How LTE broadcast will improve sporting events.

By on January 8, 2013

A football stadium: 100,000 spectators, 100,000 perspectives, and 100,000 different video experiences on thousands of different devices.

Verizon is working with Ericsson, the world’s leading provider of communications technology and services, to make video a winning experience during a major event.

At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Verizon will show what it’s like to be behind the wheel of broadcast TV over LTE, and will even you take a look under the hood. Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast technology and network infrastructure is powering the data networks that give customers the access to the large media streams and files necessary for viewing live video over LTE. With Ericsson’s evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS), Verizon is showing how to open the flood gates for the mobile video content necessary for this new kind of experience.

With LTE Broadcast, users will be able to access multiple camera angles, feeds and stats from live broadcast video, directly on their smartphone or other wireless device with consistent, reliable quality. Getting another view of a missed play or honing in on what’s happening at the other end of the field will be simple with LTE Broadcast technology. Users in the stadium and at home will be able to experience video in wholly new and different ways. Basically, with LTE Broadcast, you’ll never miss a thing.
