URLLC in Media

In this talk, professional wireless audio systems used for media productions are discussed with regard to implications for potential 5G scenarios. Similar to e.g. industrial automation use-cases, live audio production requires high communication reliability as well as ultra-low signal delay. Furthermore, strict synchronization of devices is demanded in order to assure media integrity and enable all kinds of professional setups. Overall, respective media applications concern URLLC but additionally require network considerations for a successful integration.
