CASBAA gets new patrons and corporate members

The Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) has announced two new patrons and four corporate members of the Association for the second half of 2007. The two new patrons are based in the US -- global video transmission specialist Genesis Networks, and mobile technology supplier Qualcomm MediaFLO Technologies.

Meanwhile, another four organisations have signed as Corporate Members, including law firm Minter Ellison, which has its Asia Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong; Indonesian DTH platform PT Direct Vision; Singapore-based satellite services provider SAT-GE; and news media and entertainment company Television Eighteen.

Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA commented, “It is exciting to see the continuous growth of our membership, reflecting strong global confidence in the Asia Pacific market.”

In April, six corporate members had joined CASBAA, including Tata Sky of India. CASBAA now represents the interests of around 125 member companies from across 14 Asia Pacific markets, covering multiple sectors including cable, satellite, broadband and mobile TV content suppliers and platforms, as well as equipment vendors.

Upcoming programmes for the rest of this year include the CASBAA Sports TV Forum in Beijing on August 24, and the CASBAA Convention 2007 in Hong Kong from October 30 to November 2.
