SHENZHEN, GUANGDONG, CHINA, May 13, 2021 / — Media convergence is a combination of different types of mass media, such as Traditional Media, Print Media, Broadcast Media, New Media and the Internet, which has changed the ways of interaction and relationship between the consumers and producers of media. The most common example of media convergence is smartphone, which combines print (e-books, news apps), broadcast (streaming websites, radio, music apps), and new media (the internet) into a single interface that performs a variety of functions, ranging from calling and messaging to photography, videography, gaming, and so on.

As converged media involves the production and distribution of content, 5G technology, which features URLLC (Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication), mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications) and eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband), further speeds up information dissemination and becomes the accelerator of media convergence. Allowing high integrity and extensive connections, 5G makes high-speed and large-capacity data transmission with low latency conceivable. It also helps facilitate more diverse data sources and more targeted information dissemination. With high bandwidth and low latency, 5G smooths the way for mobile, high definition and real-time live streaming. The advent of the 5G era has profoundly affected news production and dissemination, promoting a new wave of digital revolution. In this context, the media industry should actively grasp new opportunities, fully utilize 5G technology for improving dissemination and advance media convergence.

Fibocom 5G wireless module empowers the renovation of the media ecosystem, especially in the 4K/8K HD live streaming industry, intensifying the trend of intelligent, mobile and embodied communication.
