Open Broadcast Systems Demo 100 Millisecond Latency Over A Private 5G Network

Open Broadcast Systems demonstrate 100 millisecond latency video over a 5G private network and introduce time-based pricing at IBC. The 5G demo will be presented both on the Open Broadcast Systems booth and will be supporting the work of the 5G Remote Production…in the middle of nowhere within the IBC Accelerator Programme.

Encoders and decoders from Open Broadcast Systems are supporting high-quality broadcast contribution. Its products have built-in 5G support, making it possible for customers to contribute live video over 5G. This has already been proven in a technically demanding environment, transmitting low latency video over public 5G networks in the VW Funcup race at Le Mans earlier in the year.

The C-100 encoder and decoder supports high-quality, low-latency sport, news and channel contribution. It allows flexible deployment of contribution services in pure software or on a wide variety of high-density or portable chassis. The C-200 encoder and decoder delivers ultra-high value in pristine quality and with very low end-to-end latency.

The company has also introduced time-based pricing for its C-200 encoder and decoder products, giving users the flexibility to pay for usage on a time-used basis. This allows for encoders and decoders to be paid for as OPEX and billed only when used, such as for major sporting events, in a similar fashion to cloud resources.
