5G for media production and distribution

The next generation for mobile communication, 5G, not only will provide higher data transfer rates and lower latency: this comprehensive communications standard will change industrial sectors and markets. 5G is regarded as a key technology for the Internet of Things, automated driving, industry 4.0, smart grid and e-health. Moreover, 5G has a high potential for the media and creative sectors, potentially impacting media production workflows as well as media services. 5G is expected to play a key role in the production and distribution of broadcast services and to open up completely new ways of media consumption.

Based on a global standard, 5G allows individual communication and mass media consumption via the same network infrastructure. Powerful 5G end-user devices in the future will allow an improved hybrid access to media, a seamless transition from live to on-demand content, improved interaction with social media and user generated content as well as completely new service offerings. 5G will also support new ways of media production: production, contribution and studio equipment can be efficiently connected via mobile IP-based solutions.

The programme for our two-day event is currently under development, and is planned to contain sessions on:

  • Status of 5G development, timeline
  • Remote production, mobile contribution, interactive media: scenarios for media & entertainment, requirements and approaches
  • Scenarios for 5G network infrastructures (e.g. network slicing, campus networks)
  • Regulatory implications (e.g. network quality, roaming, end device neutrality)
  • Insights in the State of the Art: results from national and international R&D projects and initiatives (e.g. 5G Media, 5G TODAY, 5G-Xcast)
  • Feasibility studies

The event targets broadcast experts and decision makers focusing on media production / distribution, media innovation managers and researchers. The event is organized in cooperation with the 5G Media Initiative. The event language is English.
