The webinar host, Mark Steel, Senior Director, User Terminal Development, Inmarsat, said, “The satellite industry has been working tirelessly to solve the challenge of satellite interference. With a number of initiatives and technology now in place, although the industry still has a way to go, it is vitally important that users, including broadcasters, ensure they are doing their part to remain interference-free.”
