FRANKFURT, Germany—German technical services provider Media Broadcast has joined forces with LiveU to successfully test a complete TV production chain at its 5G campus.

As part of the use case, a HD camera was connected to a LU800 transmitter unit via HD-SDI, which can accommodate up to four 4K cameras.

The unit then transmitted the signal to Media Broadcast’s campus in Nauen, near Berlin, where it was received using a LiveU video server, checked and made available for further processing via HD-SDI.

“Together with LiveU, with this use case we are offering the industry a tangible example of where the journey with 5G in the news and events area could lead: easy-to-implement, flexible TV productions of the best quality and maximum security,” said Daniel Wolbers, head of 5G product development at Media Broadcast.

“It is our goal to incorporate this experience into our solution portfolio as soon as possible and thus to be able to make it available to our customers.”
