BBC Research and Development are exhibiting a range of new trials in public demonstrations as part of its Commonwealth Games Showcase.

These experiments bring together a wide range of industry collaborators and are helping to shape BBC R&D’s vision for the future of TV, and include a number of broadcasting milestones:

The first ever Ultra-HD broadcast of a Commonwealth Games

The first major live event to be produced and delivered entirely over the internet

The first UK trial broadcasting live coverage over 4G mobile networks

The first live virtual reality broadcast combining 360-degree video with 3D audio

The first public outing for several cutting-edge BBC R&D projects demonstrating the editorial and creative potential of a new internet-based broadcasting system

All trials and demonstrations are open to the public in the Glasgow Science Centre’s Clyde Suite from 10am to 5pm throughout the Games (24 July-3 August) and will form part of the wider BBC at the Quay festivities.
