NTT DOCOMO announced that it has agreed with SONY to conduct a joint trial involving the real-time HD video transmission via a 5G system to a 4K digital signage system fitted to the outside of the New Concept Cart, an experimental high-tech vehicle developed by SONY.
DOCOMO will evaluate 5G technologies that it plans to commercialize in 2020. The trial will be conducted at the 5G Trial Site in Tokyo, which DOCOMO built to test 5G technologies and potential commercial services that it is developing with partners.
