This document describes the service and performance requirements for the operation of professional video, audio and imaging via a 5G system, including a UE, NG-RAN and 5G Core network.
The aspects addressed in this document include:
Network service requirements specific for the operation of professional video, imaging and audio for PLMN and non-public networks (NPN)
New key performance indicators (KPIs) for PLMN and NPN
KPIs for Multicast and Broadcast Services
Network Exposure Requirements
Application Specific Requirements for video, imaging and audio
The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non specific.
For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.
For the purposes of the present document, the terms and definitions given in TR 21.905 and the following apply. A term defined in the present document takes precedence over the definition of the same term, if any, in TR 21.905.
the process by which audio and video content are combined in order to produce media content. This could be for live events, media production, conferences or other professional applications.
a means of making video file or stream sizes smaller to meet various applications. Different applications have different compressions methodologies applied.
Mezzanine compression: low latency and non-complex compression applied to a video signal in order to maintain the maximum amount of information whilst reducing the stream size to allow for the available bandwidth.
Visually lossless compression: the maximum amount of compression that can be applied to a video signal before visible compression artefact appear.
Highly compressed: use of compression to distribute content over very low bandwidth connections where the content is more important than the quality of the image.
Communication service availability:
percentage value of the amount of time the end-to-end communication service is delivered according to an agreed QoS, divided by the amount of time the system is expected to deliver the end-to-end service according to the specification in a specific area.
Communication service reliability:
ability of the communication service to perform as required for a given time interval, under given conditions.
the time that [it] takes to transfer a given piece of information from a source to a destination, measured at the communication interface, from the moment it is transmitted by the source to the moment it is successfully received at the destination.
The time characteristic of an event or signal that is recurring at known, periodic time intervals.
Imaging System Latency:
The time that takes to generate an image from a source, to apply a certain amount of processing, to transfer it to a destination and then to render the resulting image on a suitable display device, as measured from the moment a specific event happens to the moment that very same event is displayed on a screen.
A specialist type of earphone usually worn by a performer in which an audio signal is fed to a wireless receive device and attached earphone.
Media clocks are used to control the flow (timing and period) of audio / video data acquisition, processing and playback. Typically, media clocks are generated locally in every mobile or stationary device with a master clock generated by an externally sourced grand master clock.
End-to-end maximum latency between the analogue input at the audio source (e.g. wireless microphone) and the analogue output at the audio sink (e.g. IEM). It includes audio application, application interfacing and the time delay introduced by the wireless transmission path.
The use of two or more cameras in an outside broadcast which can be cut between, important considerations are colour imagery, timing, framing and picture size and frequency.
The entity which offers 3GPP communication services.
a network that is intended for non-public use.
A production where content is being acquired away from the broadcast centre and controlled from the location. Generates output for broadcast which may be sent back to the broadcast centre for inclusion into a programme or for onward distribution.
A microphone that uses a wireless connection to transmit either an analogue or digital audio channel on a dedicated radio frequency or multiplex to one or more dedicated receivers which then output an audio signal suitable for onward processing.
the time that an application consuming a communication service may continue without an anticipated message.
Uncompressed video is digital video that either has never been compressed or was generated by decompressing previously compressed digital video.
Video, imaging and audio:
The means of digital capture, transmission and storage of still and moving pictures and sound for professional use.
For the purposes of the present document, the abbreviations given in TR 21.905 and the following apply. An abbreviation defined in the present document takes precedence over the definition of the same abbreviation, if any, in TR 21.905.
