UASC rolls out at-sea TV to 44 vessels Featured

United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) has installed XChange Media, Marlink’s at-sea television system, on 44 of its vessels to provide on-demand multi-lingual content for crew via their personal devices.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}UASC’s fleet is already equipped with Marlink Sealink VSAT, which meant that XChange Media could be deployed across the fleet remotely, with the process completed in less than a week.

Daily updated content is provided to the ships, which can be shared among all crew members at no extra cost to them. The seafarers can use their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops via Wi-Fi either in their cabins or in communal areas to access the service.

Marlink says that UASC will not face extra airtime costs for the delivery of the content as it is separated from Sealink VSAT bandwidth, meaning that it will also have no impact on contracted traffic speeds.

“XChange Media boosts the already high-end crew welfare facilities possible via our Sealink VSAT service,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink.

“We are extremely pleased XChange Media has been selected by UASC to deliver content to their crew. By delivering high quality, multi-lingual news, sport and also TV, UASC can provide a more relaxing environment for their hardworking crew members, in turn increasing job satisfaction and employee retention.”{/mprestriction}
