Welcome to the Real Real-Time
11/21 Sky & Vodafone bring live content to 5G SML app for Bundesliga spectators

Munich, November 11th, 2021, Sky Deutschland and Vodafone tested a 5G innovation during the Bundesliga game Leipzig vs. Dortmund delivering five additional camera angles to smartphones via the SML app.

The delay-free live Internet broadcasts on the Sky 5G Multiview App makes use of 5G frequencies.

The SML app allows Sky subscribers in the stadium to never miss any action again and watch the kind of replays they would be able to see if they were watching on television at home in a so called “Highlight” channel summarising the most important actions of the game in a 5-10 min looping video clip. Furthermore, users are able to make instant replays on any camera angle in order to watch the last few minutes of the game to replay a specific action of interest.

We marry emotions in the stadium with information from the digital world. Our 5G turbo and data processing directly on site in the stadium bring camera angles that are otherwise only available to stadium visitors on TV in the evening directly to smartphones.

Smart Mobile Labs Edge Video Orchestrator (EVO) technology ensures that multiple video streams from any source are delivered with as little as 1 millisecond latency allowing video streams to be delivered in real-time.

With the ‘Sky 5G Multiview App’, together with our partner Vodafone, we are taking a completely new approach to experiencing a Bundesliga match in the stadium. The best way for viewers to watch the live game is on Sky Sport and the best way to enjoy the live experience is, of course, in a packed stadium. With the In-Stadium App, we bring both worlds together and show what will soon be possible in our sports productions
