The company says that its Mobile Video Surveillance system provides video images requiring data transmission as low as 5 kbps, when most other systems operate at a rate of 100 kbps to 2 Mbps. According to SingTel, the most common bandwidth subscribed to by ships for this kind of service is 64 kbps.
SingTel says that its Mobile Video Surveillance supports multicast and live video viewing on mobile devices on iOS and Android. It features AES256 encryption and has been tested over FleetBroadband and VSAT communication systems.
The company says that the product could prove particularly useful for those covered by the recent regulation by India’s Ministry of Shipping requiring vessels to be equipped with CCTV cameras as part of their anti-piracy measures for all Indian Flagged Ships.
