Fibocom 5G Modules Enable AVST Ultra-HD Real-Time Video Communication Device
In the 5G era, as the first batch of "killer" applications, 5G ultra-HD real-time video communication is the first commercial product category that comes into being at the 5G application side. As a provider of ultra-HD real-time video communication products and services, AVST, a 5G strategic partner of Fibocom, uses the device + cloud architecture to provide 5G + UHD + AI full-scenario solutions for users from government, enterprises, finance, radio and television, the judiciary, education, medical care, communications, and industrial sectors. AVST is strong in customization, with most products produced domestically, highly independent and controllable. Its video coding algorithms based on deep learning and heterogeneous multi-link fusion communication technology are at a leading position in the industry.
The current live video market is divided into two sections – existing and growth markets. The existing market is concentrated on HD video systems (video conferencing, surveillance, and course recording) that rely on wired private networks, which will grow steadily towards ultra-HD systems. The growth market involves 5G-driven ultra-HD video communication systems, which is expected to welcome explosive growth. The latter is also the main playfield of AVST, where the company has developed a number of application-specific solutions. They include broadcast and live broadcast, smart ambulance, MEC smart venue, industrial patrol, emergency command, etc.
AVST Ultra-HD Real-Time Video Communication Device Application Scenarios
5G Live Broadcast
Based on 5G networks, AVST's devices ensure the return transmission of mobile 4K live streaming signals for enterprises and individual journalists. In the coming Olympic Games, the return feed of sports field signals and mobile signals will play a key role. 4K/ 8K + 5G + AI scenario analysis and compression + multi-link transmission are expected to greatly improve the market-oriented 4K/ 8K professional live broadcast and reduce costs.
5G MEC Smart Venue, Multi-Access Edge Computing
Sports events or performances are demanding on video technologies and frame rates. However, video devices at the level of radio and television do not support customization and network access, while monitors and video conference communication equipment offer lower performance in image quality and frame rates. Moreover, in real life, audiences’ visual perspectives are usually fixed. AVST, by setting multiple camera stands in the venue and connecting to 5G video devices, can cluster the audio and video data on site with an edge computing system. When users enter the venue, with APP downloaded to a mobile phone/ tablet, they can watch, change perspective and switch in real time.
5G Smart Ambulance, First Aid Lifeline
5G will save more lives in mobile medical scenarios. Now, regular transport ambulances are being transformed into ICU-type vehicles and smart ambulances, since regular ambulances cannot offer timely treatment and preoperative preparations while transporting patients, which leads to a high mortality rate of patients. With 5G, ICU ambulances are expected to emerge, which will be equipped with multi-channel video devices for interaction with the hospital's consultation center. With emergency treatment, preoperative preparations or timely injury treatment remotely supported by doctors, the mortality rate of patients during transportation by ambulances will be lowered.
5G Emergency Command, A Channel for Disaster Relief
At present, China’s emergency command mission is undertaken by government departments in different industries. There are about 45,000 emergency management departments (including those related to government affairs, earthquake, water conservancy, transportation, etc.) across the country, and each department must be equipped with an emergency command system (disaster recovery system). In extreme weather conditions or when clouds are thick, the signals of satellite phones for emergency command are subject to disturbance. Therefore, AVST has developed equipment that can be used as a supplement to emergency communication. By setting up a 5G base station at the emergency site, the company enables connection to carrier networks and trunk networks, as well as to cameras and devices, so that the audio and video data from frontline can be transmitted to the emergency command center.
5G Industrial Patrol, Liberating High-Risk Jobs
Robots – as alternatives to human beings – performing inspections and troubleshooting in high-risk industries is a rigid demand in the 5G era. 5G's high reliability and low latency + ultra-HD video communication ensure remote closed-loop control with connected inspection + troubleshooting robots. It helps eliminate the threats to human patrols in high-risk environments.
5G Machine Vision, Building A Digital Factory of the Future
In traditional silo-like industrial production processes, each robotic arm is connected to a machine vision camera and an IPC, which is costly and inefficient. AVST’s terminal device solution uses 5G virtual private networks, as an alternative to existing industrial bus, to pool the public machines under robotic arms. With the content collected by machine vision cameras undergoing AI analysis and encoding, data is transmitted via a 5G station to an AI computing power pool, which uniformly allocates resources for analysis and processing. Then feedback signals are generated for closed-loop feedback transmission and data precipitation.
