5G and the Future of Broadcasting

The first 5G Focus Day at CABSAT 2020 showcase live debates, demonstrations and presentations about the future of broadcasting.

Each session carefully curated to give you a glimpse of how 5G speeds will make a massive impact on innovation in the media and entertainment industry.

5G networks are set to unleash another wave of innovation, new players and disruption on the existing value chain as video consumption and entertainment grows more mobile.  Beyond the promise of 5G’s transformative impact, CABSAT brings the industry leaders to be part of the conversations about the major threats to broadcast and cable TV as we know it.

Considering what 5G enables we are beginning to experience a new era of consolidation in the marketplace for services and content providers from subscription streaming services and now to new short-form entertainment services such as TikTok and Quibi continue to divert the audience’s attention as they grapple with choice of content and a range of devices.

Join us as speakers date with the about what consumers really want? How networks plan to meet bandwidth and latency demands?  What the reality of immersive content brings and its required capabilities?  How Esports has evolved at a pace unrivaled to any other sport? Who will be the first movers and adopters of 5G once standards are in place?

    5G Today project is a field trial for TV broadcasting via 5G at a kick-off event at German broadcast technology research institute IRT in Munich. The project will test how 5G broadcasting can be used to create an overlay infrastructure that can simultaneously serve millions of future 5G mobile reception devices. The aim of the project is neither to occupy the regular mobile networks as well as not to pass cost onto citizens.
