The recent software trial of the Videosoft Global solution demonstrated exceptional results as EGS Australia successfully utilised the technology over the Starlink network on one of their smaller manned 25-metre vessels, the Bhagwan K which is currently engaged in inshore mapping and survey work along the Australian coast. Commissioned by the Navy, the Videosoft solution enabled EGS Australia to achieve:

  • Real-time progress updates to clients
  • Enhanced control and communications between onshore and offshore teams
  • Reduced offshore personnel and substantial cost savings
  • Streamlined workflows leading to greater efficiency
  • Real-time monitoring of job progress
  • Commitment to environmental sustainability by reducing the carbon footprint

EGS Australia’s decision to select Videosoft Global as its provider stems from the latter’s unmatched expertise and
extensive track record in delivering ultra-low bandwidth video streaming solutions.
Videosoft Global’s hardware and network-agnostic approach ensures seamless streaming across land, sea, and airbased assets, including satellite, cellular, and wireless links. With their bespoke offerings, Videosoft Global continues to empower customers operating in remote locations across various industries.

“Incorporating Videosoft Global’s cutting-edge trial technology into our vessels has far surpassed our expectations. The trial impressed us such that we have decided to fully adopt Videosoft Global for all our upcoming USV projects. Our journey begins in November with the highly anticipated launch, where the maiden mission of our USV will play a pivotal role in our commissioned Navy operations.”

“After extensive testing, we can confidently affirm that your software stands out for its exceptional usability. Its user-friendly design and intuitive interface truly set it apart in our evaluations.

We were particularly impressed with the software’s remarkable adaptability when it came to frame rate and resolution. Even under challenging conditions, such as a minimal bandwidth of 10kbps via the Iridium satellite network, your software managed to deliver a moving image. This speaks volumes about your software’s resilience and flexibility.

We deeply appreciate your commitment to delivering a top-tier product and giving us the opportunity to conduct this testing. We eagerly anticipate potential collaborations and further advancements in your software down the road.”
