Infotainment service provider BazePort has launched BazePort Seea a new on-demand service for movies, news and information, built for the typical deep-sea merchant vessels.

While crew welfare in the form of modern IPTV entertainment is now part of the expected in some maritime segments, this is not the case in a typical tanker, bulker and container vessels. The slow adoption may have been caused by IPTV installations being considered too complicated and costly for the purpose.

BazePort’s new service has been  built to the requirements of deepsea vessels demand. It is established under the name BazePort Seea. Yes, the spelling is correct. That is Seea with two e-s.

In the development of BazePort Seea, both the possibility for information and entertainment has been in focus. The Norway-based company that already supplies services to offshore and ferry operators, believes vessel owners and operators want a more modern and quicker way to communicate than the printed email on message boards. BazePort Seea allows for cloud publishing of text, pictures and videos. This way crew is updated on safety, training and general information.

Video-on-demand entertainment on BazePort Seea is like the Netflix experience. But offline and not dependent on using the vessel bandwidth. All major Hollywood studios are represented, as well as some independent ones. BazePort seea includes thousands of hours of content to watch. Also, Baze works with renowned news providers like BBC, CNN, Euronews and TV Patrol. BazePort seea also allows for RSS news and Podcast.

Seamen working at sea for months at the time are experiencing challenging times. Covid19 is adding to the burden. For shipowners and managers, it is a challenge to create the best possible working and leisure time environment onboard their vessels. An entertainment system with an at-home user experience is a boost for the crew. The included set-top box allows the crew to socialise while watching a movie or the news together on the onboard TV set.
