On December 3rd, 2019, 5G-Media proved the concept of a remote production with low latency between venue and production ends. The final demo took place at the Matadero Centre for contemporary Creation and Torrespaña (RTVE headquarter) via the Madrid Peñuelas CO’s TechLab.
The breakthrough of this use case was to break apart the capture of audio video on a venue from the TV production. The design and develop was steered with the idea of minimum latency in the transport of signal between them in order the loop TV Producer-Camera Operator would not perceive loss of real time sense to avoid lack of agility on real time order/decisions.
The goals were meet successfully and the first impressions of the TV producers and Camera Operators was that the experience was identical as if a Studio production or O.B. Production.
The latency reached was 10 frames wht from a perceptual point of view can be considered in the range of real time reaction.
This design can reach a theoretical 3 frames latency easily in the near future with some minor enhancements.
