Satellite Communications is a cornerstone of media communications for reporters gathering news and for broadcasting news from remote locations for distribution around the globe.

Both BGAN and VSAT technologies can be utilized for media organizations to deliver live video and audio broadcasts, store and forward video news clips, and provide field news reporters with access to their office resources such as email, Internet, VPN and telephone services.

BGAN is a highly portable technology that can be hand carried in a case with the reporter’s laptop computer making it ideal for news teams working in remote regions, war zones or disaster sites.  For longer term deployments or situations where higher bandwidth speeds are required, auto-pointing, portable VSAT systems are available.

Media organizations will typically utilize video encoder solutions that optimize transmissions over satellite.  These video encoding solutions compress the video so that it can be transmitted effectively over a lower speed link.
