Australian telco Optus will conduct a closed trial of a real-time, interactive, multimedia video experience that delivers content to subscribers through onsite base stations via Liquid Applications.
Liquid Applications enables users to watch a sports match, concert, or major event from a variety of different angles on their device in real-time from content streamed directly from a nearby base station.
For example, if a spectator wants a different angle, or would like to switch between multiple views at a tennis, football or cricket match, using Liquid Applications they can do so directly from various cameras capturing the content around the site.
“Our trial with Nokia Networks is designed to explore the next phase of content delivery for customers,” comments SingTel Group Chief Technology Officer, Mr Tay Soo Meng. “This process reduces latency and provides ultra-responsive delivery at the edge of the network.”
