Expected Results

Major challenges and key technologies under study will be:

  • embedded HEVC ultra low delay encoding at 4K UHD TV resolution
  • ultra low delay wired and wireless large bandwidth IP streaming of high quality 4K video content
  • ultra low delay synchronization and seamless switching of IP large bandwidth video audio streaming
  • transcoding and content protection of HEVC 4K video streams at production side


Two major milestones of the project are:

  • to demonstrate the functionality and quality of the new approach by deploying an experimental set-up that will be able to provide the full production capabilities for all mobile sports at 4K resolution for the next Olympic games of Rio de Janeiro in 2016
  • an experimental infrastructure providing all functionality enabling “high quality” and “low bandwidth” remote studio production capabilities for both indoor and outdoor settings.
