Keysight and MediaTek Demonstrate 8K Video Streaming Using 5G Wireless Solutions

At CES 2020, Keysight Technologies has demonstrated 8K video streaming to a smart TV using 5G wireless connectivity with MediaTek. The joint demonstration took place in MediaTek’s booth #3601 in the Tech West Pavilion in Las Vegas.

The demonstration combines Keysight’s 5G emulation solutions with Dimensity 1000, MediaTek’s first 5G mobile system-on-chip (SoC), to deliver data rates of up to 1 gigabit per second. High data rates ensure continuous 8K video streaming to an 8K smart TV without the need for a wired connection. MediaTek provides chips for wireless communications. They used Keysight’s 5G solutions to validate their Dimensity 5G chipset family.

MediaTek is using Keysight’s 5G platform to establish a 5G new radio (NR) connection using the non-standalone (NSA) mode, which relies on an LTE core and radio access network. The connection also uses dual connectivity (EN-DC) to generate an aggregated data stream created from both LTE and 5G signals.

This demonstration highlights the application diversity Keysight’s 5G solutions support, which enables a connected ecosystem to deliver products that depend on a reliable 5G connection. Keysight and MediaTek have been collaborating for more than three years, enabling it to accelerate the validation of the company’s chipsets in both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequency bands. Most of the world’s wireless device makers use Keysight's 5G test solutions to cost-effectively validate 5G NR multi-mode designs in multiple form factors across protocol, radio frequency (RF) and radio resource management (RRM) in both NSA and stand-alone (SA) modes.
