Inmarsat has enhanced its Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service, its on-demand satellite-based video streaming service. BGAN X-Stream guarantees streaming data rates from minimum of 384kbps to around 450kbps.

A new premium IP streaming service, X-Stream is accessible through existing hardware single, highly-compact and lightweight BGAN terminals from manufacturers Hughes and Thrane & Thrane - without the need for external antenna or any additional hardware.

In 2008, the BGAN-based digital newsgathering solution from CNN was awarded a technical Emmy. BGAN X-Stream is now available commercially.

Frank August, Business Development Director at Inmarsat, said: "We developed BGAN X-Stream in response to demands from broadcasters. This enhancement represents an increase in BGAN's streaming rate of at least 50 per cent. It means that we can meet the demand for higher guaranteed data rates, and offer a service that moves closer to true broadcast quality. The enhanced video quality of BGAN X-Stream will enable broadcasters to defer, or even avoid, the need to use SNG trucks. No matter where the story breaks, the global reach of BGAN X-Stream will deliver higher quality video to the studio."
