France Télévisions once again chooses the French Open to test the innovations of the television of the future. During this fall edition, France Televisions, in partnership with the French Tennis Federation, shares its vision of tomorrow’s uses materialized by spectacular and unprecedented experiments around “Augmented Tennis” within the RGLAB on the site of the international tournament from September 27 to October 11, 2020.
In recent years 5G has very much been the talk of the technological town in general and increasingly in the media industry. People expect it to play a significant role in live production and contribution as well as distribution to consumers. There are trials and real-world 5G deployments and testing of media use cases going on behind the scenes. In this COVID-19 era, the role of 5G in remote production becomes even more relevant to cut production costs while complying with strict social distancing guidelines.
In this IABM TV interview, Sasha Zivanovic (CEO, Nextologies) discusses their upcoming product releases, and how 5G in North America affects their business.
As you may know, the world of broadcasting is a constantly moving feast. Changes are happening all of the time. One significant change that’s always worth keeping an eye on is the ongoing deployment of 5G networks. In this article, we will explore 5G broadcasting, including how 5G networks are more efficient for mobile and the impact they will have on broadcasting specifically. And, of course, we’ll cover the widespread misconceptions. Let’s delve in, shall we?
On 19th November 2019, Ajit Pai, chairman of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), announced a public auction of the C-band spectrum (about 500 MHz of bandwidth between 3.7 to 4.2 GHz) to facilitate the development of 5G. The C-Band, a swathe of satellite spectrum that has been historically used for fixed wireless services, plays a crucial role in broadcasting and live production of content such as news reporting and sports feeds.
This session will explore how 5G offers data rate increases both upstream and downstream, as well as the ability to manage data on the 5G connections in a more sophisticated manner than ever before.
We’re exploring how to give broadcasters what they need to be able to use 5G effectively. This includes developing a roadmap of how we get to full network slicing, what sort of integrated services and wrap-around service-level agreements and support is required.
This session will explore how 5G offers data rate increases both upstream and downstream, as well as the ability to manage data on the 5G connections in a more sophisticated manner than ever before. The key role 5G plays in reducing latency; through the development of new standards, it is now possible to reduce latency within live video to a matter of seconds by using multicast ABR within the CDN to the edge and leveraging edge processing within the network.
This presentation will explain how 5G creates a new ball game in many domains. The high-speed network capability of 5G will enable UHD experiences, multi-view in HD, as well as high-quality immersive AR and VR video delivery. The low-latency aspect of 5G networks is crucial to allowing high QoE for VR and AR applications. In addition, the session will explore the edge cloud architecture (MEC) supported by 5G, enabling edge processing for use cases such as sports arenas, cloud VR and gaming.
This presentation will explain how we can deliver new interactive and immersive experiences that will change the way live sports and entertainment are consumed. Attendees will learn about the latest advancements in virtual reality (VR) where the simple 8K viewport-independent VR scheme benefits from the new generation of VR devices and smartphones supporting 8K decoding, as well as the commercial release of 5G networks.
