China Media Group’s Spring Festival Celebration event in 2020 was the first live broadcast using the 5G commercial network abroad.
The China Media Group shooting team uses the 5G commercial network services of the two major carriers in the UAE carried by Huawei’s 5G equipment to transmit the live broadcast signals from Dubai to Beijing in real time to celebrate the Spring Festival.
Huawei 5G Base Station，5G CPEs and 5G Mi-Fi were adopted in the commercial network. The 5G network uploads an average of 80 Mbit/s HD video stream, enabling the Dubai residents to live broadcast their New Year greetings in HD mode. Chinese audiences can receive the greetings in real time.
As a global pioneer in 5G commercial deployment, the UAE has built a large-scale 5G commercial network in 2019 to provide 5G services for the public. In addition, the continuously cooperation with vertical industries are conducted to build Dubai as a 5G city.
The 5G network features include wide coverage, large bandwidth, and low latency. It can enable collaborative live broadcasting, signal backhaul, and remote command and dispatch across multiple locations. HD video streams can be transmitted to the studio in real time by 5G instead of deploying optical fibers, microwave transmission systems, or satellite broadcast vehicle.
The 5G network simplifies the transmission of HD video signals. The mobile phone-sized 5G Mi-Fi that weighs only 180 grams can be used to complete the live broadcast tasks. The 5G live broadcast solution has been used in the media industry for multiple times, making live broadcast more convenient, flexible and cost-effective.
As the media and video industry evolves towards HD, multi-angle, and highly interactive experience, the media industry will have increasing requirements for mobile high-bandwidth transmission networks.
The media industry will become an important vertical industry that enjoys 5G. With the large-scale commercial use of 5G commercial networks and related terminals, 5G will gradually enable vertical industries to shift from demonstration projects to large-scale commercialization and promote digital transformation of industries.
