The 5G-MAG Steering Group has recently approved the membership of ESA (European Space Agency), ERT A.E. (Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation) and Media Broadcast GmbH. With the addition of these organizations, 5G-MAG currently counts 39 members.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is an international organization with 22 member states devoted to providing, and to promoting, for exclusively peaceful purposes, cooperation among European States in space research and technology and their space applications. ESA is in charge of drawing up and carrying through the European space programme. ESA brings to 5G-MAG its expertise on research on the space environment and the development of satellite-based technologies and services, with a focus on promoting European industries.
Ellinikí Radiofonía Tileórasi (ERT) is the public service media organization of Greece, currently operating several national and regional television and radio services as well as an online offer. For ERT, membership of 5G-MAG is driven by increasing interest in the application of 5G technologies in the domain of content distribution, as well as production and contribution.
Media Broadcast is Germany's largest service provider in the broadcasting and media industry, from contribution to content production and content management to broadcasting and distribution. Among other topics, Media Broadcast brings to 5G-MAG its expertise on 5G campus networks, which are particularly suitable for more flexible production and for high-quality broadcast transmissions.
