5G is more than merely a mobile standard that is faster than LTE. 5G has the potential to become a game changer not just for Industry 4.0, but also for the media industry. Innovation and development don’t come just from tech giants, but also from mid-size companies. Media Broadcast is a pioneer in this respect. Media Broadcast was one of the first companies in Germany to secure its own 5G frequency allocation for its campus in Nauen near Berlin. Since then, other companies have the ability to run on-site testing to determine the added value a 5G technology-based standalone campus network offers them. Then, right in time for UEFA EURO 2020, the opportunity arose to implement the accumulated experience in live operation: Media Broadcast set up a 5G campus network for reporting from the national football team’s EM quarters – the world’s first TV broadcast via a private 5G network.
With their short latencies, superior quality, gigabit speed and security, 5G campus networks constitute the perfect connectivity solution for industry and media production. The Media Broadcast 5G Innovation Lab demonstrates this in Nauen on the basis of three use cases.
1. Soccer on the 5G Campus
Experience sports, trade fairs and events up close. In the future, viewers will not only be watching, but will be right there, in the middle of the action. Media Broadcast has the capacity to use wireless cameras to transport high-resolution images via the 5G campus network and to immerse the viewer virtually in what is happening. The spectators become participants on the field – just like in a video game, only with real images and right beside your favorite player. Whether it’s soccer fans, trade fair visitors or for training purposes – in the future no one will have to leave the house to be there on site.
Use Case: Sports, events, trade fairs, training, healthcare, etc.
2. TV Production With the First Professional 5G Built-In Camera
Professional TV content production via 5G. Wireless broadcast camera powered by Media Broadcast and Blümer System Development with unprecedented quality in production recordings; 20 times the capacity compared to today’s wireless cameras. Premium quality was previously only possible with wired technology – we have broken through this limitation.
Use Case: Indoor and outdoor productions in HD and UHD.
3. Drone on the 5G Campus
Spectacular drone shots in a 5G environment. Faster and more precise recordings that no longer need to be cached. Live and in real time via a frequency spectrum that allows for several hundred megabits, and does that with unprecedented reliability and quality.
Use Case: Aerial images that can be integrated into TV programs in real time, allowing high-resolution images for maintenance, real-time analysis of crowds, coordination of rescue operations in the event of disasters, transportation of critical and vital equipment.
5G Campus Networks Enable Unsurpassed Performance:
- 10 Gigabit peak data rate
- 1/1000 second signal propagation time
- No interruptions
- 1,000,000 devices per km2
- Independence due to proprietary frequency spectrum and limitless, rapid mobile usability
- Security through private industrial frequency on own premises
- Joint development for individual use cases: Test 5G extensively and test-drive it
- Full-service facilities including frequency management
