MTN Launches VSAT-Powered Jetstream HD Services
MTN Satellite Communications (MTN) has partnered with maritime media delivery and communications company Jetstream to launch Jetstream HD, a high-definition streaming content solution powered by MTN VSAT connections.
MTN said the partnership would enable its yacht customers to view content in HD on their televisions and mobile devices. Customers can log into the Jetstream platform through computer, smartphone or tablet devices with an Internet connection or through the Jetset, – a set-top box that delivers the Jetstream service directly into the television. Jetstream HD provides access to satellite receivers from international providers including Kartina, Orbit and DirecTV.
“We continue to build and strengthen our value-added service offerings to give our yacht customers the same luxury experiences at sea as they are accustomed to having at home,” MTN Yacht Services Managing Director Derik Wagner said in a statement. “Streaming an HD signal requires a robust and stable network, and as the chosen VSAT provider to the world’s largest yachts, we are the ideal partner to bring the Jetstream solution to market. MTN is not just a bandwidth provider, we focus on our customers and create solutions that meet their maritime communications needs; this partnership underscores that focus.”
