Infrastructures & Security

Production infrastructures and media cybersecurity for Radio, TV and Online media services

The scope of the Strategic Programme on Infrastructures & Security covers Radio, TV and other media services. It comprises the development and evolution of infrastructure technologies to enable live and non-live media production workflows in broadcast facilities and in remote/interfacility conditions. It also includes media cybersecurity aspects of infrastructure technologies.


  • Enable transition to IP to increase efficiency, reduce costs and provide scalability and flexibility in programme production
  • Enable transition to cloud-based production (on-premise and public) to increase efficiency, reduce costs and provide scalability and flexibility in programme production
  • Investigate and assess production connectivity (5G – in collaboration with SP Distribution – satellite, SRT, RIST, etc.)
  • Influence the standardization of new infrastructure technologies in line with the requirements of EBU Members, perform interoperability testing and associated development
  • Establish security strategies and best practices in media cybersecurity

The detailed list of deliverables of this Strategic Programme will be planned in summer 2019, with the start of the 2019-2021 workplan.

5G in Content Production

5G has the potential to improve technical and operational efficiency, increased flexibility, and reduce cost. The EBU's 5G in Content Production group brought together broadcasters and the industry to identify specific requirements in professional content production that need to be met in the 5G context.
These requirements serve as a basis for standardisation, tests and trials of 5G-based solutions, and the follow-up activities across the industry.
