  Largest-ever Singapore Pavilion at BroadcastAsia2008
            Record 50 exhibiting companies to showcase pioneering solutions and
                    cutting-edge technologies at the Singapore Pavilion.


Singapore, 10 June 2008 – BroadcastAsia2008, themed “Digital: The Journey Forward”,
returns, bringing together 760 companies from the broadcast and digital media industry to
showcase the latest products and technologies. The annual event, held alongside
CommunicAsia2008 from 17 – 20 June 2008, at the Singapore Expo is expected to attract
over 68,000 trade attendees. About 50 percent is expected to come from overseas,
reflecting the international nature of the event.


The Singapore Pavilion will be the anchor group pavilion at BroadcastAsia2008. Led by
the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), the 1,200 sq metre pavilion will
house 50 Singapore companies at the forefront of the new digital broadcasting wave,
showcasing the best of the Singapore media industry’s capabilities. The companies will
exhibit pioneering technologies, applications and services in digital broadcasting and
media, as well as cutting edge experimental Interactive & Digital Media (IDM) projects. Of
these pioneering solutions is the launch of the world’s first terrestrial DAB AAC+ (Digital
Audio Broadcast) commercial operation by Rediffusion, as well as two-way interactive
broadcasting services in taxis by QMax and PGK.


The digital media landscape in Singapore has witnessed significant developments in the
last twelve months. The launch of SingTel’s IPTV service mio TV, MediaCorp’s high
definition channel HD5 and the announcement of Singapore Press Holdings’ Razor TV
service are testament to the innovation and vibrancy of the industry. Experimentation with



                                                                                Page 1 of 21
new mobile broadcasting services has increased with companies like Innoxius
Technologies, Singapore Digital and MediaCorp (in partnership with M1) now holding trial
licences from MDA to conduct commercial and technical studies of mobile broadcasting.


“The Singapore Pavilion at BroadcastAsia2008 not only showcases innovative commercial
products and services, it also provides a glimpse into the future through the exciting IDM
exhibits. The pavilion captures MDA’s vision to grow a vibrant media hub, and create a
conducive environment for the test bedding of innovative applications, services and
technologies. This approach aims to encourage multi-platform content development and
innovation in IDM sectors. We also aim to attract more broadcasters and industry players
to use Singapore as a launch pad to regionalise their businesses”, said Dr Christopher
Chia, Chief Executive Officer, MDA.


Apart from the Singapore Pavilion, BroadcastAsia2008 visitors will also witness the future
of broadcasting at NHK’s Super Hi-Vision (SHV) wide-screen system feature. Boasting a
resolution 16 times higher than HDTV and a 3-D audio system with 24 speakers, the SHV
system is being showcased for the first time in Asia, outside of Japan. Visitors can also
expect a bigger and more comprehensive HD Xperience. This year’s HD Xperience will
demonstrate how Media Asset Management (MAM) technology can be leveraged to help
broadcasters transform their workflows and benefit more from open standards based
production and archiving. The HD Studio will present a comprehensive and end to end
overview of how HD content is developed and delivered to the end-user.


CGOverdrive2008 – Asia’s unparalleled computer graphics event designed for CG
professionals and enthusiasts – will also return for the third consecutive year.
CGOverdrive is organised by Visual Communication Order with Singapore Exibition
Services as strategic partner. The event is supported by MDA.


“The broadcast and digital content industry is growing faster than ever, driven by the
proliferation of local and regional companies providing products and services for the
Internet, TV distribution, regulated gaming and video games,” said Mr Stephen Tan, Chief
Executive of Singapore Exhibition Services, the organiser of BroadcastAsia2008. “We are
also seeing more globally-renowned broadcast and production firms coming to the market
and setting up production facilities in Singapore. BroadcastAsia acts as a key annual



                                                                               Page 2 of 21
fixture and a very relevant platform for players from this burgeoning sector to do their
sourcing, purchasing and networking.”


A journey into the future at the Singapore Pavilion
The highlight of the Pavilion is a cutting-edge showcase of digital technologies that will
change the way people consume and interact with media. They are some of the early
commercial offerings brought about by the support of the multi-agency IDM Research &
Development Programme Office (IDMPO) hosted within MDA.


The IDM journey will take visitors into the future of interactivity, where physical locations
will be enriched by intelligent rich media solutions for more pervasive and intelligent
interactivities. From two-way interactive broadcasting in taxis by QMax and PGK, to online
face recognition for the creation of personalised avatars by XID Technologies, and online
conference solutions, visitors will witness how media has gone beyond the constraints of
traditional broadcasting to reach consumers in more personal and entertaining ways.


The IDM showcase will also showcase new types of user interface with the virtual
environment, including a virtual in-building information and navigation of the Singapore
Pavilion by G Element, using tangible mixed reality by MXR Corporation.


Also in the spotlight are exhibits by MDA’s Digital Technology Development Scheme
(DTDS) recipients showcasing cable TV, Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) and mobile
broadcasting technologies. DTDS is a scheme that supports local companies in
developing original and innovative products, applications and services for the
broadcasting industry. A key IPTV exhibit is the Pay TV Head-end System developed by
NewMedia Solutions, which is a locally-developed system that provides a cost effective
end-to-end solution for emerging markets and niche pay TV operators. Components of
this head-end system are already being commercially deployed in continuous 24x7
commercial broadcast operations at SingTel’s mio TV in Singapore and U Television in
Malaysia.


Among the mobile broadcasting projects is the Pico DVB-H Basestation developed by
Innoxius Technologies. Touted as one of the world’s smallest form factor DVB-H base




                                                                                  Page 3 of 21
station, this product leverages on a building's wired IP infrastructure to provide indoor
broadcasting of mobile TV signals (eg. DVB-H) and location-specific content.


In addition, Rediffusion will launch the world’s first terrestrial DAB AAC+ (Digital Audio
Broadcast) commercial operation. More commonly known as DAB+, it uses the latest
audio compression technology and can broadcast up to 30 audio channels of CD-stereo
quality for the same bandwidth currently used.


Regional Conferences
In addition to the Singapore Pavilion at the exhibition, MDA will be organising two events
during the BroadcastAsia week which will provide platforms for engagement with regional
partners on digital broadcasting. MDA is co-organising the inaugural Regional Seminar on
Digital   Terrestrial   Television   Broadcasting    (DTTB)     with   the     International
Telecommunications Union (ITU), Canal France International (CFI) and the Asia-Pacific
Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD). The seminar will provide technical and
policy training to support the collective effort of ASEAN countries in the adoption of a
common digital TV broadcasting standard.


MDA will also host the 6th ASEAN Digital Broadcasting meeting on 19 June. This closed
door meeting will discuss the adoption of technical specifications for basic SD and HD set-
top boxes. This meeting follows from last year’s endorsement of the DVB-T standard as
the common ASEAN terrestrial DTV standard.


The MDA led Singapore Pavilion is located at 8F4-01, Singapore Expo Hall 8.
