Speedcast unveils network-optimised remote video streaming solution

Speedcast has launched a new network-optimised remote video and audio communications solution, Speedcast SmartView.

Powered by Speedcast partner Harvest Technology Group (HTG) and its ultra-low bandwidth Network Optimised Livestreaming solution, Speedcast SmartView allows secure, high-definition video and audio to be streamed in real-time via satellite at a fraction of the bandwidth previously required.

As a result, organisations looking to transform their operations through digitalisation can use Speedcast SmartView to conduct inspections and repairs for assets operating anywhere in the world, without requiring technicians to travel and work at remote sites. Available in multiple formats, Speedcast SmartView can be used on remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for subsea inspections and research, at remote sites for monitoring, and on wearable devices.

“Video collaboration technologies can significantly improve operations in the field and in subsea,” said Jeffrey Irwin, vice president, product management at Speedcast. “Speedcast SmartView’s unique proposition is its ability to deliver high-quality video and audio content over satellite connection. When an ROV, staff or crew member is conducting work at a remote site, the ideal scenario of minimal delays, little-to-no operational wait times, and seamless collaboration enables effective, real-time decision-making.”

New Plymouth Underwater recently trialled Speedcast SmartView on its state-of-the-art ROVs in the South Pacific Ocean and confirmed the solution’s ability to deliver high-definition live streaming in different bandwidth conditions.

“Diving, subsea and marine services are the core of our business and it is critical for our team to stay connected, as well as collaborate with headquarters, via real-time video feeds,” said Mike Sharp, director at New Plymouth Underwater. “Speedcast SmartView’s ability to deliver high-definition video content over satellite connectivity is able to help us to achieve operational efficiency, increase worker safety and drive cost savings.”

In October 2021, Harvest Technology Group announced the execution of a formal reseller agreement with Speedcast. This announcement of the integration of Harvest’s Network Optimised Livestreaming capabilities with Speedcast SmartView is the next step in that agreement between the two companies.
