Despite some last-minute conflicts preventing IBC365’s scheduled IP networks webinar, we were fortunate to have 5G expert Erik Vold from NRK join us. Erik provided an insightful discussion on the possibilities of integrating wireless workflows into IP productions, both in-studio and in the field. He gave insights into the process of experimentation with best-in-class workflows and designing 5G trials at NRK’s Media Operations Centre. 

The discussion covered some of the challenges of deploying 5G in a production environment and the necessity of a strong network to prove the use case. With some exciting 5G workflows planned over the summer, there is enormous potential to add flexibility to production and lower the overall footprint, which is a tempting promise.
