DigiGone on Thuraya

DigiGone has announced that its video communications system and software platform has been approved for use with Thuraya’s IP terminals.

DigiGone says that its product, optimised for narrowband satellite channels, offers encrypted video and audio conferencing, video streaming, Voice over IP (VoIP), IM Chat and file transfer using a small fraction of the bandwidth needed for some other video telecommunication solutions.

The company adds that the system can be customised, depending on users’ bandwidth speed requirements and their choice of audio and video quality. They can raise or lower bandwidth at any time during a call for better image resolution or reduced cost.

“DigiGone is an important addition to our current service offerings and an ideal tool to enable videoconferencing for Thuraya IP, IP+ and Maritime Broadband customers,” said Randy Roberts, vice president of innovation at Thuraya.

“This cost-effective communications solution will be made available through our extensive network of service partners globally for use across a variety of vertical markets including maritime, energy and humanitarian NGOs.”

Michael Dunleavy, president and CEO of DigiGone, noted that he believes that his company will be able to provide secure video and audio transmission for videoconferencing to Thuraya’s customers “with satellite airtime costs much lower than other teleconferencing services.”

DigiGone says that the software now certified to work with Thuraya’s Maritime Broadband terminal, can be installed on most PCs, laptops, tablets or smartphones.
