Mobile Situation Awareness App

Full support for Inmarsat BGAN satellite terminals

NetCaster

The NetCaster® iOS App can be deployed to groups of users to provide interactive event coverage or situation awareness. Robust audio interviews are complemented by Live video, file based video and sequences of stills – as bandwidth allows.

A simple to use GUI at the receive site allows the producer to determine how media from multiple field contributors is presented to the viewers.

Key Features

CLIENT APP

Client side application for iOS Smartphone/Tablet.

INMARSAT

NetCaster can operate over Inmarsat BGAN terminals, using the voice service for audio and delivering media over the background data service.

COST CONTROL

Data and phone cost control is available via advisory accounting

WIRELESS HANDSET

Includes wireless smartphone handset feature for un-tethered IP telephone calls on certain BGAN terminals.

RICH MEDIA

Store and Forward stills, audio and H.264 encoded motion video can be delivered for inclusion in the production.

GEO-POSITIONING

Location data may be presented on a map as part of the production.

Performance

NetCaster uses RazorLink® technology to deliver live video and fast and reliable file transfer over any Internet connection, whether it is 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, or satellite.

Event Management

NetCaster “Events” define the number of remote users and the duration, both of which can be effectively unlimited if required. Once the user enters the code for the event, the app is automatically configured to deliver content to a specific NetCaster Producer.

Content received by NetCaster Producer can be used during a live show, or used later for edited highlights.  This can include video or photographs uploaded by contributors, or the live video transmitted from the field.
