Today, untethering live production from physical infrastructure, moving critical workloads to the cloud, and even managing entire productions remotely is common. But one of the most significant developments is the ubiquitous deployment of 5G. After much hype and a multi-billion dollar investment, 5G is finally delivering on the promise to transform the way content is created, protected, distributed, and consumed.

This session—featuring industry expert Ben Keen hosting Verizon’s Scott Lawrence in a fireside chat— separates hyperbole from fact by focusing on outcomes from real world use cases. They highlight how leading M&E companies are embracing 5G and MEC (Mobile Edge Compute) to extend critical toolsets to remote locations, creating efficiencies via distributed workflows, increasing access to talent, enabling new ways of storytelling, and lowering operational costs. 

5G and MEC will continue to have far reaching implications for organisations across the entire M&E ecosystem. During this session, you learn how these technologies are being leveraged to develop, create and distribute content more easily, efficiently and cost effectively.
