Necker Island Case Study
After Hurricane Irma devastated the British Virgin Islands in the summer of 2017, the islands needed to urgently restore vital services and begin rebuilding their lives and homes.
CTU Services were able to help with this by installing our efficient HEVC Video Compression system.
What Is A HEVC Video Compression System?
Our bespoke HEVC system enables IPTV providers to stream 1080p HD at 1.3Mbps, 720p HD at 900Kbps, standard definition at 500Kbps and low definition at 250Kbps.
A major advancement in compression technology, our HEVC system allows areas with slow broadband speeds to receive high-quality visual programming. In addition to this, with 1080p HD available at just 1.3Mbps, full HD programming over 3G and 4G is now a reality and mobile viewing is a possibility worldwide.
Why Was This Beneficial To Necker Island?
In a time of immense natural destruction, re-establishing communication and internet connectivity were vital to rebuilding essential online services.
Unlike other providers, our HEVC system succeeded in getting Necker Island and the surrounding areas reconnected to these essential online services and communications. This was a key step in helping islands devastated by Irma rebuild their homes and livelihoods.
