Video: 5G Broadcast Trials using FeMBMS

5G was certainly a topic of discussion whilst people are hunting for use cases and trying to understand how it will actually work. 5G case studies have started to emerge, not least the Roland Garros example plus more in this 5G special from Digital TV Europe

In this talk we hear about the 5G TODAY project’s unique field trial for 5G Broadcasting. The project partners Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation (Bayerischer Rundfunk, BR), the Broadcast Technology Institute IRT, Kathrein, Rohde & Schwarz as well as Telefonica Germany who are are jointly testing broadcasting options for future 5G technology. The new large-area 5G field trial in the Bavarian alpine region is covered by two high-performance transmitters located in Ismaning and on the top of the Wendelstein mountain. Both operate with 100 kilowatts effective output power (technically: ERP). With the help of the high transmission towers and the high power of the transmitters (High-Power-High-Tower-Concept, HPHT), the large-area broadcasting of TV programs can be tested based on the new broadcast mode FeMBMS (Further evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service). The FeMBMS broadcast mode allows far-reaching and inexpensive distribution of popular content across large coverage areas with a radius of up to 60 kilometres.

Watch now to see how FeMBMS is being used and the results achieved.

Webinar: The Role of Sports in the Future of Communications

Date: Tuesday March 19th
Time: 10am EDT / 14:00 GMT

We’re hearing a lot about 5G in the broadcast industry because the technology itself offers benefits to broadcasters such as isolation from an otherwise congested network. Clearly this type of feature is attractive to sports broadcasters where they are faced with 40,000 people using the local network and, indeed, BT Sports and operator EE produced a whole match using remote production (REMI) over 5G.

From the operator perspective, there is a lot to do and many other benefits of 5G to extol. But both broadcasters and telcos are agreed in seeing sports as an important part of the adoption of 5G.

Broadcasters will adopt 5G when and where it brings real benefits to their business. It will be a complement rather than a substitute for existing technologies.’ – Darko Ratkaj, EBU
