UK’s largest mobile operator EE trials HD and UHD/4K video streaming over its 4G network leveraging V-Nova's PERSEUS video compression solutions. The trial showcased UHD streaming at 6Mbit/s to enable high quality video streaming at a significantly reduced bitrate.
4K video over 4G with PERSEUS compression technology" https://t.co/n4uWjXDqbw— V-Nova Ltd (@VNovaVideo) September 11, 2015
EE and V-Nova tested PERSEUS video compression technology by distributing UHD/4K video over EE’s 4G network in a densely populated area of central London, near Paddington station at rush hour. The 4K content – footage from EE’s ‘Wembley Cup’ series – was streamed to a 65” 4K screen at 50 FPS via the EE ‘Osprey’ 4G WiFi hotspot.
The same content was also delivered reliably in HD format to tablets and phones at bitrates ranging from 300 Kbit/s to 1.5 Mbit/s, both on the road and in a rural location in The New Forest, in the south of England.
A continuous high-quality viewer experience was maintained throughout the 90 mile journey, handing signal over between more than 40 sites, and at the very edge of the EE 4G network.
