Inter BEE 2010

"Inter BEE-Leading Global Technological Trends"

With the support of Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) and National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan (NAB-J), the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA/Chairman: Setsuhiro Shimomura, Chairman of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation) will hold the "Inter BEE 2010" Audio and Video and Communications Broadcasting Equipment Exhibition at Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ward, Chiba City) for a period of 3 days between November, 17 (Wed) and November 19 (Fri), 2010.
apan's broadcasting and electronics industries have led the way in creating cutting-edge broadcast technologies, such as current core media "high-definition television (HDTV)," as well as providing a diversity of high-quality contents. Inter BEE, which has been held 46 times since its beginning in 1965, has achieved remarkable success, together with the America's NAB and Europe's IBC, in its role as a promoter of broadcasting technology. As the digital age continues to expand, HDTV which was developed and promoted in Japan has now become a mission-critical broadcast media responsible for setting remarkable worldwide trends.

Reaching record high figures for domestic and foreign exhibitors, last year's Inter Bee 2009 was a resounding success. With hopes for recovery increasing following the bottoming out of the world economic recession, "Inter BEE 2010" hopes to help further promote a new digital age by once again staging an exhibition that showcases the latest technology.

"Experience Broadcasting Innovation and Changes"

Remarkable innovations in digital technology, such as the fusion and collaboration of broadcasting and communications and the realization of a ubiquitous networking society, are bringing about great changes in the electronic industry as well as to the various media involving broadcasting. Opening up greater possibilities, digital technology is creating new business opportunities.

In the midst of rapidly transforming worldwide technology trends, Japan now has less than 1 year before TV broadcasts are completely converted to terrestrial digital broadcasting so the government, broadcasting industry, electronic equipment manufacturers, TV production companies and other bodies are collectively working towards the "changes" and "possibilities" this will bring.

Boosted by its 46th anniversary, Inter BEE will, in addition to traditional broadcasting, display a comprehensive selection of exhibits that provide an overview of a wide range of technological fields such as communications, IT, audio and lighting. HDTV-centered leading-edge broadcasts, videos, audio equipment; new workflow that utilizes IT and communications; and solutions and applications that respond to various changes will all be proudly displayed under one roof, enabling participants to experience broadcasting developments and changes.

"Reading Domestic and Worldwide Technological Trends"

Inter BEE always integrates a wide variety of events and projects into the broadcasting equipment exhibitions.
The always closely-followed "Inter BEE Content Forum" welcomes as an instructor a leading authority both here and abroad in the fields of broadcasting, video and audio, who will talk about leading industry conditions and trends. We will also hold a "Visual Symposium: Cross-Media Development of Contents" and "Audio Symposium:Audio Loudness Standards" to enable discussions. This promises to be a golden opportunity to mix with a wide variety of people from around the world.

The "Tutorial Session" will be held for the third time. Targeting young people in the industry and students interested in these areas, instructors actively working in the video and audio domains will help to nurture competent technicians in the workplace by imparting knowledge about equipment and system use, and contents creation techniques. The objective here is to contribute to future industry development through the fostering of human resources.

The "Technical Report Conference on Commercial Broadcasting" is an annual event that has been in place since the inauguration of Inter BEE. Front-line experts in the field of commercial TV discuss the constantly changing state of and problems facing commercial TV. This remains the only platform for stations to make general presentations relating to various new technologies they have developed. This provides a valuable opportunity to learn about the course and direction of future broadcasting.

This year, "IPTV, Mobile TV, Crossmedia Zone" will be held once again, where we can gather under one roof the latest IPTV services, and create a place to check-up on post-digitization mobile TV business. In addition to this, adopting a theme of digital signage, digital cinema and 3D images, we will put on a pavilion exhibition. Here you can experience the possibilities and technological advancements of new media with an increasingly expanding market. Also, at the "National Board of Regional Visual Industry Associations Forum", we will be exhibiting a wide variety of contents created by production companies and students from all around the country as well as providing trial opportunities for regional content businesses.

"Website based exhibitor and visitor support, media compatibility"

Inter BEE provides a number of services to support exhibitor companies, customers and visitors. As well as exhibition information, the official Inter BEE website "Inter BEE online" delivers a wide range of information throughout the year including broadcasting, video, and audio related industry information. The website provides information allowing site-visitors to tour the venue with ease. For example, through the website, exhibiting companies can freely enter their own information, customers and visitors can access that information, and event-related information can be checked.
