Keeping Ahead of Industry Development

With the growing business adoption of Internet and multimedia devices, and the increasing number of media content now made available on various digital platforms, media organisations have taken action and have since benefited by migrating towards a diversified multi-platform approach to producing and distributing content.

Broadcasters have exposure to a multitude of opportunities today, a result of increasing expectations from end-users for the management of big data and premium services such as IP-based video-on-demand, live streaming and HD broadcast ? all of which are changing the way media content and data are delivered. BroadcastAsia recognises this industry shift and in 2013 will see a strong focus on the business and technological aspects of multi-platform broadcasting at both the exhibition and conferences.

The four-day event will also spotlight the hottest array of technologies currently available in global marketplace, and address important industry trends and vital challenges that are related to OTT Opportunities in Asia, Multi-Platform Streaming, Next-Gen Innovation and Technology in TV, File-Based Workflow, Pay-TV, DVB-T2, Broadcast Infrastructure and Transmission Quality, Animation, Editing & Colour correction, Motion / Film production, Production / Post Production Software and more.

Dedicated technology zones

The highly anticipated Cinematography/Film/Production Zone is slated to expand with the latest motion picture tools and software as Asia?s film industry embarks on a promising growth spurt. To complete the entire broadcasting and film ecosystem, ProfessionalAudioTechnology2013 will see professional audio companies showcasing the latest audio products and services for the broadcasting and film ecosystem, including Audio Editing, Audio Effects, Audio Production, Music and Sound Libraries, Digital Radio to Radio and more.

Asia?s most established conference for the film and TV industries

BroadcastAsia2013 International Conference, Asia?s most established conference for the film and TV industries, returns with 120 speakers from 31 countries and regions, its largest ever speaker line-up. More than a hundred case studies will be presented.

Over The Top (OTT) technology and business models will dominate this year?s conference programme.

The conference will also see an interesting set of keynote addresses, case studies, panel discussions and workshops and will feature five new tracks and four new sessions - Country Focus, Regulators Panel, CIO/CTO Panel and Captains of Industry Dialogue.

New topics and interactive dialogues for discerning content producers

The way content is now delivered has rapidly advanced in leaps and bounds. Demand from viewers for better content on multiple platforms has prompted many producers in Asia to seek ways to produce good and right content that has global appeal. With the massive amount of content out there, good quality content has become essential in order to stand out among the competition, as well as pull in and retain viewers? attention.

Back for its fourth edition, the highly anticipated Creative Content Production Conference will run from 19 - 20 June 2013 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Themed ?Producing and Distributing Successful Content in Asia?, the two-day conference will address the challenge of producing appealing and high-quality content for global audiences through a series of new topics and speakers including a ?Producers Dialogue? that was developed to serve as an additional avenue for participants to address and anticipate the upcoming trends and demands of the industry.
