Newsgathering is time-critical. Seconds count, first to get their content back to base wins. Journalists need to file media-rich content fast, but connectivity cannot always be guaranteed.

Inmarsat’s Newsgathering Solution is a managed service that simplifies the management of mobile global connectivity for journalists and freelancers who want to report directly from the scene, rather than having to find somewhere with a reliable broadband connection.

With Inmarsat, reporters can upload stories and pictures directly into their website’s content management system from wherever the news is breaking, regardless of the local telecoms infrastructure.
