ST Electronics attracted a continuous stream of visitors with its Smart Cities showcase of the latest in data management and resource utilisation for public utilities - a technology concept that is making waves across the globe.


Maven - a robot from Nanyang Technological University‘s Institute for Media Innovation - excited the crowd with its ability to recreate a 3D representation of its surroundings as it travelled the exhibition floor.


Human IT Solutions in the Korea pavilion unveiled ‘Human Gate - Lite‘, an indoor gateball system using infrared motion capture of the whole body so that the player does not need to wear any equipment or use a handheld device. The new system is set to hit the market in August this year.


Huawei CMO of South Pacific Region Lim Chee Siong said, "Huawei sees the value of participating in CommunicAsia, and has committed to not only make an appearance this year, but to surprise our customers through Huawei‘s innovative end to end ICT solutions.

The special OTT feature area, one of the star attractions at BroadcastAsia2012, saw visitors stopping to catch a glimpse of the Euro2012 on various platforms including TV, laptop, tablet and mobile phone; and other content contributed by Sony Pictures.

The Cinematography/Film/Production zone drew packed audiences keen to see and learn about the latest motion picture tools and software. The Media Village‘s hourly demonstrations of post production and visual effects solutions was seen to be popular with the audience.


An interesting draw was the photography subject Sony used to demonstrate the features and versatility of its cameras - a sparkling Mini Cooper. Sony showcased its PMW-100 professional camera that is particularly popular in broadcasting stations and production houses for gathering news and producing documentaries.


Topas TV, Indonesia COO Michael Mulyanto said, "As Topas TV is a new DTH satellite and pay TV station broadcasting 65 channels, I came to BroadcastAsia2012 to shop for equipment from set-top boxes to head-end products and encoders. I visited COSHIP, Harmonic, Wellav, Grass Valley and Ideal Systems, as well as updated myself on the newest technologies. I am happy with the management of the exhibition. Everything is very well arranged".
