ORS Tests 5G Broadcast Technology at MotoGP Event in Austria

5G Broadcast technology was tested during the MotoGP event as the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, became the testing ground for its capabilities.

Live Content on Smartphones

ORS said it successfully transmitted Servus TV broadcasts and onboard camera perspectives of riders in real-time to 5G Broadcast-enabled smartphones. This allowed prototype smartphone users to experience live action at the race track like never before.

5G Broadcast Setup

The trial was powered by a setup developed by ORS' Nakolos team and technology partners Bitstem, Insys VT, and Syes. The setup featured a low-latency encoder, 5G Broadcast core, and transmitter, creating the first-ever 5G Broadcast coverage for the entire event.

Positive Results

Austrian Broadcasting Services stated that the trial demonstrated that 5G Broadcast is suited to deliver real-time event experiences to a large audience of nearly 100,000 with minimal effort. With latencies measuring under one second (glass-to-glass), the technology showed its potential to enhance event viewing.

Positive feedback came from Dorna and ServusTV, the companies supporting the trial. In addition ORS emphasised the newfound capability for temporary 5G broadcast coverage at various events, from sports to concerts.

"After the successful test at the Donauinselfest, we have now demonstrated at the MotoGP at Red Bull Ring that with 5G broadcast event technology, many people can simultaneously follow the action at the race track without any loss of quality and, for the first time, with a camera-to-stream (glass-to-glass) latency of less than one second," said ORS. "With ORS' mobile setup, temporary 5G broadcast coverage at sporting events, concerts or festivals is thus possible at any time."

The trial, conducted by ORS' Nakolos team in collaboration with Bitstem, Insys VT, and Syes, showcases the potential of 5G Broadcast technology to transform live event experiences.
