MWC 2019: Samsung's 5G Powers Mobile World Live TV Broadcast

Samsung demonstrates real-world use of its 5G technology.

5G will be the biggest topic at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona next week. Samsung will show off its 5G technology with a real-world application. The company will broadcast the GSMA’s Mobile World Live TV, the official media channel of MWC19 Barcelona, using its 5G network.

Throughout the broadcast, Samsung’s 5G solutions will be used, which are composed of a radio access unit (5G Radio) and a 5G router (CPE), powering the content shot by the High Definition Television Video (HDTV) camera at the booth of Mobile World Live TV located in Broadcast Village, Gran Via.

Previously, fiber-based backhaul was used for transmission from Mobile World Live TV’s booth to its production facility. This year’s transmission will be supported by Samsung’s 5G network, which is effective in overcoming the physical limitations of a fiber-based network. 5G broadcast offers ultra-low latency for the transmission of large files such as video content.

“We are thrilled to demonstrate how our latest technology can make an outstanding difference in creating new possibilities for broadcast at MWC19 Barcelona, the largest trade show in the mobile industry,” said GY Seo, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Sales & Marketing, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung is committed to meeting market demands of larger capacity and ultra-low latency attributed to the advancement of the entertainment industry.”

Samsung preempts MWC 2019 with the Galaxy S10 event scheduled for Wednesday. The Galaxy S10 launch is going to be massive. Besides a wide range of S10 models, Samsung invests big in marketing with a global billboard campaign and popup stores.
