      [Via Satellite 04-17-2015] DataPath, a provider of remote field communications solutions to the aerospace, government, broadcast, and infrastructure markets, announced a new partnership with Vislink, a service provider in the collection, transmission, and management of high quality video and data from the field to the point of usage. This partnership will allow DataPath to offer enhanced multimodal solutions, combining the best of both satellite and cellular communications technology to the broadcast market.

      By combining DataPath’s quick connect satellite and portable vehicle mounted terminals — the CCT 90/120/200 and DA120 — with Vislink’s cellular bonding capabilities, broadcast operators will have an end-to-end solution to ensure connectivity. This new broadcast platform will give newsgatherers the ability to choose the most effective transmission path for in-field delivery back to the broadcast facility depending on their current situation or environment.

      “By offering cellular bonding solutions in addition to our portable satellite terminals, broadcasters will have a reliable connection to transmit the news in real time, whether in an urban setting or an extreme remote location,” said David Myers, president & CEO of DataPath. “Our new combined cellular and satellite platform will ensure that the remote broadcast team can get the best HD connection available, no matter where the action takes them.”
