Telstra and friends debut 5G broadcasting

By

Australia's first live 5G broadcast was demonstrated at the Telstra Vantage event in Melbourne.

Telstra demonstrated an 8K 360-degree live video broadcast from Kurrawa beach, Queensland.

The image was transmitted via a 5G tower overlooking the beach. The combination of 5G and edge processing meant the display in Melbourne was only two seconds behind reality.

But there was more to the demo than just an innersive video.

A live video call could be superimposed (picture-in-picture), and data including weather information and a social media feed was overlaid using RCS (Rich Communications Services).

The stream required a sustained throughput of 10-12Mbps, increasing to 20Mbps for sometimes prolonged periods when there was a lot of movement in the image, such as a group of people walking close to the camera.

"This is [on] our production network," emphasised Telstra network engineering executive Channa Seneviratne.

Telstra also demonstrated the way the 360-degree image could be viewed VR-style on a smartphone.

Possible uses for the technology include broadcastibg from sporting and cultural events, telstra officials suggested.

The demonstration was carried out in conjunction with broadcast and telecoms specialist Magna Systems, Summit Tech, and an outside broadcast truck from Blue Garage TV.

Summit RCS VR Calling supports mobile edge computing with 8K 360 video streams and IR.39 HD video conferencing.
