Streaming seems to be simple but fulfilling this expectation can be a real technical challenge, especially where only satellite internet is available and the bandwidth is limited
Airmont is a French technology company which develops innovative software solutions and services to enable seamless on-the-move digital experience on sea, land or air throughout the world. Their patent ‘Data Casting’ represents the cornerstone of its technology aimed at making passengers’ streaming a reality on yachts, aircrafts and trains. The service ‘STREAMING OPTIMIZATION’ based on this technology, focuses on seamlessly optimizing the video streaming experience by relying on the popular ‘cast’ icon user interface of the passengers’ streaming apps. It is particularly beneficial to drastically reduce the cost of streaming over expensive internet connections like VSAT and HTS satellite links.
So with Airmont’s Streaming Optimization service, owners and guests on the yacht can both enjoy uninterrupted quality ‘screen time’, and use much less internet bandwidth thanks to the data compression technology.
But what is the technical background of casting your content?
Applications on smartphones and tablets remain the easiest way to select streaming content. Companies have designed their applications for intuitive user interfaces tailored to a touch screen. Accessing this streaming over a TV can often be more complicated without this touch screen ability. However, there is a simple solution to get the interface of smartphones and tablets on a big screen and this is where the Airmont technology comes in to play.
