Top audio-visual professionals met in Madrid on October 4-5 at BIT Experience 2017, an event organised by IFEMA, the leading Trade Fair organiser in Spain.

BIT Experience allowed its participants to find out the latest news in technology applied to the audio-visual world. In this context, the 5G-MEDIA project, represented by RTVE, had the chance to participate and illustrate its global vision.

Pere Vila, Technological Strategy and Innovation of the Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (RTVE), carried out a presentation about 5G challenges, explaining what it is expected concerning 5G networks and services in the media world.

The speed of transportation in A/V signals is one the most important benefits for broadcasters, minimizing the availability times of new contents.

Adolfo Muñoz, Director of Broadcast and Networks at RTVE, had the opportunity to explain the global vision of 5G-MEDIA project, paying attention to its importance for public media, as well as its Use Cases. Media applications are amongst the most demanding services within networks, requiring huge quantities of capacity for high audio-visual bandwidth. 5G-MEDIA  aims at innovating media-related applications by investigating how these applications and the underlying 5G network should be coupled and interwork to the benefit of both.

The Use Cases presented were:

  • Mobile contribution, remote and smart production in broadcasting and
  • UHD over Content Delivery Network.

Pere Vila and Adolfo Muñoz also participated in a round table in relation to other 5G Projects, highlighting the strong bonds between 5G-MEDIA and initiatives like 5G-CITY.
