Media Coverage Information


The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA; Mr. Kaoru Yano, Chairman; Chairman of NEC Corporation) will hold Inter BEE 2011 - The Professional Show for Audio, Video and Communication - in Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba City) for three days from November 16(Wednesday) to November 18(Friday) with the support of the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) and National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan (NAB-J).
Inter BEE is approaching its 47th exhibition since starting in 1965. The event has achieved significant growth as a driving force of broadcasting technology along with NAB in the United States and IBC in Europe. Against a background of the spread in the diversification of content caused by digitalization of media, Inter BEE is undergoing a transformation toward becoming a comprehensive media exhibition for video content production and distribution technology.
Inter BEE 2010 was successfully held with the number of exhibitors from Japan and overseas reaching a record high for the second consecutive year. Inter BEE 2011 will provide business opportunities as a place for international technological exchange and for extensive demand development in order to take on the role as a driving force in the broadcasting, audio and video industries more than ever before as we look toward the new digital age in the future.
In addition, from 9:40 am on the opening day of November 16(Wednesday), the Inter BEE 2011 Opening Ceremony will be held in the Central Entrance of the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall (in front of Hall 5 on the 2nd floor), as outlined below.
