Production in Remote & Rugged Locations
The Live & Wild project is presenting a series of real and challenging filming scenarios to test 5G’s capacity to support the needs of the UK documentary film industry. Filming is taking place in various extreme locations and weather conditions across the UK to test 5G’s performance to its limit, including caving in the Yorkshire Dales, sea cliff climbing in North Wales, and ultra-running across Britain.
The project will monitor 5G’s resilience, adaptability, reliability and image quality as it live-streams high-end video content. It will also monitor the transfer time and performance of raw batch footage sent directly from remote film locations back to the post-production hub.
2021's Helvelyn Triathlon put the team and the tech to the ultimate test the outcome of which can be viewed below:
Meanwhile, Verizon and Disney Studios are partnering to explore the potential of 5G for filming in remote locations.
