On April 27, 2012, China Central Television (CCTV), China’s national TV station, launched a live broadcast of the exploration of the underwater city, filmed by divers at a depth of 90 feet. By leveraging Gilat’s satellite-on-the-move (SOTM) antenna and power amplifier, CCTV was able to transmit live coverage of the exploration from a boat in high definition. The broadcast extended over a period of five days and was viewed by approximately 200 million viewers.
Many cell sites around the world, especially emerging markets in Africa and Latin America but also remoter parts of Europe, are beyond the reach of fixed broadband infrastructure. Satellite is therefore an obvious candidate, but with one big hurdle that has to be overcome, according to Doron Elinav, VP Strategic Accounts at Gilat
