High-Def Streaming Solution for Yachts to be Showcased in Monaco

By Paul Joseph

Media company Jetstream and MTN Satellite Communications have collaborated to create Jetstream HD, a high-definition streaming content solution for luxury yachts.

The new technology, which allows yachts to access HD content over televisions, mobile devices, tablets, and computers while at sea and in any location across the world, will be demonstrated at next week's Monaco Yacht Show.

It is being billed as the first ever specifically designed video streaming service for yacht owners.

Derik Wagner, managing director of MTN Yacht Services Division, said: "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."

"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."

Jetstream is a media delivery and communications company based in Monaco that offers high-tech services to the yachting community.
