Ateme is launching a new 5G streaming solution, which will enable viewers to watch UHD content on their mobile devices while commuting or at a sports event.
The solution has already been used as part of the Eurovision Song Contest and in a major tennis tournament, as well as by the government-backed 5G Vista consortium for an in-stadium project in the UK.
According to the company, its 5G streaming solution ensures a superior experience in terms of both image quality and low latency, no matter how many people are using it.
This is enabled by integrated 5G-broadcast technology from Rohde and Schwarz, as well as using the VVC codec, the Common Media Application Format (CMAF) streaming protocol for low latency, and a reduced transport delay via 5G Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) architecture.
“With 5G, mobile video consumption is expected to thrive thanks to UHD content and new metaverse video services,” said Williams Tovar, 5G media streaming solutions director at Ateme.
“The new capabilities and flexibility brought by 5G are a fantastic opportunity to create immersive experiences and attract the highly connected younger generations (millennials and generation Z). We are thrilled to enable new mobile video services and experiences that will increase viewers’ engagement and loyalty, translating into revenue growth for both network operators and content providers.”
