Description
Professional media production will in the future require more flexibility over where and how its operations are provided, so “effective use” includes operation where there are multiple networks, which could include 5G, wired, cloud-based and home networks. The broadcast industry’s adoption of live networked media systems is still relatively immature, and there is not yet a consistent and complete approach to describing architectures and the interfaces required for interoperability.
In this paper, the Network Media Systems Template, developed by AMWA, has been used to build a set of media orchestration and control functions for a professional media production using both wireless 5G and wired (ST 2110 based) media network. In particular, the scenario under consideration comes from the EU Horizon IC-41 Project called 5G-RECORDS (https://www.5g-records.eu/) and is about a multi-camera wireless (5G-enabled) broadcast studio. The MOCG (Media Operational Control gateway) is the component that the partners in 5G-RECORDS are developing to control the setup of media resources between a 5G enabled device such as a 5G camera microphone or other devices. It sits on top of the 5G network and is used to automate and simplify the operational control of broadcast equipment deployed in different locations. In production, this is done through AMWA NMOS APIs, specifically IS-05. In the 5G network, the use of these APIs needs to be adapted through the introduction of several middleware components decoupling the remote operations from the studio and replicating/emulating NMOS control functions within a 5G environment. This paper provides a detailed description of the wireless studio use-case, the MOCG architecture & functionality and the Media Gateway responsible for anchoring the media components withing the 5G network and the production studio.
