BroadcastAsia2004 to be held in June in Singapore

MUMBAI: One of the major television events in the region BroadcastAsia2004 takes place at a time when region prepares itself for a wave of digitisation in the industry.

To be held at the Singapore Expo from 15-18 June, the event will see broadcasters and industry experts exploring the latest electronic media initiatives. These range from media content production to management and delivery.

In addition audio, computer graphics, cable and satellite companies will showcase their latest products and services.

An official release informs that competition and rapid technological advancements has led to the proliferation of new services such as cable television and Internet enabled television, which are based on digitisation.
