TV camera signals are multiplied and fed into EVO for play out at the event. Event visitors can select from several cameras to watch on their device, predefined video resolution, and fixed / dynamic – 360 viewpoint quality can be selected.

Multicast distribution is done via LTE Broadcast (eMBMS) or Multicast WiFi. Due to the tight real-time requirements, the video stream is delivered via RTP directly rather than using e.g. DASH protocols.

Proof of Concept

Showcase with our Partner NOKIA

At Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium, home of the Lamigo Monkeys, NOKIA used the Edge Video Orchestration (EVO) service to enable for its 4G customers at the stadium to use their mobile devices to watch multiple real-time video feeds of games and other actions. Watch this video.

SML is our exclusive partner for all real-time video solutions. They have earned our trust, as they have been a significant part of many public references to Nokia MEC, e.g. the WTA Finals in Singapore, the Shanghai Formula 1 Grand Prix or the Hajj People Finder in Saudi Arabia. With the Wembley show case, SML once again showed their ability to exceed expectations due to their technological flexibility and their solution-driven mindset.
