The SBS Super Concert, which was created in 2011, is a highly followed and attended event that is held in a different Asian city each year. The 2019 event took place at Incheon Asiad Stadium and featured 10 internationally beloved K-Pop artists including girl group TWICE and all-male act NCT Dream. In an effort to engage with a global online audience, one of South Korea’s largest broadcaster, SBS, turned to TVU Networks to help bring its star-studded Super Concert to its YouTube channel. In addition, the broadcaster decided to transmit the live concert in 4K using 5G technology. 

SBS relied solely on the 5G supported TVU One 4K portable cellular transmitter for the live broadcast.

The two-hour event was streamed using a single TVU One 4K unit that was installed inside the venue and connected to two 5G-enabled mobile phones, with 5G bandwidth provided by Korea Telecom. This was the first time that SBS used TVU One in conjunction with 5G to cover a large live remote event. The result was an ultra high-definition live YouTube stream that captured all of the concert’s moments in first-ever 4K picture quality over 5G.
