Yacht owners and crew using the Global Ocean Security Technologies Watch HD System from security and tracking systems supplier GOST can now watch and review video from their vessels on the GOST Watch HD website — or using the GOST Watch HD iPhone and Android apps — globally via the KVH Industries TracPhone mini-VSAT broadband satellite communications system.

The two companies have worked together to compress the video in a way that offers end users the ability to view their cameras globally without using an excessive amount of data.

“Partnering with GOST on this provides a great complement to our products and offers our mutual dealers and owners a tested and approved end-to-end solution for global video, monitoring and security,” KVH marine division national sales manager Ryan Smith said in a statement.

GOST said it is common for a boat to be outside cellular data coverage when cruising to many ports and that ability to review video off the vessel from virtually anywhere in the world with GOST Watch HD via KVH is a powerful tool to be alerted to events and have situational awareness when not on board.

“From their office or smart phone, a yacht owner can catch up with onboard fishing action 200 miles offshore, check a mooring location in the Caribbean or simply be alerted to video security violations aboard their GOST Watch HD-equipped vessel,” GOST director of research and development Brian Kane said in a statement.
