SINGAPORE, Mar 14, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Continuously evolving to stay relevant to fast-moving industry needs, BroadcastAsia has taken the leap forward by setting sights beyond broadcasting to spotlight the convergence of technologies and solutions that are relevant to the fast-changing media landscape. Trade visitors at BroadcastAsia this year will get an exclusive opportunity to preview live demonstrations of ground-breaking technologies such as Cloud Broadcasting and Over the Top Technology (OTT).
BroadcastAsia will present the industry's latest
The prolific growth of portable devices has created new business opportunities and has impelled broadcasters and content producers to look for means to monetise content. As the world population progresses into a digitally connected domain, broadcasters are driven to add value by customising content to specific audience interests, and communicating with viewers across various platforms. Broadcasting is no longer about just transmitting, but also about interaction between content providers and users.
A recent research report from Cisco predicts that by 2016, there will be 10 billion smartphones and tablets on earth; some 1.4 mobile gadget per person. Consumers are looking for new ways to access media. The amount of data traffic generated by 60 percent of mobile users - three billion people worldwide - is expected to be phenomenal at one gigabyte per month.
Cloud-based technologies and services are increasingly being adopted to deploy the appropriate hardware and software solutions as broadcasters are being pushed to support ever-increasing distribution platforms. Consumers are already viewing content on a variety of devices like PCs, tablets, smartphones or netbooks, spearheading a multiscreen usage trend that will soon become a mainstream activity. Consequently, multiscreen connectivity is fast becoming the norm, with new portable devices enabling flexible personalisation of multimedia content. Users seek to contribute their own inputs and want to be able to engage with their content on a device that provides the best experience at any particular time.
This new feature area at BroadcastAsia2012 will zoom in on Over the Top Technology (OTT), a must-see for industry professionals as OTT delivery promulgate in the coming years; with cloud broadcasting setting new standards in video content delivery network (video CDN). Solutions for Digital Radio, DVB-T2, File-based and Digital Media Asset Management will also be showcased.
Confirmed exhibitors Axon, EVS, Seachange and Magna will offer their insight into the future of broadcast and media delivery to BroadcastAsia visitors, by presenting a special showcase on how technology providers are preparing both broadcasters and media producers to deliver content to a new generation of consumers, who have now become active players. Visitors can also expect to see their advanced multi-screen technology, and multi-package, live-media delivery solution. The equipment will be supplied by Axon, EVS, Magna Systems and Seachange; and Sony Pictures Television Networks Asia will provide the content for this showcase.
Companies who will be part of this limelight at BroadcastAsia2012 include ATG, Blackmagic, Evertz, Envivio, Fortis, Grass Valley, Harmonic, Harris, Miranda, Nevio, Plisch, Quantel, Salzbrenner Stagetec, Sennheiser, Snell, Tektronix and Thomson Video Networks to name a few.
