Broadcast India, organized by Kavita Meer of Saicom Trade Fairs & Exhibitions Pvt Ltd, was back as a hit this year. The 2011 Broadcast India show was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai (Bombay) from October 20 to 22, 2011. Along with the exhibition, Broadcast India also held a two day conference: a platform for informative presentations, lively discussions and enlightening debates.
Broadcast India is an exhibition dedicated to the rapidly evolving broadcast and entertainment industry in India and showcasing many of the world’s leading companies with their latest technologies for the broadcast, film, 3D & Digital cinema, lights, animation, audio, radio, IPTV and mobile TV industries.
589 companies from 33 countries exhibited their state-of-the-art equipment and technology at this year’s show. Some of the world’s leading manufacturers like Panasonic, Sony, Avid, Harris, ARRI, Cartoni, Transvideo, Cooke, P+S Technik GmbH, Herman, Blackmagic Design, Autodesk, Christie Digital Systems, Orad, Canon, Cinectech, Datavideo, Wasp3D, Fujinon, Thomson Grass Valley, Panther, AJA Video Systems, RCS, Innovision Optics, just to name a few,
On its conclusion after 3 days, both the exhibition and conference welcomed an unprecedented number of visitors from various fields of the entertainment industry, and recorded a 33% overall growth in exhibition space, thereby making it the most well-attended and successful Broadcast India Show to date.
During the show, Jacques Delacoux, president of Transvideo and Geoff Chappell international sales director Cooke presented the Ravi K. Potdar Award to the director of photography Mr. Ratnavelu (a.k.a Randy). The ace cameraman was chosen for the prestigious award for his outstanding contribution to the Indian Film industry.
Mr. Rathnavelu is one of India’s most sought-after cinematographers today. A meteoric career graph, combined with his unusual, often unconventional choice of films all have made him a much written-about cinematographer.
Since 1991, the Broadcast India show is a clear manifestation of the limitless possibilities in the field of broadcasting & film technology and promises to carry into the future the commitment to contribute toward and boost the progress of the industry. It would be an incomparable experience that one would want be a part of.
The 2012 edition will be held from the 10th to the 12th of October at the Bombay Exhibition Center (Goregaon). For any inquiries, go to: www.broadcastindiashow.com
