COPA EUROPE successfully completes its glass-to-glass sports use case 2nd stage trial
On the 10th of February 2023, COPA EUROPE successfully completed its glass-to-glass sports use case 2nd stage trial, achieving an important project milestone by seamlessly covering a Radio-Controlled aeroplanes show (RC-planes). Two streams of professional sports transmission were unremittingly broadcasted via two LiveU units (LU600 & LU800) into the cloud. From there on, the broadcast used a High-Efficiency Video Coding (H.265) over Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) to the Ektacom video Gateway, to the Vitec Media Asset Management (EZ-TV platform and to streaming via the Ektacom HLS Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming. The streams were viewed in real-time through the Wordline TVApp on smartphones and the FORTH VR application. The streams were also associated with a Blockchain via the COPA Europe platform by leveraging the LiveU Director application and FORTH Coordinator APIs.
