Easter Island, Chile, 5th December 2017 – Global Teleports and QuadSAThave provided the first-ever live broadcast stream from Easter Island, using SES satellite capacity.
 
Captured and delivered by QuadSAT, using Global Teleports’ VipNet Event service, the broadcast featured the second annual Rapa Nui Rugby Sevens Tournament, which took place on 23rd-25th November. The tournament features teams from Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Tahiti and Chile.

 “The Rapa Nui Rugby Sevens proved immensely popular when it started last year, with a huge following reading updates where possible and we felt it would be even more compelling for fans to be able to watch the action live. At the same time, Easter Island’s lack of pre-existing infrastructure for connectivity meant that satellite was the only delivery option.”

Joakim Espeland

CEO, QuadSAT

Global Teleports’ VipNet Event uses SES satellite capacity to deliver connections as and when needed, rather than having to sign up for continuous service. QuadSAT streamed the event using an RTMP IP livestream protocol, using the Icelandic streaming platform, OZ.com.

“QuadSAT is always looking to push the boundaries of innovation, and delivering the first ever live stream from Easter Island is no exception. Satellite infrastructure has an infinite potential, and this is just one example of the innovative ways satellite can overcome connection challenges. Global Teleports is about overcoming connectivity obstacles, and providing the first live stream from the Island is a great achievement.”
