  BGAN Streaming Services - New Pricing
 
All BGAN Terminals have access to streaming services, which are unshared channels over the BGAN satellite link to the Internet backbone. Live event broadcasters use streaming channels to avoid audio and video dropouts during a video feed. While streaming video is possible over the standard shared BGAN service, it is sometimes unpredictable, and dropouts sometimes occur.

Streaming services connect to the Internet just like standard BGAN services do, but streaming services are charged by the minute of use, unlike standard BGAN services which charge by the Megabyte transferred.


BGAN HDR Is Now Available
BGAN HDR or "High Data Rates" are available for the Explorer 710 BGAN Terminal and the Hughes 9211 BGAN Terminal with unshared channel speeds of 650 Kbps. This is the fastest speed possible for any portable satellite terminals and increases the fidelity of live video broadcasting from any location on the globe. BGAN HDR comes in several speeds shown below.

BGAN On Top Of The World
On May 20, 2013, an Explorer 700 BGAN terminal was used to stream a live video from the top of Mount Everest using a simple smartphone. The first time any live video has been shot from the top of the world.

For more information on the various Streambox solutions using BGAN, please visit their site at www.streambox.com ...The Streambox Avinar solution does not require a laptop.


How Streaming Over BGAN Works
The option to choose a streaming services for your BGAN Internet connection is located on the BGAN Launchpad or Terminal Interface from your connected computer. While the BGAN terminal is pointed at the satellite, open up the launchpad application and click on the Data tab to display the option of Connect Standard (per Megabyte charge) or any of the available Streaming (per minute charge) services.

BGAN Streaming Launchpad

BGAN Streaming Services with Ground Control
Normally, the streaming service options on the launchpad are deactivated (grayed out) by Ground Control in order to protect customers from accidentally selecting a streaming service and be charged by the minute. Streaming services can be requested to activated and available for use at any time.
