One of our french resellers has decided to deliver next-level broadcasting on 4-Wheels to its french customers - with one of our miniCASTER®s satellite uplink car-units. As you can see on the picture, it can be installed on any car, its antenna is automatic and it gives you 6 Mbit/s up & 10 Mbit/s downlink-speed. Plus: The antenna can be folded away and stays safe on the roof top. Another pro: the command-unit in the car-trunk is easy to manage – You don’t have to be an technical expert to use it.

The miniCASTER® satellite car uplink is getting more and more attraction. Today, Red Bull was on the demo list We had given them a demo to see the fast satellite uplink providing high speed internet access for its media center, when Sandro Cortese celebrates its Championship party with more than 10.000 fans in its home town, Berkheim Germany. With only some people around, bonding has its limits soon, bandwith is more than volatile. The opposite: The miniCASTER® satellite solutions provide a guanteed upload bandwith with up to 10 Mps in Europe (+ parts of North Africa and Middle East) and the miniCASTER® encoder generates a high quality audio video signal up to HD resolution. “For appr. 40.- Euros an hour (1,5 Mps), this way of broadcasting is the most cost-effiencient solution ever”, says Martin Weber, Director Channel Sales, miniCASTER® (left)
