Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Hi Ben, great stuff here and thanks for all of the excellent photos and graphics that help to bring it to life. I have to admit to a big sigh, though, when I realize that a system of this complexity and scope is well beyond my budget and my boat’s needs. Or is it? After all, we have dozens if not hundreds of skilled app developers focusing on iPad and related consumer devices…in the spirit of DIY, why not feature some of the best of these as a way to achieve something similar to what’s shown here but at a fraction of the cost. In addition to iPad i’m also thinking of Google Glasses and some of the augmented reality apps that are starting to appear…I really think we have many of the pieces to put together these kinds of systems in the same way the home theater and audio industry is being disrupted by low-cost iPad-driven systems that feature software displacing most of the hardware. Maybe of our Panbo regulars would agree to curate a post on how one could assemble these kinds of systems using DIY technologies. Thanks.

    Drew, I’m completely up for guest entries like the one or ones you suggest. You or anyone interested should just email me (ben at panbo.com) for guidelines and also so I can avoid multiple submissions on the same topic.

    There is a YouTube video about T-SAT that shows some features I missed:
    Unfortunately it was shot in portrait mode, but you can still catch some the amazing screen manipulation possibilities. Plus UMS is working on a pro video now.

  4. Just wanted to inform that A TSAT video is being shot as we speak and I will send the link in about a month. Also the rack for TSAT is not that big. The rack shown was including many other components used for the show. The actual rack for a basic system is only ably 2-3 feet tall.

    Thanks, James, and please don’t take my kidding too seriously. I look forward to watching a video that really shows off what T-SAT can do!

    T-SAT now has a really excellent video explanation:
    Check it out, but be careful; you might want to own a megayacht šŸ˜‰
    Also, all the wonderful T-SAT video source switching can be extended to, and used on, iPads.
