Hong Kong – Tailor Insight, the fintech market research organization, recently released a research report “WIMI Hologram AR+AI Digital Creation Will Become a Mainstream Service, As 5G Promotes the Upgrade of Film and Television Culture”. 5G base station construction is now in full swing in China. According to Xinhuanet and other media reports, as of the end of April, Beijing has deployed 56.4 thousand 5G base stations, including 8.9 thousand 5G indoor distribution systems, achieving full coverage of 5G networks in key functional areas such as the core area of the capital, CBD and Olympic sports center area. Correspondingly, most provinces and cities in China are also vigorously promoting 5G networks. Not long ago, a road test was conducted on Unicom’s 5G existing network in Beijing, testing 5G applications along the way such as HD video download, large file upload, full HD live streaming, cloud games, ultra HD video conference, HDR video drag-and-drop function at any time and AR interaction. The road test results showed 5G network has no lag and no dropout. In addition, 5G network is 5 times to 9 times faster than 4G network, and beyond that, 5G has 0% dropout rate, 8.5ms time delay and 98.75% coverage.
5G network is laying stably. How to make the application of high-speed network “fly into ordinary people’s homes” as soon as possible so that the public can use faster 5G network in more specific scenarios? This is the next important research direction of 5G construction. Driven by 5G, cloud computing, AI and other technologies, the development of Chinese film and television industry is assisted by emerging technologies. Driven by cutting-edge technologies, the transboundary integration of the film and television industry with emerging technologies, such as big data, VR and AI, has created a novel series of emerging technologies such as immersive experience (VR, AR), 8K resolution, HDR video, star replica, etc., which enables the film and television industry to continuously innovate in the implementation of presentation forms, communication media and application scenarios. The “5G+ upgrade era” comes.
5G+ film and television market has great potential
According to the data in the “2021 China 5G+ new cultural and creative sectors research report”, the direct and indirect economic output of 5G industry has already reached 484 and 120 billion yuan respectively in 2020. With the rapid popularization of 5G technology, the 5G direct economic output and indirect economic output including 5G cultural and creative sector are expected to increase by 20 thousand and 4000 billion yuan in 2022. The 5G+ film and television market has strong development potential. The development of 5G has made Internet companies not satisfied with the low-efficiency business model of digitizing IP cultural content. They combine online and offline applications with 5G technology, so as to enhance user experience and realize the positive superposition of cultural value and industrial value. In addition, they bring users both the ultimate enjoyment and content dividends through technological advantages.
Supported by 5G technology, big data, live games, VR and other technologies will be vigorously promoted to further expand the fields related to user experience, so that the experience of virtual reality will be more real. 5G technology brings innovation in the sense of perception and beauty to the cultural fields, such as games, film and television, prompting technology to add cultural ambience to the film and television industry.
5G+4K/8K revolutionizes film and television industry mode
As the 5G era comes, ultra HD video business is immensely developed. The resolution of the film and television business is now a longboard that network platforms are trying to shape. Today, network video platforms are all starting to promote 4K resources. Consequently, 4K resolution has all become the standard for network platforms. As of the end of March 2021, there are seven 4K Ultra HD channels in China, one of which is the China Media Group, and the remaining six local TV stations. The number of 4K channels and 4K video content have great room for application.
With the improvement of information technology, now 8K is also under construction. In 2020, China Central Television (CCTV) realized 5G+8K real-time coverage of the two sessions. In February this year, CCTV 8K channel was officially launched, realizing 8K live broadcast of the Spring Festival Gala. On May 7, CCTV officially launched the construction of 8K UHD TV public service platform to carry out 8K program production, channel broadcasting, signal distribution and other work. It is expected that in 2022, CCTV 8K channel will cover comprehensive program channels, such as news, documentaries, culture and education, film and entertainment, sports games and so forth.
