The only company to combine remote communications speacialists with movie industry experts

Datasat Media has been formed specifically to provide wireless communication services to the film production industry both on location and at the studio. We are able to create a new range of innovative services to deliver cost and productivity benefits to production teams throughout the world.

  • Beyond BroadbandBack to top

    Wireless broadband services to remote locations worldwide
    Datasat media understands the many facets that go beyond just supplying communications and broadband to a location. You require the most effective way to transmit and view video, and have the confidence that your people and equipment are safe and secure when on location. You need a communications infrastructure that can be changed, expanded or moved with the minimum of fuss, cost or time lost from your schedule. Most of all, you need a single network that lets you do all this cost-effectively – wherever you are. Unlike many of the communications providers that offer services to the film and TV industries today and are limited to offering basic Internet and broadband packages. That's where we come in with our comprehensive system to satisfy all of your location communications and security requirements.

  • In-depth industry knowledgeBack to top

    Datasat Media is a specialist communications provider. But, how many other communication providers do you know that include award-winning film makers and  broadcast designers on their management team? We bring to our communication solutions an industry insight that few other communication suppliers can claim. For example, Datasat is a member of the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) as we know how important for film and TV companies to protect their intellectual property – starting with how data and video is transferred during the production process.  All this is backed by what Real Business described as an 'engineering-led business developing communications for remote conditions...with an outstanding technically gifted team'.



  • Remote Communications specialistsBack to top

    Datasat Media has another interesting little quirk. We are a new company with over a quarter of a century of experience behind us. In that time, we've helped build the infrastructure for satellite TV stations, we've helped introduced real time trading to the city of London, and we've delivered high performance, high security networking to UK embassies across the globe. Datasat has an enviable reputation as one of the world's leading remote communications specialists. Initially a premium provider of satellite communications services, we now tailor communications to your exact requirement based on the optimum mix of satellite, wireless, cellular and terrestrial technologies.

  • Privately owned NOC and earth stationBack to top

    Located in the UK and core to our services is our totally owned Network Operations Centre (NOC) from where our qualified engineers utilise our exclusively developed Network Management and Monitoring Systems to deliver effective network management services for all our customer networks. As we are one of the few independent communications providers with its own earth station, means we have much greater control over the bandwidth and performance available for you from satellite connectivity.  Our earth station means that we can guarantee the highest level of security for your network connectivity when you require it.



  • Powerful and robust wireless solutionsBack to top

    Powerful and robust wireless networks meet military standards for environmental performance
    We are one of the few providers that can deliver four radios with a single wireless device. This provides the flexibility to create multi-frequency, multi-network systems within the same ruggedised, climate-tested chassis. With aggregate speeds up to 1200Mbps, indoor and outdoor wireless networks can be created with enhanced throughput and coverage using fewer wireless systems. High performance, high availability networks with less investment and management overhead.
