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

Webinar: UHD & HDR

Today at 14:00 GMT! 8th March
This Webinar covers Ultra-High Definition (UHD) Television and related technologies such as Higher Dynamic Range (HDR), Higher Frame Rates (HFR) and Next Generation Audio (NGA) in distribution.

What is the impact of Higher Frame Rates? What about Higher Dynamic Range? The German Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT) was involved in various subjective tests for HDR and HFR, and the IRT’s Dagmar Driesnack will cover those findings in her presentation.

Both features are also included in the latest DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) receiver specification. Virginie Drugeon will present on DVB’s updated audio-visual coding specification, TS 101 154, which adds support for HDR, HFR and Next-Gen Audio.
