In anticipation of an expanding broadcast market in Myanmar, professional video and audio systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions – Asia will host its first Broadcast Technology Conference, March 17-18, 2015, at Parkview Hotel in Yangon. Working with the International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers (IABM), ABS has developed a free two-day conference that will include representatives from a number of major manufacturers.
Currently, Myanmar only permits TV broadcast stations to be government or joint venture (government and private) operations. Later this year, however, experts anticipate the country will enact a major policy change to establish a national broadcaster and allow private companies to operate legally.
“Myanmar’s new broadcast laws will be a great opportunity and result in a surge in production, but it also means new and current broadcasters will need to get up to speed quickly on the latest technologies to compete,” explained Dennis Breckenridge, managing director, Advanced Broadcast Solutions – Asia. “Our Broadcast Technology Conference has been designed to provide information about workflows, infrastructures, and a number of products from some of the industry’s top manufacturers.”
The conference program includes panel discussions on market challenges, viewer expectations, facility design, and more. International production company activeTV will lead a session on producing content, while sessions hosted by manufacturers will discuss infrastructure, graphics, cameras, LED lighting, workflows, and more. Participating companies include Canara, Harmonic, Ikegami, Riedel, Thomson Broadcast, Playbox, Tektronix, and Vizrt. Lunch and tea breaks for attendees are also included.
Registration for the Broadcast Technology Conference is free, but space is limited. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
