With 25 years of experience and hundreds of innovative audio/video, entertainment, IT and lighting and comfort systems installed on board superyachts around the world, this year Videoworks was once again at the Monaco Yacht Show with a number of new products.

More advanced audio/video systems and an increasingly efficient onboard network are among the key demands of today’s owners and guests.

The new products presented by Videoworks confirm its ability to continue innovating and responding proactively to this growing demand.

Staying connected even when routes lead to open waters is increasingly required by all owners. Surfing on social networks and access to video-on-demand streaming platforms are pleasures that are difficult to give up, especially on vacation.

But it’s not just entertainment: often an efficient connection can prove essential when organising a business web conference, which means not cutting a holiday short.

Thanks to the Videoworks partnership with OneWeb, it’s possible to enter a new dimension that guarantees continuous, efficient and fast connection (more than five times higher than the current systems) that’s also better value for money.

The internet connection system with LEO (Low Earth Orbit) satellites ensures a latest- generation internet browsing experience on board, both in terms of speed and latency.

Therefore, full use of IP TV and streaming services is guaranteed and why, even out in open waters, the internet connection will be very similar to the connection guaranteed by 5G technology.

This solution, presented by OneWeb, is the most recent frontier of connection possibilities. During the joint press conference at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show, the new system was explained, with more information provided on individual features.

The stand at the Monaco Yacht Show was equipped with presence detectors and energy meters that are the basis of a smart system, which allows profiling of the owner’s habits and needs.

This is particularly important for chartered vessels to ensure that the spaces are suitable to different users’ requirements.

To guarantee maximum privacy, Videoworks has decided to use sensors and Bluetooth LE technology, which allow the identification of people via smartphone, making cameras on board unnecessary.

The potential for artificial intelligence doesn’t stop there; it also achieves significant energy savings thanks to the optimisation of lights, the temperature of rooms, the air conditioning and all other onboard equipment.

This is an advantage in economic terms but, above all, in terms of autonomy, has a double objective: to improve the quality of life on board and avoid energy waste.

Among the trends encountered with increasing frequency among owners, there’s undoubtedly the desire to organise entertainment events on board.

The lights onboard have disco-like settings, with the option to create high-impact lighting patterns. With Videoworks systems, colours and patterns can also change in time with the music.

A part of the stand was therefore dedicated to a setting inspired by the disco environment, which is a novelty in the lighting field and can be adapted and used in various ways.

This is yet another example of how nothing is left to chance in the Videoworks design philosophy, which aims to always provide fully customisable solutions to match owner preferences.
