Live 8K video transmits using 5G with television station in France

NEC Corporation has announced the successful transmission of live 8K video using 5G at an international tennis tournament recently held in Paris, France. This demonstration was carried out in cooperation with France's largest television station, France Televisions, and 8K broadcasting equipment manufacturers.

In this demonstration, NEC's ‘VC-8900’ 8K material transmission encoder, which utilises real-time video compression technologies, was used to transmit high-definition live 8K video of the tournament to 8K video monitors and 5G smartphones and tablets at a location within the tournament's venue.

"Building on the success of this initiative, NEC will further promote the realisation and expansion of next-generation broadcasting services using high-definition video in 2020 and beyond," said Takeshi Inoue, General Manager, Broadcast and Media Division, NEC Corporation.
