Thuraya has confirmed that it has hit heightened streaming speeds of 512Kbps standard IP.

These new streaming speeds were recorded at a recent roadshow in Paris that was organised by Geolink Satellite Services.

Media customers from news channels, news gatherers and radio stations bore witness to live video transmission by coupling two Thuraya IP terminals which resulted in registering speeds up to 512Kbps. IP bonding is done by linking two IP terminals together with a USB cable. The ClipWay Software used for the link is a media broadcast solution by Geolink.  

Michel Notte, media development manager, Geolink Satellite Services, said: "I am thrilled about the swift new speed we have achieved combining Thuraya IP with ClipWay. After seeing a live test showing 512K, the results are smooth and sharp. This new achievement is absolutely fantastic." 

Fahad Kahoor, Thuraya's director of market development, enterprise commented: "Broadcasters attending the roadshow showed enormous interest in this new solution. The innovative and affordable Thuraya IP solution, which can be used in any climate, now allows media customers to complete filing stories even faster and more affordably."  

Thuraya IP is a compact and powerful satellite data terminal, delivering an ideal speed of 384Kbps streaming and 444Kbps standard IP.
