Content Delivery

IP‑MobileCast – Delivers operations and entertainment content directly to your yacht with no impact on your data plan or onboard speeds.

How It Works

In a marine industry first, IP‑MobileCast utilizes multicasting technology, a technique for one-to-many communications over an IP infrastructure. The capability to receive KVH’s exciting IP‑MobileCast service is built into all TracPhone VIP systems, and can be easily added to older TracPhone V‑series products with the addition of the KVH Media Server.

IP-MobileCast multicasting technology
The old way...


Content is individually sent to each user on each yacht – each transmission requires a round trip to the cloud via a distant satellite, increasing billable data usage and burdening the satellite connection.

The innovative way...


Content is multicast once to all subscribing yachts and stored onboard for latency-free access by up to 100 simultaneous users. Does not consume yachts’s data plan nor can it harm onboard data speeds.

Watch On Any Device

You and your guests will love IP‑MobileCast. Everyone onboard has immediate, simultaneous, unlimited access to IP-MobileCast’s news, sports, movies, TV shows, and music channels – on the TVs in the yacht’s salons, staterooms, and cabins or by using their favorite personal device.Entertainment anywhere

"For me IP‑MobileCast is a miracle, and I never expected this was technically possible. I’d like to thank you and the company for making this possible for us."

Gert Reitsema, Master, Iver Exact, Vroon
