Panasonic has already announced commitments to two Intelsat Epic satellites and Eutelsat’s 172B satellite, and says it is in the process of contracting for XTS high-throughput satellites to target the aeronautical, energy, maritime, and mining markets.

Through this agreement OmniAccess will gain access to Panasonic’s existing capacity, currently contracted capacity and the future XTS satellite network, to offer to its yachting and cruise ship customers.

“This is an important agreement for both OmniAccess and our customers. By leveraging Panasonic’s unique XTS solutions and scale of operations, we can guarantee our clients will remain at the very forefront of the exciting new technology developments that lay ahead, for all regions of the world, for many years to come,” said Bertrand Hartman, OmniAccess’ CEO.

“Furthermore Panasonic’s unparalleled expertise in aeronautical entertainment systems and content delivery solutions offers many promising prospects to further expand our industry leading Plexus-TV yacht and cruise services portfolio.”{/mprestriction}
