Welcome to the Real Real-Time

A new partnership with Broadcast Wireless Systems

A powerful collaboration to provide an end-to-end solution for world-leading low latency 4K TV production across wireless networks.


Using Broadcast Wireless Systems (BWS) Sapphire low latency encoders/decoders combined with Smart Mobile Labs  Edge Video Orchestrator (EVO) servers in the mobile edge cloud/client applications for iOS/Android/Linux devices successfully streamed live 4K video across a public 5G network at a prestigious industry event in Berlin, Germany.

In order to handle 4G/5G wireless cameras in the same was as fixed SDI cameras today, the mobile cameras need to deliver frame-synchronized signals over wireless access in a similar speed of fixed production. Broadcast Wireless Systems & Smart Mobile Labs have shown during the event how to edit several streams into a distribution signal to many broadcast centers or users in less than 200 msec end-to-end latency.

This world-first achievement was based on the super-fast encoding speed of Broadcast Wireless Systems Sapphire encoding of just 70 msec and the SML EVO switching time of just 1 msec.

This creates a new era of LIVE mobile TV production for producers.
