immersive mediaWhat is the Workshop’s Goal?

Understanding the future of the immersive Media Ecosystem and Services, and the technologies and standards required to make it happen. Understanding where the opportunities are and which gaps need to be filled to maximize the potential of immersive media services.

Why Should I Attend?

The workshop consists of an exchange of views and ideas between experts, which includes the participants as well as speakers. It contains diverse and interesting expert talks, no marketing, but a technical and insightful conversation. The workshop offers networking opportunities with peers and experts working at the cutting edge of (mobile) networking technologies and immersive services. You can also experience (and show!) the latest Immersive Media & 5G demos.

What Will I Learn ?

Providers of immersive content and services will understand how immersive media is enabled by 5G, what the most compelling features are that make 5G different from previous mobile standards - and what the timelines are. Those building technologies will better understand which requirements are essential for immersive services, and what may still be missing. Those working on standards and specs will understand where the most immediate needs are for well-defined interfaces.

Our goal is a fruitful and inspiring exchange of views and ideas between experts working at the cutting edge of immersive media distribution – be part of it, and secure your place today – Early Bird registration ends March 15! The participant and demo fees cover the cost of lunches, networking breaks and a drinks reception with demos.

See you in April at the Sony Studios!
