28 June 2021, Alkmaar, Netherlands – Mobile Viewpoint, a Dutch based developer and world leading manufacturer of live streaming technology solutions, has announced the integration of Starlink as part of their offerings for network connection.
With the launch of new low orbit satellites for global network coverage by the likes of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Amazon’s Kuiper, the outlook for remote communications has never looked more versatile.
For remote live streaming for many broadcasters and live production companies, this will bring major new developments with new lower latency and higher resolution live streaming workflows. But where cellular connectivity is just not available, a commoditized satellite service that will likely evolve massively over the coming years, will provide low cost live streaming from any point on the planet.
Mobile Viewpoints prides itself on its continual innovation. As the first company to adopt internal 5G modems within their live streaming encoders, they are the first to have successfully tested Starlink allowing their mobile video units to take advantage of this new ground breaking technology. It is possible to combine both the cellular network with the services from Starlink or use it in isolation.
As with 5G, adoption is expected to accelerate over the coming months and years, and Starlink can be used with Mobile Viewpoint cellular backpack solutions. This can be part of a fully resilient network strategy to create a bonded network consisting not only of existing 3G/4G/5G cellular networks, and Wifi connections but with the addition of new satellite connections such as Starlink, this will enable even more possibilities. It will facilitate high quality live streaming for news, sports and other live streaming applications such as encrypted surveillance from places that before were impossible to obtain connectivity.
