You no longer need to rely on video footage shot by other broadcasters, or to hire a satellite newsgathering truck to cover major events.
With BGAN you can cover breaking stories on the spot, live. Within minutes you can be connected to the newsroom with the camera rolling, sending live interviews with eye-witnesses and live footage as events unfold.
And if you’re among the first on the scene, you can even sell your footage to broadcasters and news aggregators.
Inmarsat has developed three low-cost, end-to-end solutions for live video, with minimal technology set-up and investment. All are compatible with the entire suite of BGAN Streaming IP rates.They are:
Low capex proposition – a streamlined version of the high-end systems used by leading international broadcasters
Hardware-lite option – a pay-as-you-use version of the low capex proposition where you don’t need to buy or hire hardware
Managed content delivery – an affordable, end-to-end, managed solution for live video.
For extra peace of mind, both BGAN and our handheld satellite phone, IsatPhone Pro, pinpoint your exact location – so you can let colleagues know precisely where you are.
Use IsatPhone Pro for quick calls back to the studio or to stay in touch with family while you’re away. The service is accessible worldwide, so you can depend on it for your voice communications wherever the news takes you.
