Live From InterBEE Japan: NHK, Rakuten Mobile Deliver 8K via 5G

Fri, 15 Nov 2019 17:06:46 -0500

NHK Technologies (NT) in collaboration with Rakuten Mobile successfully transmitted live 8K video over Rakuten Mobile’s 5G network, with a demonstration held at the InterBEE 2019 exhibition in Tokyo.The live-transmission experiment makes use of Rakuten Mobile’s 5G network in order to stream 8K video content from NT’s 8K Cloud Distribution System. The use of the public 5G wireless network frees the user from fiber-optic network constraints and greatly enhances the user’s freedom of location in content production.
 
“We believe there will be increased demand for 8K live transmission of sporting events, as can be seen from the popularity of 8K public viewings of the 2019 Rugby World Cup games,” says NT President/CEO Ichizo Ohashi. “NT strives to bring a better media experience in areas such as sports, entertainment, education, and medical applications through the use of 5G network infrastructure, in collaboration with network providers such as Rakuten Mobile.”
 
NHK Integrated Technology and NHK Media Technologies merged in April to form NHK Technologies. The merger of NHK’s two technical subsidiaries has enabled NT to provide one-stop services for the entire range of broadcast-related services. NT continues the two companies’ mission of contributing to a better media society through the development of related technologies.

Holiday Tech Spending to Reach $97.1 Billion in Revenue, Says CTA

Tue, 12 Nov 2019 17:21:01 -0500

Technology spending during the 2019 holiday season (October-December) is projected to reach $97.1 billion in revenue in the U.S. – on par with last year’s actual spending – according to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®. CTA’s 26th Annual Consumer Technology Holiday Purchase Patterns Study says 186 million U.S. adults (74%) plan to purchase a tech product as a gift this year – with streaming service subscriptions and video games emerging as popular tech gifts.
 
Seven-in-ten U.S. adults (71%) plan to purchase a content-related gift this year, which includes videogame discs (43%) and streaming or download entertainment services such as Netflix or Hulu (39%).
 
Overall, 87% of U.S. adult consumers plan to shop at brick-and-mortar stores for tech gifts this holiday season, and 80% plan to shop online – both up over last year. Of those shopping online, 65% plan to do so using a mobile device (e.g., smartphone or tablet) and 33% plan to shop using a voice-activated digital assistant.
 
“We are in the golden age of content as more people consume more content across more devices,” said Lesley Rohrbaugh, director of market research, CTA. “New video streaming services, more 4K Ultra HD content and larger screens on TVs and smartphones are putting entertainment on gift lists this holiday. Screens like laptops, smartphones and TVs will top wish lists and we’ll see a rise in emerging tech categories like smart home devices and wearables too.”
