IT and network technology specialist NEC Corporation has confirmed the successful transmission of live 8K video using 5G at the recent French Grand Slam tennis tournament at Roland-Garros.

This demonstration was carried out in cooperation with France’s largest television station, France Télévisions, 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.
