Cobham SATCOM to demonstrate the next step in live streaming at NAB 2014

Shows how to achieve over 1mbps for video and audio on the BGAN service

EXPLORER 710NAB 2014, Las Vegas - Cobham SATCOM will demonstrate the fastest ever Inmarsat BGAN High Data Rate (HDR) streaming on its booth at NAB 2014.


The leading BGAN terminal developer will show how its new software solution, designed to enable the integration - or 'bonding' - of two EXPLORER 710 BGAN terminals, can double the HDR streaming bandwidth. The result is the ability to stream live video and audio at over 1mbps, whilst still using highly portable satellite terminals.


The new bonding software will be installed on all new EXPLORER 710 terminals and made available as a free software upgrade for existing users of Cobham SATCOM's flagship BGAN solution in June 2014.


"We are looking forward to demonstrating our system to broadcasters at NAB 2014. With small, light and rugged terminals, bonding two EXPLORER 710s introduces significant mobility possibilities for professional outside broadcasting, enabling speeds previously only possible on a VSAT uplink," comments Morten Rishoej, Market Development Manager Land, Cobham SATCOM.


Visit Cobham SATCOM on booth OE1100 throughout NAB 2014 to see EXPLORER 710 and Inmarsat HDR bonding in action.
