To achieve this, we offer mobile-based, modular end-to-end solutions.

All without making a difference whether the signal is sent out from an installed or mobile camera.

Typical use local video orchestration in a smart stadium

The SML App empowers the spectator to choose the perspective. Smart Mobile Labs significantly increases the User Experience by enabling real-time live videos as well as target group-specific content at sports events – creating benefits for both spectators and promoters.

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.
