Tooway connects at the Skyfall World Premier!

There can be few more eagerly awaited films in the last 10 years than EON Productions latest installment in the James Bond series, Skyfall which goes on general release later this week. Daniel Craig reprises his role as Ian Fleming’s legendary secret agent for what’s already been labelled by the critics as one of the best Bonds ever.

The World Premiere for the film was held in London’s Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday evening with most of the all-star cast in attendance as well as The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall and the film’s director Sam Mendes.

Skyfall is the 23rd official Bond film and arrives as Bond fans celebrate 50 years of the franchise. Interest in the latest escapades of Britain’s longest serving hero have reached fever pitch this week as images of the red carpet arrival of the guests at the Royal Premier were beamed all over the world.

Here at Tariam and EuropaSat (formerly ToowayDirect) we’re delighted to have played a very small part in the proceedings as our Authorised Reseller CBAS provided its purpose built Land Rover Discovery Satellite Uplink vehicle for the event delivering streaming services over the new Tooway NewsSpotter Broadcast service.

Carefully monitored by technician Rory Naylon, the Tooway satellite delivered a fault-free 7 Mbps un-contended connection to the site for the duration of the event.

CBAS Director Chris Beale said

“Tooway and Tariam provided an excellent service and we had absolutely no problems. We can see that satellite connectivity via Tooway’s Ka band service is more than capable of providing glitch free bandwidth in mission critical situations, we will be deploying this service in many situations where our Event Fibre Network is not available.”

EuropaSat’s NewsSpotter broadcast service allows customers and Resellers to book un-contended satellite connectivity for short or long durations at prices that have never been available before in the broadcasting industry. For more information or a demonstration, please contact us.
