FUTURA! the 2018 edition of this Think Tank focuses on key issues such as 5G, UHD-HDR, satellite, OTT, virtual and augmented reality, NGX and spectrum management.
Special attention is given to the 5GCity project. An the Forum, a dedicated Area is being setup where RAI TV Production Centre of Turin crew, with the Comune di Lucca, Giacomo Puccini Foundation and Cominicare Digitale support, will display:
– A short 4K-HDR A/V product to be used for technical distribution tests on the #5G network and a demo video of the @5GCity project.

The 5GCity project as part of the 5G PPP, the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership, a joint initiative between the European Commission and European ICT industry, aims to solve the rapid adoption of cutting edge media services; such as ultra-high definition (UHD/4K) video, and immersive media; like, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), that will demand large investments in a scalable, ubiquitous, and robust communication infrastructure and services.
