The SVG Summit 2019: Inside the NBA Summer League’s 5G Smartphone Production

The NBA this past summer offered up a world first, producing a game using nothing more than Samsung Galaxy s10 5G smartphones running on two AT&T 5G cellular nodes. How did the project come together? What was involved, and did it really work as promised? At The SVG Summit (Dec. 16-17, NY Midtown Hilton, New York City), key production execs from the NBA and Turner Sports will discuss the effort, lessons learned, and what’s next.
