Tiledmedia was honoured to contribute to a pilot showcasing 8K VR live streaming with 5G Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) in the city of Guangzhou, China. The trial happened last May, using a KanDao Obsidian R camera and Pico G2 4K headset that was recently launched to display the 8K live stream.
Initiated by China Mobile Guangdong, Migu and ZTE, this successful trial highlights three key benefits of Tiledmedia’s services:
Major brands in media and telecommunications trust Tiledmedia to help bring VR live streaming to the next level. For this trial, we worked with China Mobile Guangdong, Migu, ZTE, Intel, Pico and Kandao, each of them adding their own expertise to the distribution chain.
Tiledmedia’s patented technology makes VR live streaming much more immersive, yet it also lowers the required bandwidth. During the event in Guangzhou, Tiledmedia’s software cut the bandwidth for the end-user down by more than 70%.
Moreover, even though this commercial pilot is a world first, the set-up of the whole chain, from production to end-user, went very smoothly. Based on this and numerous other VR live streaming events across the world, we were able to easily integrate ClearVR tiled streaming into the 8K VR distribution chain. This shows that Tiledmedia is the go-to partner for large-scale, high-quality VR live streaming solutions.
Glenn van der Meer, Tiledmedia’s business development manager for Greater China, said: “We greatly value the cooperation and interaction with these partners, as each of them adds their own expertise to the complete solution. We believe that with the modest bandwidth requirements, the current set of VR devices, and the dawn of the 5G era, widespread use of high-quality VR live streaming is right at our doorstep!”
