Principal sponsor WorldDMB and major sponsors Sony, Harris Broadcast, Grass Valley and EMC are among the key industry partners participating in the ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium 2014, taking place in Kuala Lumpur on 4-7 March.


The annual Symposium, organised by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, is as a premier event in the region’s broadcasting calendar, attracting more than 1,000 participants from the region and beyond.

The 2014 symposium, titled Embracing Technological Innovations, is the tenth in the series, designed to help radio and television broadcasters and the industry to successfully transition to digital. It will feature presentations by experts, panel discussions and workshops, as well as an exhibition showcasing the latest broadcasting technology and services.

The ABU Director Technology, Dr Amal Punchihewa, said: “The aim of the symposium is to help broadcasters and others in the industry to collaborate to achieve success. We are delighted by the support for the 2014 event from major industry players.”

“Technological changes in the media landscape have given rise to new challenges for broadcasters especially in their investment plans, in meeting the audiences’ growing demands for delivering content beyond traditional platforms, and in adapting to fast evolving transmission technology.

“With better resolution in pictures, better quality in sound, better devices, and savings in operations at every point in the broadcast value chain, stakeholders need to be proactive in responding to market trends and demands. DBS 2014 is where participants will find the answers to these challenges”, he added.
