ELK Audio is Going 5G

ELK Audio 5G

This year’s NAMM show ​Elk,​ the company that brought us the ​revolutionary ​Elk Audio OS, ​will host a panel on ​5G​ and how it will possibly change the music industry. After an exciting 2019 where the company not only had its technology used on stages all around the globe by British megaband ​MUSE​ in the shape of a custom made synth guitar but also released an open-source version of the award-winning Elk Audio OS now focused on another segment in their sights.

For the last year and a half, ​Elk​ has been working together with 5G network provider Ericsson to bring remote real-time music-making over ​5G​ to the market. The mutual project has been showcased with great success all over the world. Staging the world’s first ​concert in real-time over a ​5G​ in Spain last year among other things.

5G​ networks, which will provide massive increases in bandwidth and reductions in latency, are beginning to roll out in the United States and around the world. The music industry will be transformed by an entirely new generation of ​5G​ enabled internet of things (IoT) musical instruments and audio tools. Tools that will be connected to exciting new services like real-time jamming and collaboration over the internet, remote real-time recording, and online music and audio education.

At NAMM 2020, ​Elk’s Matt Ward​ will host a panel titled “How 5G will change the music industry. The panel will include ​Alan Parsons​ (Music industry veteran with a career spanning 6 decades), ​Kunal Jathal​ (Verizon Lab’s ENVRNMT project), ​Jim Odom​ (Founder and President of PreSonus) and ​Bill Goodman​ (Director – Solution Architecture at Ericsson). The panel will discuss the upcoming possibilities, obstacles and the future of the music industry.

“After working together with Ericsson and seeing the reactions from the showcases it’s clear to me that 5G will transform everything about how we create music together. It is a change that will affect every part of the process and that’s why it is so exciting to bring all these different aspects together on stage to discuss the future of our industry.” ​- ​Michele Benincaso, CEO at Elk

The panel will take place on the ​Hilton, Level 2, California Ballroom B​ on Saturday, January 18, 2020 — 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm
