With the development of 5G technology, the ultra-high speed and super-low latency network will bring many new media applications to industry. For example, 8K + 360 panorama + 3D live video streaming will become possible. We propose to develop a new data compact system for 5G media streaming applications, which could achieve the goal of converting 3D content into 2D format, without losing the 3D information. By developing an artificial intelligence system, we achieve the goal of hiding depth(3D) information in pictorial spaces, so as to be able to recover the 2-D media content into a 3-D media content with no perceivable inconsistency. In terms of practical usage, via compressing the data on the media recording side and recovering on the back end terminals, the transmission efficiency of 5G network could be further improved, which will bring better media streaming visual experience in live broadcast, virtual reality and online education industries.
