3GPP, VRIF & AIS Workshop

April 15 - 16, 2019

3GPP, VRIF & AIS Present

The 2nd Workshop on VR Ecosystems and Standards:

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the Virtual Reality Industry Forum (VRIF), in cooperation with the Advanced Imaging Society (AIS), are announcing the second Workshop on VR Ecosystems & Standards, themed “Immersive Media meets 5G”. The workshop will take place on 15-16 April 2019 in a US West Coast location (exact place TBD), immediately after NAB and 3GPP SA4#103.

The workshop follows a highly successful December 2017 VR Ecosystems and Standards Workshop.

The second edition will focus on next-generation immersive formats and services, including Virtual, Augmented & Mixed Reality, and it will investigate 5G business opportunities brought by immersive services – as well as their requirements.
Following the proven format of the first workshop, key industry leaders from the end-to-end delivery chain – content producers, service providers, network equipment vendors and device manufacturers – will discuss their work, their ideas, their requirements and their vision for the industry.

Also, standardization leaders will provide updates on the latest technology developments in immersive technologies and the 5G new radio.

We will make this second workshop even more interactive than the first, actively engaging the audience in the discussions, and seeking to derive tangible recommendations and actions.
