4K technology shines at BroadcastAsia2013 exhibition

MUMBAI: Ultra HD (or 4K) was the buzz word at BroadcastAsis2013. The show underlined various aspects of the entire 4K ecosystem, right from the cameras to production, and from post-production to content delivery technology.

BroadcastAsia2013‘s first-time exhibitor Ericsson partnered with CommunicAsia2013‘s MEASAT to provide the encoders and receivers to facilitate the delivery of Ultra HD content from MEASAT‘s satellite feed- a perfect example convergence of technologies across information and communications technology (ICT) and broadcasting sectors.

"BroadcastAsia2013 has been a successful experience for us. We had an extensive showcase of our technology solutions from acquisition to delivery of content on multiple devices. We are pleased with the quality of visitors to our booth," informed Ericsson, Hong Kong head of TV, Asia Pacific Ward Hansford.

The trade show also witnessed unveiling of Blackmagic Production Camera 4K and its latest 6G-SDI products that allow Ultra HD products to be integrated into current SDI based television systems. The highlight was Panasonic‘s Ultra Wide Angle camera that can showcase an entire football field at once and GoPro that showcased its latest camera HERO3 that is 30 per cent smaller and 25 per cent lighter, and twice more powerful than its predecessor and includes 4K video recording capability.

Envivio‘s Muse live video encoder and transcoder for broadcast and multi-screen services was one among the exhibition highlights. Designed for 24X7 TV services over satellite, cable and managed and unmanaged IP networks, Muse compresses live SD or HD TV signals to any format and resolution while maintain an outstanding video quality.

The tradeshow also witnessed worldwide launch of Space Bridge, which offers the ability to re-purpose existing Fibre Channel or SAS storage and ‘Bridge‘ it into the world of space. Grass Valley‘s latest LDX Flex studio camera system was also one of the attractions.

"I was updated on the latest audio-visual trends and technologies, especially HD related technologies pertaining to projection and cameras, through the trade show. This exposure has left me thinking of investing in it," revealed ETG Singapore Anthony Ng.
