5G-Virtuosa project completes initial technical IP-based studio set-up

The participants of 5G-Virtuosa, the EU-funded project exploring 5G and virtualization in broadcast production, announced today that the first technical step of the initiative has been completed at Nevion’s Service Operations Center (SOC) in Gdansk, Poland. The step involves the integration of multiple products from various vendors, with most of the work done remotely because of the COVID-19 situation.

The purpose of the EU project VIRTUOSA is to explore “Scalable Software Defined Network Architectures for Cooperative Live Media Production exploiting Virtualized Production Resources and 5G Wireless Acquisition”. In practical terms, this means demonstrating through real-life examples how 5G can be combined with virtualization concepts to enable broadcasters to produce live content (such as sports or music coverage) more efficiently and cost-effectively across locations, to meet growing consumer demand.
