KVH has launched YOURlink, a pay-per-video content delivery service that can be used to distribute company-produced videos to all vessels in a fleet, while also introducing a partnership with ChartCo to transmit digital charts and publications to ships under the name CHARTlink. Both services will form part of KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery platform.
KVH has announced the introduction of its new AgilePlans, a monthly subscription-based VSAT contract that requires no initial CapEx by the user and no long-term commitment, meaning it can be cancelled at any time – a product the company is defining as ‘Connectivity as a Service’ (CaaS).
KVH has announced that its content delivery service IP-MobileCast will now include high-resolution updates from Applied Weather Technology (AWT) as a standard feature, meaning that subscribing vessels will receive global weather data four times per day without incurring any data transmission costs.
UK-based company Satstream Media has announced the launch of SatstreamNet, a multicast-IP content delivery network developed specifically for the maritime industry.
Following on from its recent acquisition of Headland Media, KVH is to further extend its strategic move into the content delivery space with the launch of a new IP-MobileCast service for its mini-VSAT Broadband satellite network.
KVH Industries has acquired Headland Media, a UK-based company which distributes licenced content such as movies, sports and music to the maritime industry. It is the first time that KVH has moved from providing vessels with a satellite connection to also offering its own content via its mini-VSAT Broadband network.
Digital Ship magazine provides the latest information about maritime satellite communications technology, software systems, navigation technology, computer networks, data management and TMSA. It is published ten times a year.
