The satellite company has certified a new application for use on its network.

Inmarsat has certified the Quicklink TX solution for use over its network.

Announced as part of the Inmarsat Certified Application Partner (CAP) programme, the service allows broadcast quality video and audio to be transmitted when using Skype across Inmarsat’s Broadband Global Area Network.

The integrated hardware and software solution is aimed at broadcasters, producers, engineers and studio managers, allowing them to manage Skype when used for broadcasting purposes.

However, the certification extends the potential market reach for this type of solution to other sectors including Aid, eHealth, eLearning and Energy.

This is the latest stage in the CAP strategy to establish relationships with application and solution providers. In January, Inmarsat hosted developers in London to discuss potential uses of its network.

“Exposing our network to a wider group of technology partners creates an environment of innovation that will lead to tailored solutions for our Enterprise sectors,” said Nadeem Khan, Head of Enterprise Applications Enablement, Market Strategy and Development, Inmarsat.

He added: “Quicklink TX is a perfect example of a solution that, when combined with our network, adds significant value for our customers.”

Martin Turner, Director of Media, Enterprise Market Strategy and Development, Inmarsat, commented: “For media specifically, we want to develop solutions that support traditional newsgathering applications, while also acting as a catalyst for new ideas.

“The key driver is to deliver solutions over our seamless, global network that enable media organisations to create and distribute content in new and innovative ways.”
