12 November 2019

With a nod to the future, MGS Entertainment Show will highlight the arrival of 5G technology in 2019 via a unique partnership with Macau telecommunications operator CTM.

Visitors to the exhibition floor will be able to enjoy a live showcasing of 5G technology and test some of its potential applications at the 5G Experience Center. The technology is already being incorporated into new product development within the gaming industry where it allows for a reduction in the dependence on fixed lines – opening a new horizon of technical possibilities.

“As we all know, the development of 5G technology will be a powerful driver in the development and promotion of many industries,” said Mr Jay Chun, Chairman of the Macau Gaming Equipment Manufacturers Association.

“This year, our collaboration with CTM enables the participation of the recreational technology industry to make use of the on-site 5G network and technology applications, and take a major step towards innovation and industrial development.

“In addition, in order to create a personal experience  for participants anticipating the charms of 5G, we and CTM have set up a special 5G  Experiential Hall displaying various 5G applications – from VR entertainment apps employing 5G speed transmission to 360-degree HD video transmission.”

MGS Entertainment Show continues to innovate as it celebrates seven years in Macau.
