Rohde & Schwarz has been an active participant in the Bavarian research project ‘5G Today’, which investigates TV broadcast transmission in the Further-evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (FeMBMS) mode in a high-power, high-tower (HPHT) 5G broadcast field trial near Munich, Germany.
The HPHT concept, according to Rohde & Schwarz, will allow broadcasters to distribute video over 5G networks with the advantages of broadcasting — including the high quality of HDTV broadcasting, low-latency live content as well as spectrum efficiency and wide coverage.
As such, the company will be highlighting the advantages of 5G technology during the 2019 NAB Show, and will demonstrate the end-to-end solution for LTE/5G broadcast.
Besides advancements in 5G technology, Rohde & Schwarz will also be showcasing its R&S Prismon monitoring and multiviewer solution.
Available on hardware-based commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems and as a hyper-visor image for virtual environments, the R&S Prismon is a software-based solution designed to support the present and future plethora of standards for content transport and media formats, both in legacy and IP-based environments.
In addition, it offers a set of protocols for over-the-top (OTT) streaming scenarios.
To meet the demands of today’s media environments, storage solutions must fulfil requirements in terms of scalability and workflow integration, including fast user access to media files, said Rohde & Schwarz. Hence, the company has developed R&S SpycerNode, which is equipped with an easy-to-use interface, a high-performance computing (HPC) file system, erasure coding mechanisms and many more functions that allow users to focus on their creative work.
