Bluware, a global leader in petrotechnical software innovation, successfully completed multiple deployments of Bluware TELEPORT, a proprietary data compression technology enabling cost-effective transmission of seismic data via low bandwidth links such as satellite.
Bluware collaborates with leading offshore multi-client seismic data providers including Spectrum Geo Inc. and Polarcus® to reduce operational bottlenecks and expenses as seismic data is transferred from offshore vessels to onshore processing centers or cloud repositories.
Spectrum recently transmitted raw seismic data from a vessel in the South Atlantic Ocean to their data center in Houston daily via satellite.
“TELEPORT provided us with the information necessary to adjust the program during acquisition. It also reduced the waiting period for our customers who are trying to make investment decisions based on the newly acquired data,” commented Mike Mellen, Executive Vice President at Spectrum.
Polarcus successfully streamed more than 1.5 TB of raw seismic data compressed to 395 GB over satellite from vessel to cloud.
“We achieved a transmission efficiency of 95 percent over the 25 MBps allocated bandwidth with an average transmission rate of 200 GB per day. This technology allows us to stream all seismic data to the cloud within 24 to 48 hours of acquisition,” said Phil Fontana, Chief Geophysicist at Polarcus.
Bluware TELEPORT uses a proprietary Virtual Data Storage (VDS) and adaptive streaming technology, which fully preserves the signal quality and reduces storage by 25 to 30 percent. It enables streaming at variable signal rates to adapt to the workflow or the capabilities of the infrastructure.
Bluware provides seismic acquisition companies the ability to transport seismic data directly into object storage, avoiding slow and costly file systems, while enabling seismic data to be immediately accessible to high-speed processing and deep learning in the cloud or on premise.
“Polarcus’ and Spectrum’s results demonstrate that the acquisition and processing workflow can be improved to the point that a hydrophone could be seen in the future like any other IOT sensor. Also, a combination of edge, cloud analytics, and machine learning can be applied directly to the signal,” said Dan Piette, CEO of Bluware.

Oracle Data Cloud and Reddit Collaborate to Build Brand Safety Solution for Dynamic User-Generated Content
Oracle Data Cloud today announced a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Reddit to provide new brand safety controls for advertisers around a real-time feed of user-generated content (UGC). Leveraging Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence technology, the integration will provide real-time content review and classification across industry-standard brand safety categories, giving advertisers greater control over where, and around what content, their campaigns run.
“Given the tremendous volume and dynamic nature of content across the Reddit platform, Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence will offer the ideal solution to provide real-time brand safety for Reddit advertisers,” said Kurt Kratchman, Group Vice President for Product Development and International, Oracle Data Cloud. “With Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence deployed across the majority of the addressable footprint of the open web, our collaboration with Reddit serves as a natural extension into the UGC space, as we help advertisers ensure their advertising strengthens their brands.”
User-generated content has historically presented a challenge for brand safety services, as many third-party solutions do not accurately describe or categorize the scope and scale of dynamic content online. Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence integration with Reddit is a solution designed for UGC that looks not only for specific terms but also for the context in which they are used, to help advertisers place their ads in safe and brand-appropriate contexts on the Reddit platform.
“Among Reddit’s strongest propositions for advertisers is the depth and authenticity of conversations across thousands of interest-based communities,” said Jen Wong, Reddit’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our current approach to brand safety includes effective moderation at the platform, community and campaign levels, and we’re thrilled to leverage Oracle’s Contextual Intelligence to offer yet another layer of brand safety that’s 3rd-party verified and customized for Reddit’s engagement. Our work with Oracle will be the first time a UGC platform has embarked on a verified brand safety solution for custom feeds, and we’re excited to evolve the product and relationship to meet the demands of the market.”
