Ever demanding viewers want more from their mobile devices. Streaming video with dedicated bandwidth promises to be one of the major breakthroughs for 5G. Learn how this technology works and who is using it.
It was on December 13, 2011 that the Federal Communications Committee (FCC, the governmental body that oversees TV broadcasting in the U.S.), along with many irritated consumers, had had enough and decided to do something about the often times huge disparity in the audio level of commercials versus program content. This was after the U.S. congress passed the Calm Act bill on September 29, 2010.
Changing TV station dynamics, new markets, and new technologies are driving wireless remote broadcasting link solution innovations.
Performance and low latency demands of live video are helping drive leading mobile operators to deploy edge computing within their cellular and particularly emerging 5G infrastructures.
The seismic shift in paid video away from legacy broadcast towards online services has occurred first in developed nations spearheaded by the US, but recently similar trends have been gathering force in some developing markets as well.

Some call these areas with sparse populations and/or rugged terrain the last 5 percent of the digital divide.

The global lockdowns have come just too soon for 5G mobile services to help mitigate disruption to production and content creation.
