The 5G Media Action Group (5G-MAG), a new association designed to give the media industry a voice in the 5G debate, has elected its first steering group and chair at the association’s inaugural general assembly on 16 October. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) hosted the general assembly at its headquarters in Geneva, in line with its role to foster the development and deployment of technologies of strategic importance to the media industry.

Since its announcement at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam, 5G-MAG has gained the support of more than 60 organisations from across the media value chain, including media organisations, broadcast and mobile network operators, manufacturers and regulators. A steering board of 21 representatives and a chair, Antonio Arcidiacono, EBU director of technology and innovation, have been elected. “We are proud to announce that 5G-MAG is now officially active and starting to globally represent the common voice of the media community. 5G-MAG aims to translate the standardisation work of engineers in 3GPP, DVB and the EBU into operational services that are of value in media production and distribution,” said Arcidiacono. Read more
