markets today. Speakers will elaborate on opportunities in Mobile TV, WiMAX

Held concurrently at BroadcastAsia2008, The BroadcastAsia2008 International
Conference will focus on the evolution and future of broadcasting. In
addition to addressing the challenges and solutions to transition to high
definition (HD), the conference will also present HD showcases that shows
workflow and production examples including virtual studio in HD, as well as
pan and scan technology for mobile devices. As with a myriad of other
applications, Internet Protocol (IP) will play a large 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 is a global event where the business of technology comes to
life, showcasing the latest digital technologies across mobile networks and
applications, network infrastructure and satellite communications.
