The first high definition (HD) videoconferencing over satellite service available in an affordable, on demand, ‘pay as you go’ manner, HD Connect is available now for deployment to Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia — and soon to China as well as Central and South America.

HD Connect allows governments, multinational corporations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in hard to reach areas of the world to use HD videoconferencing, telepresence and visual collaboration anywhere, anytime (on land, sea or in the air), at a fraction of the price of a typical dedicated satellite data circuit. HD Connect also delivers unprecedented quality, with low jitter, low packet loss and predictable and steady latency for excellent, unparalleled videoconferencing experiences.
