COPA EUROPE successfully deployed the UGC APP of its glass-to-glass sports use case

On 29 April 2023, the COPA EUROPE team had the opportunity at the a Jugger tournament (7th KIELER NORDDERBY ) to successfully test the UGC App developed by Ektacom with the complete transmission chain. From there, 2 streams were transmitted via public 5G networks and in parallel a stream from Fraunhofer HHI via the 5G Berlin Tesbed. The application was successfully used on 3 different smartphones ( Google Pixel 6A, Huawei P40 Pro, Zenfone 8)and one tablet (Samsung Galaxy S8).

The transmission was done with HEVC over RTP to the Ektacom Video gateway and was forwarded from there to the Vitec Media Asset Management (EZ-TV platform) and to the Ektacom HLS Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming server. The streams were viewable in real time via the Wordline TVApp on smartphones or PC computers. The blockchain IDs for metadata was integrated in several components of the streaming chain
