SkyPort and CVBG open new broadcast frontiers 

Continental Vista Broadcasting Group and another Houston-area company, SkyPort International Inc., are jointly pioneering a powerful, economical technology solution to enable vast new and under-served video broadcast markets.

CVBG’s proprietary, Web-based television system can now be cost-effectively extended to remote or metro-area events such as sports, entertainment and business venues via SkyPort’s ultralight, transportable broadband satellite equipment.

The new technology combination will dramatically push down the cost of video production in locations that previously required heavy satellite communications equipment used over the past 30 years by the major broadcast networks. The SkyPort-CVBG solution can now empower virtually any indoor or outdoor event to be broadcast to the world via the Internet. Since the system is mobile and can be rapidly deployed, it can also offer a highly economical solution for electronic news gathering and a host of other applications.

“The Continental Vista technology, in conjunction with SkyPort’s flexible satellite-based service, offers a video content management and distribution solution we believe will be taken up by many of our industrial, government and enterprise customers. We are also very enthusiastic about supporting the high-growth markets that Continental Vista has pioneered,” said Roger Klotz, SkyPort’s President and CEO.

“SkyPort’s robust content delivery system combined with Continental Vista’s interactive broadcasting solution is a powerful response to industries in need of real-time communications and large, secure broadcast platforms,” said Greg Demetriades, CEO of Continental Vista Broadcasting Group.  

SkyPort International is a leading provider of communication services based at Ellington Field in Houston, serving the military, enterprise and industrial markets with advanced satellite and terrestrial technologies. Visit for more information.
