Casbaa Convention 2005 to discuss creativity in a digital world

MUMBAI: The essential links of the digital value chain - innovative technologies, creative content and novel business models - will be the highlights of this year's Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (Casbaa) Convention to be held from 25 October to 28 October.

"Only with creativity will digital industry players be able to tap into the enormous business opportunities. The CASBAA Convention is an ideal platform for delegates to understand the emerging technologies and market trends as well as building and cultivating peer networks," said Casbaa chairman Casbaa Marcel Fenez.

Industry veterans, senior broadcast and studio executives, technology gurus and Asia-Pacific regulators will cast light on the digital revolution and address the hot issues within multiple market sectors and engine economies including China and India.

The first day of the Convention, 25 October Tuesday, focuses on Casbaa's inaugural "Technology Showcase" with delegates offered a unique opportunity to experience at first-hand advanced technologies such as Digital Mobile TV, Wireless Video Network TV and PVR enabled IPTV, that provide first-mover advantage to participants in the fast-paced Asia Pacific pay-TV marketplace, states an official release.

The following day, 26 October, Casbaa will unveil an industry-first study that measures the relationship between investment in pay-TV services and regulatory performance in Asia Pacific.

Pay-TV piracy remains a lingering issue among industry players, and a mid-day session on 27 October will be devoted to a discussion of the findings from the Casbaa CLSA Piracy Report 2005, the third annual study about Asia Pacific pay-TV piracy with estimates for 2005-2006, conducted by CLSA in collaboration with Casbaa and its member organisations.

On the final day of the Convention, 28 October, the Casbaa Pay-TV Advertising Forum will provide new insights into client expectations and strategies that will help pay-TV operators deliver what clients require, the release adds.

"Both industry veterans and fledgling operators will benefit from the findings and technology trends in order to capitalise on new developments in the market. The programme for the Casbaa Convention 2005 presents a sharp focus on how pay-TV operators and content owners can turn such findings and innovations into new revenue streams," said Casbaa CEO Simon Twiston Davies.

The Casbaa Convention 2005 will be held at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, the Four Seasons Hotel and the Grand Hyatt Hotel from 25-28 October, presented by InvestHK, with NOW Broadband TV as official partner and PCCW as official networking partner.
