Broadcast Innovation Days see success in Asia
ASIA: Broadcast Solutions’ ongoing series of Broadcast Innovation Days saw events staged in Jakarta and Hanoi recently, with support from partner companies Riedel, IHSE, Zenon Media and Jünger Audio. The two events were the first time that Innovation Days had been organised jointly with partner companies and were designed as lectures with an additional exhibition, plus hands-on sessions on the products and solutions presented. The German systems integrator reported a ‘huge’ interest from the local broadcast community, making the events ‘a great success’.
In Jakarta and Hanoi the companies teamed up to demonstrate a wide variety of products and solutions under the title Think Big, Start Small – The Power to Scale. Both sessions also focused on topics including options on streamlining the broadcast workflow and how broadcasters can implement future-proof solutions. They also discussed the requirements of local broadcast companies and solutions to meet ever-changing production demands. According to Broadcast Solutions, one of the main concerns of the attendees was the need for future-proof solutions and how they can migrate existing workflows as technology evolves. For example, with the rise of IP-based solutions, should broadcasters stick to known and practised technology or develop a new path to IP?
Visitors could also to learn about Broadcast Solutions’ pre-configured Streamline OB Van family. Also on display was the complete portfolio of multichannel recording and slow motion servers and video judging solutions from slomo.tv, alongside software-based solutions such as broadcast Ultrasoft and Serenity, as well as Satcom antennas and Robycam stabilised rail and flying’ camera systems.
‘The Broadcast Innovation Days in Asia were the latest instalment in a series of events invented by Broadcast Solutions,’ concluded Peter Jakobsson, business development director at Broadcast Solutions. ‘To get in direct contact with the members of the broadcast business in specific regions the shape of these events proved to be completely right. The main focus of the events is to become more familiar with regional broadcast markets and the transfer of know-how to the visitors that is beneficial.’
