Blue Sky Network announced a partnership with Videosoft Global for the adoption of its innovative video compression technology. This collaboration will offer customized video solutions to end-users around the world who seek live streaming, along with optimized communications bandwidth from critical and austere locations.
Blue Sky Network will leverage Videosoft Global's expertise in adaptive video compression and transmission protocols to enhance its existing SkyLink family of satellite communication (SATCOM) solutions. SkyLink operates on the Iridium Certus® network, a flexible, award-winning platform with bandwidth solutions that scale to meet size, weight, and power requirements.
Blue Sky Network will embed Videosoft Global’s real-time video streaming capability into their SATCOM terminal, bundled with Iridium Certus 100 airtime. Users that require real-time video surveillance for security, operational efficiency, or research, among many others, will benefit from increased usability and responsiveness, as well as customization and prioritization of audio, video, and data transmissions.
“We look forward to collaborating with Blue Sky Network, which has proven expertise in SATCOM innovation and enthusiasm for delivering complex engineering solutions to enterprise and government customers,” said Stewart McCone, CEO of Videosoft Global. "With the addition of SkyLink to the Videosoft stable, we are able to introduce a new era of live streaming and a full turn-key solution that bridges a crucial gap for end-users and transforms our plug-and-play vision into a tangible reality."
“Our clients require live streaming technology for improved situational awareness with small form factor devices to meet their critical mission needs,” said Tucker Morrison, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Sky Network. “Blue Sky Network is committed to offering the complete package of best-in-class solutions to our customers. This partnership with Videosoft now represents a step-change improvement to the solutions we offer.”
In addition to the joint engineering development, Videosoft will become a preferred reseller of Blue Sky Network’s satellite communications solutions, including both hardware and Iridium Certus service.
