BazePort launches entertainment service for deepsea market

Baze Technology has launched a new on-demand entertainment service designed to meet the needs of the deep-sea vessels market.

While crew welfare in the form of modern IPTV entertainment is now part of the expected in some maritime segments, this is not the case in a typical tanker, bulk and container vessels. The slow adoption may have been caused by IPTV installations being considered too complicated and costly for the purpose. 

The new service, called BazePort Seea allows for cloud publishing of text, pictures and videos. This way crew is updated on safety, training and general information.  

Video-on-demand entertainment on BazePort Seea is like the Netflix experience, according to BazePort. However, content can be viewed offline without using the vessel bandwidth.

All major Hollywood studios are represented, as well as some independent ones. BazePort seea includes thousands of hours of content to watch and listen to through RSS news and podcasts.  

Baze also works with renowned news providers like BBC, CNN, Euronews and TV Patrol.

COVID-19 has presented additional challenges for seafarers with extended periods of time onboard. BazePort Seea is a whole entertainment system with an at-home user experience designed to boost crew wellbeing. The included set-top box allows the crew to socialise while watching a movie or the news together on the onboard TV set. 

Outside of the deep-sea fleet, more than 8500 subscribers already use the service.
