High Tech from the Old World: Satellite Center Helps Oculus create a VR Experience at Preservation Hall
In the world of Virtual Reality, high stability upload speeds are required for the new generation of bandwidth hungry applications. If you want to stream “on location”, you need dedicated upload speeds in the 25 to 60mb range, which most venues cannot supply. Using Satellite Mobile Uplink is the answer.
For a recent presentation from Oculus, the VR headset & hardware maker, Satellite Center and LBIsat provided the necessary dedicated bandwidth. Oculus was able to upload and showcase their new and exciting equipment right from the iconic Preservation Hall in New Orleans French Quarter. The headset and its features were displayed “live” for techies and gamers to preview using a smooth stream of 60mbps x 30mbps via satellite. This is how Satellite Center can be the ideal solution to ensure smooth streaming and speed for a remote link. Whatever product, service you want to feature or event you want to share… don’t let the old world stop you from connecting to the new!
News from the shop
Satellite Center and Louisiana Information Technology (LIT) recently checked out the annual WISPAPALOOZA convention in Las Vegas.
The big draw was finding the best alternative to the incumbent internet and TV providers around the nation. WISPA stands for “Wireless Internet Service Provider Association” and LIT is one of its members now! We got to hang out with industry leaders like Ubiquiti Networks, Powercode, Cambium Networks, and Baicells Technologies to learn about their equipment and how we can bring high quality internet service to Orleans and Jefferson Parish at a competitive price. But check this out, we also came across Ubiquitis’ high speed fixed point-to-point “AirFiber” Antennas that allow INSANE speeds to be delivered to people all around the city at very reliable consistency! Satellite Center and LIT are looking forward to bringing southern Louisiana into the next generation of high-speed wireless.
