NEC announced the successful transmission of live 8K video using 5G at an international tennis tournament recently held in Paris, France.

This demonstration was carried out in cooperation with France's largest television station, France Televisions, and 8K broadcasting equipment manufacturers. In this demonstration, NEC's 'VC-8900' 8K material transmission encoder, which utilizes real-time video compression technologies, was used to transmit high-definition live 8K video of the tournament to 8K video monitors and 5G smartphones and tablets at a location within the tournament's venue.
