AMSTERDAM, September 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ –Haivision Systems Inc. (“Haivision”) (TSX: HAI), a leading global provider of mission-critical real-time broadcast, video networking and visual collaboration solutions, announced today Today Haivision’s collaboration with Nokia and German service provider Media Broadcast will showcase a comprehensive and flexible solution for mobile video delivery over 5G networks at SportsInnovation 2022.
The May event at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany presented a solution consisting of a Sony professional camcorder paired with a Haivision Pro460 video transmitter to capture and send ultra-low latency footage over a private Nokia 5G campus wireless network to official broadcaster OB vans for editing and mixing .
“We are delighted to partner with Haivision and Media Broadcast to provide our state-of-the-art 5G campus private wireless network, enabling a robust local area network dedicated to specific geographic areas spanning from a few hundred square meters indoors to a few miles. squares outside. Its use is restricted to people or devices affiliated with that area, which adds additional security and control, and can be further restricted with the Nokia solution.” said Ronald WarkenChannel Sales Leader Central Europe at Nokia.
For SportsInnovation 2022, Media Broadcast received approval from the German Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) to deploy a 5G network with a dedicated bandwidth of 100 MHz (3.7 GHz – 3.8 GHz) at the Mekur Spiel – Arena. For coverage of the arena, two 5G antennas have been deployed: one in the reception area of the commercial area and a 5W outdoor antenna for the field and the fans’ galleries.
During the event, the Haivision Pro460 enabled on-site teams to encode and transmit a 4K/UHD video streams — or four simultaneous HD streams — over the network, while ensuring the reliable delivery of ultra-low latency, broadcast-quality live video. Featuring six built-in 5G modems and leveraging the two-Emmy® award-winning Safe Stream Transport (SST) protocol, the Pro460 can simultaneously aggregate multiple 5G/4G/3G network connections to achieve maximum bandwidth for a seamless, high-speed stream. quality.
“Revolutionary 5G private wireless technology enables network slicing with the ability to dedicate individual slices to different services such as video transmission or radio communication,” said Ronan Poullaouec, Vice President of Engineering, Systems remote and wireless, at Haivision. “At SportsInnovation, this 5G power – combined with the efficiency and flexibility of the Haivision Pro460 – enabled both broadcasters to transmit securely at 1 Gbps, without having to worry about public network congestion.”
Housed in Media Broadcast’s 5G Blue Box – consisting of two radio cell baseband units and the state-of-the-art Nokia 5G core network – Haivision’s StreamHub 1U rack server provided reception, decoding and transmission. distribution of all video streams for demonstration. End-to-end latency as low as 200ms was achieved between the Haivision linked cellular transmitter and the broadcaster’s control room, making the mobile video streaming solution ideal for delivering professional live production. Once the signal was received in the OB van, it was distributed to the arena’s production center for editing, closed captioning and mixing via a fiber connection.
“The demonstration at SportsInnovation 2022 offers a blueprint for future television productions,” said Daniel Wolbers, Project Manager, 5G Campus Networks, at Media Broadcast. “Whether used to complement a wired camera system or as an entirely wireless production, a 5G campus private wireless network – combined with a Haivision bonded cellular system – has set new standards in performance, security, flexibility, mobility and connectivity. Best of all, the entire solution is already commercially available. We thank Haivision, Nokia and our other partners for partnering with us on this project and look forward to to continue our joint efforts in the months to come.
