■Expected to be largest ever
Inter BEE 2018 is currently preparing to hold a comprehensive media communication and entertainment event which, with an emphasis on “contents”, covers "making (production)", "sending (transmission)", and "receiving (experience)" contents.
At the current point in time, we have received applications exceeding the record number of companies that exhibited at the previous event (1,139 companies), so we are expecting the coming exhibition to be the largest ever.
■New 4K/8K satellite broadcasting to start soon! Revealing the whole picture!
