At this year’s conference in Dublin, one of the hot topics for discussion will be the latest advances in 5G Broadcast. On the third morning, the conference will look at the topic of 5G & DVB: The future of media delivery.

DVB World is an annual conference focused on DVB standards, services and technology. It presents insights into emerging technologies and business models, teasing out the choices that lie before the industry. With around 200 delegates from around the world representing broadcasters, service providers, manufacturers, policymakers and researchers, it’s a rare opportunity to access authoritative analysis and informed discussion.

Key milestones achieved in German 5G broadcast trials

Currently, a major European 5G field trial is being established in Germany as part of the Bavarian research project ‘5G TODAY’. The project is funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation. Under the leadership of the Institute for Broadcast Technology (IRT), project partners Kathrein and Rohde & Schwarz are investigating large-scale TV broadcasts under the scope of LTE/5G Broadcast. The project is supported by Telefónica Germany and Bayerischer Rundfunk, the Bavarian state broadcaster, which is providing two high-power high-tower (HPHT) sites near Munich for this ground-breaking field trial.

Rohde & Schwarz and Kathrein have reached two important milestones within the 5G TODAY research project. Last December, a Rohde & Schwarz transmitter successfully went into operation at Bayerischer Rundfunk’s (BR) Wendelstein transmitter station. In addition, Kathrein completed an innovative antenna for test operation at BR’s transmitter site in Ismaning near Munich.
