Webinar: The Role of Sports in the Future of Communications

Date: Tuesday March 19th
Time: 10am EDT / 14:00 GMT

We’re hearing a lot about 5G in the broadcast industry because the technology itself offers benefits to broadcasters such as isolation from an otherwise congested network. Clearly this type of feature is attractive to sports broadcasters where they are faced with 40,000 people using the local network and, indeed, BT Sports and operator EE produced a whole match using remote production (REMI) over 5G.

From the operator perspective, there is a lot to do and many other benefits of 5G to extol. But both broadcasters and telcos are agreed in seeing sports as an important part of the adoption of 5G.

Broadcasters will adopt 5G when and where it brings real benefits to their business. It will be a complement rather than a substitute for existing technologies.’ – Darko Ratkaj, EBU

Video: Transforming production and broadcast with 5G

Date: 21st February 2019, 16:00 GMT plus

5G is the latest in a long line of mobile data protocols but comes with a key difference – that it can be used differently by businesses than consumers. In our case, this could mean a broadcaster can reserve bandwidth for remote productions (REMIs) as just one example.

This webinar looks at the real-world trials to make sense of the hype Vs reality bringing together experts on implementation and use of 5G from boundary-pushing BT Sport, the IRT research institute and ex-Nokia 4G & 5G strategist, Mario Nicolaou.

This webinar will explore a series of use cases for 5G with hands-on case studies, including:
– Enriching production and storytelling
– Revitalising newsgathering and live event coverage
– Blending broadcast and live data for mobile audiences in the European 5G-Xcast project

This on-demand webinar brings together Nighel Walley from Decipher, Paul Gagnon from IHS Markt, to talk all things CES with David Mercer from Strategy Analytics and Justin Lebbon from Mediatel events.

CES is used as a barometer of things to come and things that are on the way out and has a strong link into parts of the broadcast industry. At the end of the day, people change and technology changes; whatever your company, if you don’t change to suit, then you’ll be out of business.

So what’s hot and what’s off the boil this year? Find out as they cover 5G, 4K, AI, Screen tech and much more.
