Innovations in 5G, Big Data, Cloud, Smart Devices, Wireless Technologies and Over-The-Top (OTT) take centre-stage as CommunicAsia2015, EnterpriseIT2015 and BroadcastAsia2015 opens its doors today (2nd June) at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
Spanning all five levels of the convention centre, the events have gathered over 1,800 exhibitors from 56 countries and regions showcasing a wide array of smart technologies to better enable connected cities, governments, enterprises and consumers. A total of 35 international pavilions are present, including new groups from China, Norway, Romania, South Korea and Vietnam.
With the rise of smart device ownership, combined with improved and affordable mobile connectivity, consumers are hungry for portable content that they can take with them on the go.
Recognising that visual content is no longer limited to one screen, BroadcastAsia2015’s new TV Everywhere Zone addresses these shifts, giving visitors access to latest OTT solutions available in the non-linear broadcasting value-chain. More than 110 exhibitors, including Accedo, Brightcove, Ericsson, Limelight Networks and Nice People At Work (NPAW), are showcasing how their solutions enable the delivery of TV everywhere.
“The OTT industry continues to evolve rapidly, as users can be selective with what content they want to consume, when they want it, and on what devices. Broadcasters, now more than ever, must have granular awareness of the performance of their service in order to keep up with growing end-user expectations and provide personalised content and service,” says NPAW’s CEO, Mr. Ferran Gutierrez.
“We are very excited to be a new exhibitor at BroadcastAsia2015. This gives us the opportunity to introduce YOUBORA, our QoS QoE and CDN switching product. We are looking forward to working alongside broadcasters in what we expect to be a strong market for our product,” he adds.
The Cinematography/Film/Production Zone and ProfessionalAudioTechonology2015 return once again, spotlighting technologies that are vital to the behind-the-scenes production process. Drones, having revolutionised aerial photography and production are also making their presence felt at BroadcastAsia2015. The show features drones from AEE and DJI, alongside Asia’s foremost aerial cinematography experts – Skyshot.
Industry heavyweights Academy(R) Award and BAFTA winning re-recording mixer, Craig Mann and co-founder and director of Widescreen Media, Kevin Lau, lead the lineup at BroadcastAsia’s new Post Production Hub. Well-known and experienced directors, colourists and visual effects experts will provide first-hand industry expertise and experience for technologies on showcase.
Satellite communication plays an essential role in broadcast, enterprise, government, maritime and oil and gas sectors. SatComm2015 sees over 170 exhibitors showcasing the latest in network agility and communication services. Notable exhibitors include AsiaSat, iDirect Asia, Intelsat, Iridium, Newtec, SES and SpeedCast.
