Norway’s Norigin Media has joined the European Commission’s 5GMediaHUB, which aims to accelerate the validation of innovative 5G-empowered media and entertainment applications.
Other members of the Hub include Telenor and Brainstorm.
The consortium is funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya in Spain. The aim is to provide opportunities to third party application developers of media services to try, test and validate their media applications by using the 5GMediaHUB experimentation facility.
It plans to build two testing and validation platforms on the 5G testbeds from Telenor in Norway and CTTC in Spain.
The project is taking place over the next three years, between 2021 and 2023.
“Norigin Media is glad to be a part of this European consortium and will contribute with our video streaming technology expertise. Experiments are planned around key areas of low latency streaming, 5G Network Slicing, 8K streaming as well as AR and VR streaming distribution, among others,” said Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media. “The outcomes of this project will have a great impact on the European media industry as it helps quickly launch services over 5G to consumers”
