Broadcast Wireless Systems (BWS) Ltd & Smart Mobile Labs (SML) have collaborated to provide an end-to-end solution for world leading low latency 4K TV production across wireless networks.
Using BWS Sapphire low latency encoders / decoders combined with SML EVO (Edge Video Orchestrator servers in the mobile edge cloud) / client applications for iOS/Android/Linux devices successfully streamed live 4K video across a public 5G network at a prestigious industry event in Berlin, Germany.
In order to handle 4G/5G wireless cameras in the same was as fixed SDI cameras today, the mobile cameras need to deliver frame-synchronized signals over wireless access in similar speed of fixed production.
BWS & SML have shown during the event how to edit several streams into a distribution signal to many broadcast centres or users in less than 200 msec end-to-end latency.
This world-first achievement was based on the super-fast encoding speed of BWS Sapphire encoding of just 70 msec and the SML EVO switching time of just 1 msec.
This creates a new era of LIVE mobile TV production for producers.
