IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting 2022


17th june 2022

The 5G-RECORDS Project Consortium presented two papers at the IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting 2022 to be held on 15-17 June 2022.

The symposium was a premier forum for the presentation and exchange of technical advances in the rapidly converging areas of multimedia broadcasting, telecommunications, consumer electronics and network technologies.

Jan Dürre from (SENNHEISER) presented a paper on: “An Disaggregated 5G Testbed for Professional Live Audio Production”. The paper presents a 5G testbed based on COTS and open-source hard- and software. The 5G system was optimized for a professional live audio application targeting URLLCS KPIs. An in-depth analysis of measured latency and jitter gives insight on the maturity of 5G technology for such applications.

Adrián Rodrigo from UPV talked about his paper about:” A 5G multi-camera wireless studio for professional content production scenarios”. The paper presents an introduction to the 5G-RECORDS project, the architecture of UC2, its motivation, UC2 components, detailed description of the Media Gateway and Media Orchestration and Control Gateway and future work. Several scenarios and interesting results of the recent test sessions performed in the lab were also preset in the paper and presented at the event.

The keynote on " 5G Media Production: More than replacing some modems " was presented by Jordi Joan Giménez, Head of Technology of the 5G Media Action Group (5G-MAG). He highlighted the on-going work in 5G-MAG around Rel-16 and Rel-17 architectures and features linked to enhancing cellular bonding workflows for newsgathering and local area networks for on-site and remote production. He highlighted that although there has been a hype in projects and trials around 5G for media production it is now when the industry should start paying a close attention at the capabilities of the new 5G releases, relevant protocols, network functions, interoperability, other than just the benefit of replacing modems and SIM-cards of LTE to 5G with limited added value. There is also room for improvement on the way protocols are used not only on a transition towards IP but on a transition towards web-based media.
