Industry Professionals Can Catch a Glimpse of Latest Technological Leaps in Sportscasting at BroadcastAsia2014

SINGAPORE, Nov 28, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Increasing popularity and greater airplay of sports such as soccer, golf, tennis, badminton, table tennis and athletics across the region signal a growing appetite among consumers for sports-based programming. To ensure high quality and timely delivery of sports content, businesses are actively exploring broadcasting technologies such as 4K/Ultra HD (UHD), file-based management systems, multi-screen experiences, multi-platform streaming, Nextgen broadcasting, Over-The-Top (OTT) to cater to the burgeoning sports industry in the Asia Pacific region.

Sportscasting technologies and solutions to be highlighted at BroadcastAsia2014

Sportscasting will take centre-stage at BroadcastAsia, where the latest cutting edge technologies and solutions related to sportscasting, from acquisition to production to delivery will come to light. With the use of connected devices on the rise, especially in the Asian region, broadcasters and broadcasting technology companies are looking to gain bigger audience share by enhancing the viewer experience.

BroadcastAsia2014 will explore how broadcasters, pay-TV operators and online video and content service providers are working together to connect the audience through the latest technologies. Technologies such as 4K/UHD, OTT, multi-screen and multi-platform streaming enhance the viewer experience in ways not possible before. For instance, broadcasters using 4K cameras can now provide higher quality images to viewers.

With multi-platform streaming, broadcasters can work with online content service providers to enhance the multi-screen experience by allowing the audience to watch replays or pull out game statistics on their laptops or mobile devices, or interact with other fans or friends via social media platforms such as Twitter or Facebook.

Mr. Calvin Koh, Assistant Project Director from show organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services says, "With the broadcasting industry facing challenges from emerging technologies, BroadcastAsia will gather the industry to discuss these opportunities and issues, as well as showcase the infinite business potential the new technologies can bring, especially in the Asian region. Highlighting sportscasting is an example of how we continue to introduce new elements into the event and move the industry forward."

"The broadcasting industry is in an exciting state of flux at this time, especially with the addition of the second screen experience. Instead of seeing OTT and other Internet technologies as the competition, broadcasters have the opportunity to see these as enabling them to reach a higher level of play, through an intimate connection with their target audiences," comments Mr. Olivier Heurteaux, senior vice president, APAC, EVS. EVS, a leader in live outside broadcast digital video production systems, will be exhibiting at BroadcastAsia2014, as well as presenting a case study on sportscasting at the BroadcastAsia2014 International Conference.
