Their booth was split into 5 areas: the OEM Zone, the Village Island Zone, the Technology Zone, the Broadcast Monitoring Zone, and the OTT/Broadband Zone. Each zone exhibited their latest products from each genre.
The CEO of Village Island, Michael Van Dorpe, enthusiastically explained, "With the spread of digital broadcasting, there are a number of innovations taking place in the broadcasting and communications industry, and we expect that the next generation of broadcasting technologies will be utilized in a variety of areas. At this year's Inter BEE, we are showing cutting edge solutions, and optimal solutions designed for today's needs."

In the Village Island Zone, HVEC HD real time decoding with the VH-2000, which offers 4K playback through the VillageSTUDIO 4k software was being demonstrated.
In the Technology Zone, on display were products such as Image Matter's JPEG 2000 4K Video Platforms offering element transmission solutions. In the Broadcast Monitoring Zone, on display was Quales' Video Monitoring System, etc.
Finally, in the OTT/Broadband Zone, Witbe's Multiscreen QoE Video Monitoring Robot was on display.
* Village STUDIO 4K, a 4K Content Player
The 4K content player, Village STUDIO 4K, is a multi-format broadcast device supporting content in HVEC, H.264, XAVC, JPEG2000, and others. It supports frame rates of 60P, which is more than enough for sports or other videos with fast motion.
It is perfect for demonstrations, exhibitions, digital signage, etc., to appeal to customers at 4K 60p 10bit.
Mr. Fukushima said, "Our company supplies HD Village STUDIO, a broadcast regulator device that is coupled with televisions used for advertising media in a major national network of consumer electronics stores (100 stores, totaling approximately 5000 television monitors [JIS212]) in all 47 prefectures of Japan, and since the proportion of 4K television in these stores is growing, we started developing devices that support 4K very early on."
*DTU-315, a Universal Multi-standard Modulating USB3 Device
The DekTec DTU-315, on display in the OEM Zone, is a universal, multi-standard modulating USB3 interface device. It supports every kind of broadcast format, including terrestrial signals, satellite signals, CATV signals, etc., from around the world. It also supports modulation bandwidth of up to 70MHz for the next generation of broadcasting (4K).
CEO Van Dorpe explains, "Among products that support the whole world's digital broadcasting formats, including 4K-generation broadcasting, this is number one for portability. It can be used for test signal generation for a variety of broadcast formats or as a module for independent broadcasting. It is also optimal as a tool for demonstrations or research."
The new VH-2000 is a TS-input multi-format software encoder. It supports DVI-ASI and IP input and HEVC, H.264 and MPEG-2 video formats. The HEVC video codec, with nearly double the compression of H.264, can offer even clearer video playback at the same bitrate.
*Providing Cutting Edge Solutions, and Optimal Solutions Designed for Today's Needs
CEO Van Dorpe explained the company's management philosophy as follows.
"Our company's motto is Move Fast, Implement Fast. We are dedicated to providing our customers with the latest in digital broadcast technologies and contributing to society through the broadcasting industry. While we strive to bring excellent foreign products to the domestic market quickly, our own products, which incorporate domestic technologies, also play a ‘bridging’ role towards global development."
"As broadcasting transitions from analog to digital, processor capability is rapidly advancing, and the ever improving performance of broadcasting technologies and software is remarkable. In response to these trends, we are putting our efforts into software development. We offer branded/OEM products and SDK platforms Based on our software development capabilities, as such, our greatest strength is our flexible ability to offer creative solutions tailored to user."
They actively participate in overseas exhibitions, CEO Van Dorpe added, "From our subsidiary office in office, we provide broadcasting equipment broadly throughout countries including in East Asia, the Pacific, India, etc.,".
On September 29th they moved into their new office in Meguro. "We hope that this will give the business a fresh start. We hope everybody gets a chance to experience the new Village Island technologies at our booths," said Van Dorpe.
