Vizada has launched a new video tool: SkyFile Video powered by ClipWay(r). The software can be downloaded onto any computer and enables users operating in remote areas to edit, compress, and send video images over a mobile satellite terminal.
SkyFile Video powered by ClipWay® is built on software developed by SeaMobile Europe, a mobile satellite service provider and specialist in video solutions. It provides an all-in-one tool with improved compression rates and more user-friendly features and interface than the previous version of SkyFile Video. Customers include NGO workers providing a video evaluation of crisis situations, yachtsmen sending images of race progress for broadcast back to journalists on land and oil & gas or mining engineers reporting field data back to head office.
Once the customer has filmed images using a separate video camera and downloaded them onto their PC, they can then use the tool to edit them. The built-in compression tool enables the customer to reduce the size of the edited file, and send it over a mobile satellite terminal to a free FTP storage site hosted by Vizada, where the images can be picked up online by the recipient. The user interface has been developed to enable customers to complete these functions without a high level of technical expertise. SkyFile Video powered by ClipWay® can be used on land, at sea, or in the air with IP-based mobile satellite terminals such as Inmarsat BGAN, FleetBroadband and SwiftBroadband, Iridium OpenPort and ThurayaIP, or with ISDN services such as Inmarsat GAN and Fleet.
