5G key technology enablers for emerging media content production services
Thekey challenge of 5G-RECORDSis to explore the possibilities that new hardware devices and technologies may bring to the 5G ecosystem.
The project targets the integration and validation of technologies as part of an overall architecture representing a subset of 5G network functions. It also supports the emergence of new markets and new market actors in Europe, especially in the context of content production use cases. The main objective is to integrate 5G components into three use cases and evaluate their performance in the context of professional content production environments.
5G-RECORDS has considered 3 use casesto embrace some of the most challenging scenarios to be showcased in the framework of professional content production: Live audio production, Multiple camera wireless studio and Live immersive content production. The successful integration of the aforementioned use cases into the 5G ecosystem demands processing audio and/or video data sources with stringent requirements for KPIs such as data rate, latency, synchronicity, availabilityand reliability.
In order to drive the adoption of 5G in professional media environmentsit is critical that technologies are compatible with existing IP workflows.
The project will develop an interface between 5G connected devices with existing broadcast production infrastructure, by means of an orchestration layer, so that there is no difference to the end user in the functionality or robustness of the devices. More info
The project brings together a wide range of experienced partners whose expertise covers both 5G and content production value chains.
In particular, the consortium brings two 5G infrastructure owners (Ericssonand Nokia), four partners bringing 5G core technologies (Cumucore, RED Technologies, Accelleranand Image Matters), one major telecom operator (Telefonica) and a developer state-of-the art software related to Media over IP networks (Bisect). The content production sector is represented by four major European public broadcasters (EBU, RAI, BBC and TV2) and two leading media technology companies (Sennheiser and Red Bee Media). The consortium also includes two universities (UPVand UPM) and one research centre (Eurecom). The project additionally counts on a strong external Advisory Board, whose role will be to monitor, evaluate and propose improvements to the work in progress and respond to the results achieved.
