Vislink Showcases 5G, Cloud-Based Wireless Solutions in Support of New 5G Broadcast Innovation

Vislink, a global technology leader in the capture, delivery and management of high quality, live video and associated data in the media & entertainment, law enforcement and defence markets, delivered private network 5G technology at a sporting event in the UK which showcased the potential of 5G in broadcast. The Vislink and (Vislink subsidiary) Mobile Viewpoint deployment heralds a further revolution in remote production workflows by bringing bi-directional IP connectivity right to the edge and delivering operational efficiencies for broadcasters by enabling virtualized production in the cloud.

Vislink’s innovations were on display at the Gallagher Premiership Rugby match between Saracens and the Northampton Saints at StoneX Stadium in London, where it proudly supported a BT-led project to highlight the potential for 5G in broadcast contributions, which centred on the connection of the matchday cameras to a standalone private 5G network. These cameras’ output then formed part of the live BT Sport coverage of the match in a UK first — never before have key matchday cameras, as part of a customer broadcast, been enabled in this way. BT Media & Broadcast and BT Sport led the project with support from Broadcast RF, the University of Strathclyde and Neutral Wireless.
Throughout the duration of the rugby match, broadcast live on BT Sport, Vislink deployed private network 5G transmitters alongside COFDM technology to demonstrate how 5G technology is evolving to deliver guaranteed quality, low latency video from wireless cameras to give immersive up-close camera shots of the sporting drama and get viewers right to the heart of the action.
