"As we rolled out our core IP-MobileCast entertainment service over the last three years, we learned that our larger fleet customers were producing their own videos, covering all sorts of practical issues," says Robert Hopkins, Jr., KVH's director of IP-MobileCast services. "But they were stumped by the same two problems that IP-MobileCast already solved: delivering the content and showing it onboard. YOURlink distributes videos to vessels at sea rapidly, and presents them in our entertainment space, where crew already browse during their off-watch hours."To utilize YOURlink, vessels must be equipped with a KVH TracPhone ® V7-IP or V11-IP satellite communications antenna system, and have an active mini-VSAT Broadband sm airtime plan; some playback options require an IP-MobileCast Media Server. There is a pay-per-video cost to send the media file, but there is no impact on the vessel's monthly data allowance, connection speed, or airtime bill. YOURlink fees are quoted based on each customer's requirements. YOURlink is planned for release during the second half of 2017.
