October 24, 2014

StarHub has revealed details of its trial implementation of Nokia’s Liquid Applications solution at its 4G mobile base stations within the Indoor Stadium at Singapore Sports Hub

For the trial, conducted on October 21st, four ‘live’ video feeds of the Rising Stars Finals played at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore were delivered concurrently to spectators on mobile devices, giving them different perspectives of the action played out in the court. Spectators were able to zoom in on the action by selecting any preferred camera angle at any time.

“We are excited over the potential in moving digital content to the farthest edge of our mobile network – the base stations. This localized mobile content delivery significantly reduces lags and boosts surfing quality, offering our subscribers the best mobile broadband experience,” said Mock Pak Lum, chief technology officer at StarHub.

“In collaboration with StarHub, we are proud to have showcased Asia’s first live demonstration of Video Orchestration services based on Liquid Applications at a global tennis competition in Singapore,” said John Lancaster-Lennox, head of Asia South at Nokia Networks. “In addition to boosting network performance, our Liquid Applications is capable of delivering innovative, localized and personalized mobile broadband services to subscribers. With this trial, StarHub has leveraged the unique capabilities of our solution for delivering the best-in-class service experience.”
