IBC (International Broadcasting Convention) kicks off today in the Dutch capital. Key technologies to look out for are summed up by a few acronyms which might seem a little cryptic to the non-initiated: 5G, 8K, HDR and IP. Let's try and shed some light on what they all mean.
Mike Wood leads the international experts in IEC Technical Committee 106. We asked Mike about TC 106 and their work developing standards for testing 5G and other mobile networks for safety and reliability.
5G looks set to transform the way we live and work by connecting not just people but things in the so-called Internet of Things. Telecoms expert Mike Wood, who has been involved with the roll-out of 5G in Australia, explains how IEC has been getting ready.
As 5G advances at a rapid rate and networks are deployed, testing base stations to ensure they meet the radio frequency (RF) exposure standards is an essential step for operators, regulators and the community, providing a reassurance on safety.
