5G VISTA has four more cutting-edge tech partners to take the idea from concept to reality.

FREMONT, CA: 5G VISTA adds four more cutting-edge tech companies to take the project from proof-of-concept to live stadium use. The DCMS-funded experiment shows how 5G broadcast technologies can boost interactive watching experiences directly to devices at live entertainment venues.

The existing partnership now comprises ATEME, Imaginary Pictures, Ori, and 5GIC.

Alex Buchan, Project Lead and Strategic Technologist at the DTG says, “We’re really excited to have these four organizations on board for the next development phase for 5G VISTA. Each consortium member brings unique but complementary skills from across the whole mobile media delivery ecosystem, and the new members are no different. From testing the cyber security credentials of the network to creating compelling user experiences and enhancing live experiences for fans, our new partners are applying bleeding-edge tech to drive down processing power, latency, and carbon footprint.”

ATEME will supply video compression and encoding solutions to deliver live content over the 5G broadcast network. In comparison, Ori Industries will provide a Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) platform to manage ATEME's solution on Virgin Media O2's 5G network.

The 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the University of Surrey will investigate multicast/broadcast security in the 5G VISTA project. The task entails designing and validating an end-to-end security solution for group communications based on Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) and a lightweight multicast key management system.

On September 15th, 5G VISTA will host a private showcase event in London for the press and partners.
