FleetBroadband shows how HD's coming to the Volvo Ocean Race


It'll take more than a few waterproof cameras to keep the HD video and communications flowing to and from the boats entered in this year's Volvo Ocean Race. Sponsor Inmarsat is putting its satellite-based FleetBroadband maritime communications service in every boat to allow crews to send HD clips back to race headquarters for the estimated audience of 1.8 billion (although we're still not sure what channel will be broadcasting this in the U.S.) From its start October 4th till the finish in June next year, we'll keep an eye out for HD looks at all 10 race stops, plus all the waves and glaciers in between.
