5G for Museums, Galleries and Heritage - unlocking the full potential

Attend this event

Starts 5 Mar 13:00

Ends 5 Mar 18:00

This is part of a series of 5G events aimed at the Creative Industries sector.

Due to popular demand - we have had to close registration. 

Join UK5G and the National Gallery to explore the impact and importance of 5G for the Museums, Galleries and Heritage sector. You will get an opportunity to tell us what your needs are and share ideas on how 5G can enable and enhance your creative projects and infrastructure needs. The high-bandwidth low-latency technologies promised by 5G will likely radically disrupt the sector both in the way the content is delivered and received.
Thanks to 5G, immersive experiences will become more seamless and available not only to a groups of people at the same time but also to remote visitors. 5G will also impact how museums, galleries and other venues operate. 
Join us to understand the 5G and explore the wealth of opportunities it offers to the Arts and Heritage sector. We will be discussing immersive experiences, IoT, real-time remote collaborations with other establishments worldwide, and how curators can improve the preservation and storage of most precious artefacts. 
The workshop is ideally designed for staff working in digital teams at museums, galleries and heritage organisations. A detailed technology knowledge is not necessary as we will have experts on hand.
