt SOS and tracking facilities that are ideal for production crews working in remote or dangerous surroundings.
