• Internet connectivity, delivered by partner Speedcast, leveraging Eutelsat OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites combined with the Kymeta
    antenna, has been confirmed to be perfectly operational on a 70 mt superyacht in Turkey
  • OneWeb, through its network of LEO satellites, guarantees a unique fluidity of service in terms of
    speed and security
  • Videoworks provides OneWeb solutions via Speedcast, specifically for the yachting world
  • Videoworks offers its customers solutions that integrate the LEO service, hardware infrastructure and
    on-board IT distribution

With 25 years of experience and a history of hundreds of innovative audio/video, entertainment, IT, lighting & comfort systems installed on superyachts sailing around the world, Videoworks has always set itself the goal of responding to the most demanding requests of shipowners and shipping companies, implementing the latest on-board connectivity technologies for entertainment and for the professional
needs of shipowners.

Having an Internet connection as good as the connection enjoyed at home or in the office is the dream of every shipowner and all their guests. Not only does it mean enjoying shows and films on demand during leisure time as if you were in the living room of your villa, but it is also great for business, because you can manage a conference call in the middle of the ocean without having to return to port or interrupt your holiday. The advent of LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites has radically changed the on-board audio-video experience and Videoworks was immediately ready for this new scenario, with the aim of being a unique and competent partner, from the satellite to the TV remote control.

Videoworks provides LEO Connectivity in the yachting industry thanks to Speedcast,  an authorized distribution partner of OneWeb. The tests, initially carried out in the Ancona facility and, later, on board a 70-metre superyacht in Turkey, confirm the high efficiency and stability of the system. Turkey is a particularly complex area because it is not covered by
other broadband satellite systems. Videoworks managed the installation and commissioning of the OneWeb system with single Kymeta Peregrine U8 antenna. Three days of testing, with 11 streaming platforms active simultaneously, showed a constant performance of 100 megabits/sec in download and 20 megabits/sec in upload.
