5G-Xcast Videos




Video Description
1 5G-Xcast Introduction: This video is an introduction to our project and the challenges that aims to solve.
2 5G-Xcast Testbed – UNIS: This video introduces the 5GIC (5G Innovation Centre) testbed at UNIS (University of Surrey) and how it will be used within the 5G-Xcast project.
3 5G-Xcast Testbed – IRT: This video introduces the IRT (Institut für Rundfunktechnik) testbed and how it will be used within the 5G-Xcast project.
4 5G-Xcast Use Cases: This video introduces the use cases defined in the 5G-Xcast project.
5 5G-Xcast Cartoon: This cartoon video promotes the adoption of point-to-multipoint capabilities in 5G illustrating the different verticals and use cases considered in the project.
6 5G-Xcast Testbed – TUAS: This video introduces the 5GTNT (5G TestNetwork Turku) in Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS), and how it will be used within the 5G-Xcast project.
7 5G-Xcast Interviews – EuCNC 2018: Darko Ratkaj and David Gomez-Barquero shared their views about the use of 5G for the Media Vertical and the 5G-Xcast progress during the last edition of the EuCNC, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 18-21 June 2018.
8 5G-Xcast – TUAS and Fairspectrum Dynamic Spectrum Use Demonstration : This video presents dynamic spectrum use demonstration for LTE co-existence on 2.3 GHz band. The demonstration was performed by Fairspectrum and Turku University of Applied Sciences.
9 5G-Xcast – Layer 2 FEC in 5G Broadcast/Multicast Networks: This video demonstrates layer 2 FEC coupled with feedback to implement highly efficient, reliable packet delivery for broadcast/multicast applications. The benefits over the state of the art schemes are illustrated by Nomor’s system level simulator.
10 The 5G-Xcast Trial of Hybrid Broadcast Service: This video presents the 5G-Xcast showcase performed during the 2018 edition of the European Championships. Live TV contents were transmitted over LTE eMBMS including HbbTV signaling. The demonstration, which was carried out by the IRT in collaboration with the EBU, showed how audiovisual content can be produced in the state-of-the-art formats both live and on-demand and how it can be distributed to large audiences in the 5G environment.
11 5G-Xcast conducted the first live demonstration of video delivery over 5G during the Mobile World Congress’ last edition, held 25-28 February in Barcelona. The demonstration, which was jointly performed by IRT, EBU and Enensys-Expway, showed the concept of large scale media delivery in 5G powered by MooD and free-to-air distribution of enhanced media services to TVs and smartphones.
12 The content distribution framework uses multicast/broadcast as an internal optimisation for the delivery of popular content. It does this while maintaining simple unicast interfaces with content service providers and does not require any modifications to existing client applications. The proof of concept presented here shows the framework operating with a mobile network, although the approach is equally applicable to fixed networks.
13 This demonstrator shows the potential of multi-link in order to improve the reliability, QoS and performance of a broadcast service by the simultaneous and dynamic connection to multiple networks. Thanks to multi-link moving from outdoor 4G/5G connectivity to indoor WiFi can be realized with a seamless viewing experience and even broadcast network coverage can be improved using on-demand video stream repair via unicast from a different network.
14 This demonstration shows the reliable multicast delivery in 5G networks while highlighting the effects of using application layer methods, such as DASH streaming and multilink technology. It demonstrates the great potential of multicast mode of delivery – against unicast – as a network optimization in terms of resource consumption when delivering popular content, e.g. a football game final. The reduced service reliability and user experience (QoE) in pure multicast delivery mode is restored with the use of multilink technology which delivers the service as a combination of 5G multicast and 5G unicast links.
15 This demonstration focuses on using satellite multicast capabilities to deliver live channels to a 5G Edge mobile network. Thanks to multicast ABR and CMAF-CTE technologies, video distribution efficiency is improved and latency is minimized. All types of devices are addressed thanks to the transparent use of a local cache server, with synchronized video delivery across any screen.
16 We introduce an object-based weather forecasting app, Forecaster5G. The app seamlessly combines personalisation and/or bandwidth light-content, delivered over unicast, and commonly used and/or bandwidth-heavy objects, delivered over multicast. The multicast content is reliably delivered over the Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over IP Multicast (DASM) system, developed by BBC R&D.
17 This demonstrators shows how Public Warning messages with multimedia contents can be efficiently distributed to a large number of recipients. A combination of different technologies is showcased which are dynamic spectrum allocation, LTE broadcast and multilink (channel bonding). Using these technologies the large public warning messages can be quickly delivered to the recipients without requiring much load on the network. And with the help of multimedia the public warning message can also be understood by persons with disabilities (lack of hearing, eyesight) as well as illiterate people, resulting in a larger audience. An additional advantage of multimedia is that more information can be provided on the threat including more detailed instructions on how to handle helping people to mitigate the threat.
18 5G-Xcast Project Manager, Technical Manager, and Work Package Leaders summarize the project achievements as we are approaching the end of the project successfully. This video contains discussions with the Project Manager, the Technical Manager and the Work Package leaders.
19 In this video we combine some of the researched innovations to dynamically provision spectrum, using broadcast mechanism and bonding multiple resources to efficiently deliver the multimedia public warning message.
