BroadcastAsia2013 registers strong Indian participation

To be held at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from June 18-21, BroadcastAsia 2013 is set to feature groundbreaking technologies and spotlight hottest industry trends for the broadcast and film value chain.

Speaking at a press meet in Mumbai on May 10, 2013, Calvin Koh, Assistant Project Director for BroadcastAsia from organiser Singapore Exhibition Services (SES) said, “With the advent of innovative technology and the recent large scale digitisation, Indian broadcasters and consumers are both at a threshold of a technology revolution. As demand grows for advanced technology and content for the dynamic Indian audiences, the industry is embracing world class practices and formats. BroadcastAsia 2013 is an ideal platform for Indian players to partner with world leaders as well as reach out to clients beyond India.”

Leading Indian experts, including Vishal Malhotra, Business Head - New Media, Zee Entertainment and Jai Maroo, Director & owner of Shemaroo Entertainment, will be part of a panel at the BroadcastAsia 2013 International Conference.

Some of the key speakers include, Peter Hutton, Managing Director, ESPN Star Sports; Dato Amrin Awaluddin, Group Managing Director, Media Prima Berhad; Graham Kill, CEO, Irdeto; Kurt Hoppe, Director, Smart TV Innovation at LG Electronics; Benjamin Grubbs, APAC Head of Partner Marketing of YouTube; and Jay Fulcher, CEO, Ooyala, among others.

With the rise of Smart TVs and the blurring of the boundaries between TV and social networks, consumers will be watching TV within social networks and vice versa, impacting the way they engage with TV. BroadcastAsia 2013 will be addressing this latest phenomenon with showcases from leading industry bigwigs, as well as up-to-date conference topics, such as 4K TV, OTT, Multi-Screen Streaming, DVB-T2, Satellite/ Terrestrial/ Cable Broadcasting, Production and Post-Production Software and many more.

The last edition of BroadcastAsia, together with CommunicAsia, attracted close to 2,000 exhibitors and over 50,000 professional attendees from around the globe.
