It is not news that causes more sensation that China and Japan are already moving towards 6G. Where 5G has not yet fully arrived, however, news about the future connection arrives. In fact, overseas a group of researchers is studying how to send away streaming a video in 8K very high resolution.
JST CRST is the project that studies 8K video streaming using 6G technology
Is called JST Crest the project born inOsaka University trying to take advantage of 6G for sending ultra-high resolution videos. Usually when you want to send large files such as an 8K video and which have a very high data decoding speed, you need to compresserli for wireless transmission. Unfortunately this creates not only delays, but also a very significant energy consumption.
The goal of these researchers is to develop a new technology that takes advantage of the 6G connection in order to also transmit on streaming video UHD. Julian Webber, one of the researchers involved in this project, explained it very well. “In general, the higher the frequency, the greater the ability to transmit information, with waves terahertz which have a higher frequency than microwaves and millimeter waves. We focused on terahertz waves in the 300 GHz band ”.
A very clear concept that identifies a solution in 6G technology. And the first results of this experiment with the wireless transmission of 8K video signals without compressing them.
“Our result demonstrates the usefulness of terahertz waves and is expected to accelerate research and development activities for the realization of Beyond 5G and finally 6G. Such uncompressed wireless transmission technology for UHD video will improve the quality of the telemedicine he was born in telework, which are directly related to social issues, and will lead to the advancement of cyber-physical fusion using UHD video big data ”. So concludes Masayuki Fujita, one of the professors who is leading the research.
Basically strange to say, but research is already underway to better exploit 6G when 5G has not yet arrived in certain places.
