The Asia-Pacific market deserves your close scrutiny, as this region is a superb environment for the technologies and capabilities of satcom. To help us wade through the complexities of this market segment, the CommunicAsia2008 event is upcoming and will meet in Singapore from June 17th through the 20th. Since 1979, the information and communication media industries have been brought together to share information that has been rapidly evolving.

Technology has emerged from the realms of involving only the biggest players — to the inclusion of a broader range and wider variety of various sized industries. Technology has increasingly made the world a smaller place, and this gathering enables all who participate to participate on an even playing field.

This year’s exhibition and summit will serve market-specific technology clusters with programs that address IPTV/mobile entertainment, WiMAX, and more, with group pavilions and displays. Sure to be one of the hot topics will be the transition to HDTV and interactive services.

The Summit provides conferences such as: Access Networks and Technologies; Mobile and Interactive Services; Convergence and IMS; Satellite Communications; Applications, Delivery and Devices, and more. Speakers will include prominent leaders and CEOs who share their perspectives on key issues that impact their business, and offer initiatives to the development of the Asia-Pacific satellite market.

Some of the latest products from Ericsson, PCCW Global, Samsung, Singtel, Tandberg TV, Thaicom Public Company Limited, and Yahoo will be on display, as they move into the next chapter of infocomms. Satellite industry participants include GlobeCast, IntelSat, MEASAT, Speedcast, and Thuraya, providing the latest in communications’ products and services to some of Asia’s leading broadcasters and telecom operators.

In addition, this year will herald some newcomers whose offerings will include upcoming products and services for the region and world.

CommunicAsia products debuts will be presented from Yahoo, Navteq, TeleAtlas, Sandisk, SK Telesys, and local Sirius Multimedia.

Running simultaneously, BroadcastAsia2008 International Conference will focus on the evolution and future of broadcasting.

Programs will address the challenges and solutions to transition to high definition (HD), and showcase workflow and production examples including a virtual studio in HD, and pan and scan technology for mobile devices. Internet Protocol (IP) will be addressed, as it will be an important part of driving the digitization of media in the future. IP will provide more flexibility in terms of monitoring and control for operators looking to manage the quality and efficacy of their broadcasts.

“CommunicAsia and BroadcastAsia is the choice platform for the leading companies to address the upcoming agenda for the information communications and media industries in the next year,” said Victor Wong, Project Director at show organizer Singapore Exhibition Services (SES).

“Besides being an ideal business and networking forum, the typical exhibitor and visitor to the shows are looking out for industry insights and feedback on where technology will be headed in the next 12 to 18 months,” Wong added. “This is an integral part of the sustaining appeal and value that the shows have consistently offered each year.”.
