Join Mativision and their Partners, InterDigital, West of England Combined Authority, the University of Bristol’s Smart Internet Lab, as they host a Public Trial of the Use Case which is part of the 5G Smart Tourism Project. Mativision’s Use Case involves streaming of high-quality enhanced 360° video content to multiple users in a small area delivering synchronous immersive experiences to groups of people, exploiting the capabilities of the 5G network which was developed by the Project Partners.

High-quality VR content filmed during Bristol Pride Day and Harbour Festival in 2018 will be at the core of the immersive experience which will put groups of people in the middle of selected moments from those exciting events. The event will take place in Millennium square (near the statue of Cary Grant) from 14:30 to 16:00 and attendance is FREE subject to availability.

This Public Trial is part of the testing and assessment of the 5G network performance and is a defining step towards the final project Showcase in March (details to be announced in the future) which will aim to demonstrate the full capability of our solution.

The 5G Smart Tourism project is led by the West of England Combined Authority, working at the forefront of innovation in next generation networks like 5G, and funded by Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. It brings together 19 organisations and oversees the creation of a testbed to demonstrate 5G capability, establishing the West of England as a world-leader in the development of advanced fixed and mobile communication systems.
