ETC’s Upcoming Digital Town Square to Discuss 5G

The Entertainment Technology Center at USC will be hosting a half-day forum on 5G as the next wave of media transformation. The symposium will take place on March 28, 2019, 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM, in Downtown Los Angeles.

The advent of 5G technologies is poised to transform entertainment supply chain, workflows, Hollywood enterprise relationships, and the very nature of the content itself. The goal, through explorative talks, panels, and presentations, is to define the 5G system of technologies, its transformative prospects for content creation, distribution, and consumption, raise discussion over the technology’s allowance of new types of live and immersive content, and the potential for these transitions to disrupt traditional Hollywood business models.

Attendees will include professionals from each industry that this new technology touches joining fellow production executives, technologists and business strategists, and senior technologists from the consumer electronics industry in this exciting new conversation.

This free event is invitation-only and closed-door with no media attendance.
