Hol­ly­wood helps at­tract skilled per­son­nel on the high seas

OffComm News - - NEWS -

A new agree­ment for In­marsat Mar­itime may help fill some of the down­time for crews off­shore. NT Dig­i­tal Part­ners, a joint ven­ture be­tween global con­tent agency Spafax and the world’s largest non- the­atri­cal dis­trib­u­tor Swank Mo­tion Pic­tures Inc., has en­abled In­marsat Mar­itime to bring Hol­ly­wood to the high seas via its Fleet Me­dia ser­vice. It means that a cat­a­logue of in­ter­na­tional block­busters and tele­vi­sion pro­gram­ming, along with sports and news con­tent will be avail­able to crews at sea over the In­marsat net­work for on- de­mand, off­line view­ing. Ron­ald Sp­ithout, Pres­i­dent of In­marsat Mar­itime said: “This is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary ser­vice for In­marsat and for the mar­itime sec­tor. It has been uniquely de­signed to sup­port the in­dus­try in at­tract­ing and re­tain­ing their skilled per­son­nel, as it serves as a game- chang­ing dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing fac­tor in re­cruit­ment. While life at sea has his­tor­i­cally been so­cially iso­lated, this ser­vice bridges that gap al­low­ing sea­far­ers to be more in­te­grated and con­nected with their lives ashore than ever be­fore. Fleet Me­dia brings life on land to those living at sea.”
