Solution enables live video broadcast from 27 of the racing vessels
SpeedCast’s innovative media transmission solution and value added services have been installed on 27 out of 29 competing vessels, in order to benefit from livestreaming capabilities, monitoring and connectivity.
“When the race first began 27 years ago, we would never have imagined it would be possible to broadcast live from the ocean in such challenging conditions,” said Bruno Gicquel, MSS Maritime Director, SpeedCast. “Today, the advances in technology coupled with the unprecedented demand for high-quality, real-time media content have made this possible. Using our world class satellite communications solution, coupled with the SpeedCast Clipway technology, developed by SpeedCast’s R&D team, we have created an innovative offering that is enabling us to meet this unprecedented demand.”
SpeedCast’s Clipway will play a big role as the solution will allow the Race Headquarters, family members and the general audience to watch the race in real time. Clipway can store, forward and livestream broadcast quality video and can accept all broadcasting formats, including HD, SDI and GoPro, which differentiates it from competing technologies.
Piers Cunningham, Vice President, Maritime Services, SpeedCast commented: “To be able to provide our satellite communication solutions to so many competitors at this incredibly challenging event is a great accolade for us at SpeedCast and is a testament to the breadth of product offerings we have in the Maritime industry.”
