G is becoming reality with carriers rolling it out in
limited markets. Combined with the scaling of the
Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence
(AI), 5G offers new capabilities beyond enhanced broadband,
including the promise of hyperconnectivity. With the added
demand of sending and receiving data from IoT devices, ranging from refrigerators to dog collars, people will expect
instantaneous gratification with 5G's increased transmission
speeds and amplified bandwidth.
In 2019, 5G will impact gaming, disthe Super Bowl in Minneapolis to VR

Immersive Experiences

With 5G, be thoroughly immersed in the
comfort of your home as if you were at an
events venue with new digital services
and content for connected stadiums. For
instance, live sports coverage could be
broadcast with a 360-degree view
from the athlete's perspective.

way we enjoy these things in the future."
Vicky Coif, CTO at Warner Bros. says,
"We're engaging with 5G because we recognize 5G is going to impact how fans and
consumers engage and interact with our
content. But not just that - if you look at
our production and distribution operation, it's going to change fundamentally
how those work as well. It's going to
improve how our creatives and employees
function on a day-to-day basis."

Connected Screens

Although smartphones will still be used,
5G can deliver video streams to many
different displays. Every wall, surface
and screen could become an entertainment window, letting consumers enjoy
HD video without expensive hardware.
Low-cost slim-line screens could
remotely access interactive entertainment from cloud-based servers.
In 2020, Foxconn plans to produce
5G-connected displays supporting ultrasharp 8K. Hollywood is beginning to produce movies in 8K, and Japanese public TV
company, NHK, plans to broadcast the
2020 Tokyo Olympics in 8K. Meanwhile,
personal 8K video cameras are becoming
available from manufacturers like GoPro.
5G is expected to generate new investment across the ecosystem. "By 2035,
5G will enable $12.3 trillion of global
economic output and support 22 million
jobs worldwide," says Ronan Dunne
executive vice president and group
president of Verizon Wireless. "5G
is creating the conditions to
bring pieces together and harness talent to build new
opportunities. It will herald a new Renaissance,"
adds Dunne.
