200G links for live transfer of uncompressed video

PacketLight Networks participated in successful transmission of ultra-high-definition stereoscopic video using uncompressed full-resolution 8K video.

The international experiment of video distribution, was led by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) Integrated Testbed R&D Promotion Center. Transmission of uncompressed 8K ultra-high-definition stereoscopic video was conducted in several locations, including Sapporo, Tokyo, Osaka, and Okinawa.

Public demonstrations at each site were realized in cooperation with the regional network, where PacketLight connected two 200G links using the PL-2000M single wavelength coherent muxponder.

Remote transmission of full-resolution 8K video without compression was achieved, and 3D video reproduction was projected to an audience on a large screen successfully.
