China Completes the First 8K Video Transmission Through the 5G Network

BEIJING, China – China for the first time, successfully conducted the transmission of ultra high definition (UHD) 8K video through the 5G network on Wednesday, Chinese media reported Friday.
The 8K video signals were transmitted from the headquarters of the China Media Group (CMG) in Beijing to the headquarters of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Shanghai.
8K is a resolution standard higher than 4K, quadrupling the total number of pixels as well as 4K with 1080p. 8K has a resolution of 7,680 by 4,320, or approximately 8,000 horizontal pixels.
The MWC viewers were amazed by the extremely smooth video flow and the extraordinary picture quality of the live broadcast in real time, which were transmitted at a speed of 320Mb/s.
The task was carried out by CMG together with telecommunications operators China Mobile, China Telecom and Huawei.
5G, next-generation mobile Internet connectivity, has a much higher data rate, which in theory is 100 times faster than 4G, with lower latency and wider coverage.
Jiang Wenbo, a senior CMG executive, said the successful test demonstrates once again that 5G networks offer reliable technology support for the UHD TV application.
“The successful completion of the task made a very good attempt to transform the entire media production process,” said Wang Xiaoyun, general manager of China Mobile’s technology department.
But the application of high-speed UHD video transmission based on 5G could be much wider.
Huang Luomeng, a senior Huawei executive, said the UHD video filmed by drones and broadcast in real time could be used in many fields of public safety and fire fighting.
“For example, for the inspection of drones in oil pipelines, the problems can only be seen clearly when the resolution of the video is so high,” he added.
