The 2nd CGTN Global Media Summit and the 8th CCTV+ Video Media Forum(VMF2018) opened in Chongqing Municipality, southwest China, on Oct. 16.


Genichi Inabe, Deputy Director of Global IT Innovation News Department, NHK, delivered a keynote speech titled "The Prospect of Video Media in 5G Era" at the forum, in which he shared the latest research and development progress of 5G and the positive role it can play in the future.


According to Genichi Inabe, high speed, low latency and the ability to achieve large-scale synchronous connection are the three major characteristics of 5G. It will have revolutionary effects on society, including health care and autonomous driving.


At present, the Japanese government is working with private enterprises to actively seek ways to conduct 5G testing and make it meet the international standards, so as to enable the technology to be implemented at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. 


In the future, NHK hopes to use 5G to report disasters. In particular, Japan is vulnerable to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons and volcanic eruptions. Therefore, the most urgent task is to limit the impact of disasters with technologies. For example, 5G can be used to operate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) wirelessly without the need to operate them around base stations. In addition, the development of 5G will make the acquisition of big data more convenient.


Of course, not all the impacts brought by 5G are positive. Above all, the short-range signal of 5G means they tend to decay at a distance. What's more, the security problem of the 5G network is also a potential risk point. For research and development, the most important thing is to find a robust security network construction scheme, and accelerate the implementation of the solution through practice.


In a word, 5G is a brand new infrastructure, and TV stations must adapt to the new requirements in the era of 5G. This technology is likely to overturn the layout of the TV and radio industry completely, and the content production will be more intelligent as well, as 5G's ultra-low latency can further improve the efficiency of remote production. 


At last, Genichi Inabe concluded that it's of great significance for the summit and forum to attach attention to 5G, which will accelerate the arrival of the 5G era and make the future of the news industry more promising.
