Japanese telecom giant NTT DoCoMo, today said that its 12-channel MMT (MPEG Media Transport) transmissions of 8K video using fifth-generation (5G) mobile technology has been a success during a test conducted on November 1 at its Yokosuka R&D center in collaboration with Sharp Corporation, an electronics development company.
DoCoMo provided the 5G wireless system and video content while Sharp provided the ultra-high definition video transmission/display environment using 8K decoders and 8K displays. Also, the Japan Broadcasters Association supported 8K video encoding and MMT encoding.
Compressed 8K video transmission is the next generation of ultra-high definition video which requires an average data speed of 80 Mbps per channel which cannot be achieved by the current LTE mobile technology.
Ultra-high speed, large-capacity 5G communications and MMT technology can transmit stable multi-channel 8K video with a high bit rate to multiple devices.
DoCoMo also plans to test 8K video transmission via its 5G system for sports, surveillance and more for HD video transmission with MMT-enabled synchronization to many devices.
