InterBEE 2011, held November 16-19 near Tokyo, had companies from 34 countries exhibiting cinema, video and audio products in 1329 booths. There were more than 30,000 visitors–a record attendance.
Slideshow, above. My quick impressions: 3D was almost gone. The flavor of the show was 4K and 8K.
The company that introduced a 4K recorder 2 years ago introduced an 8K UNCOMPRESSED recorder.
Sony had a hugh screen, with projectors.
Canon introduced their C300 in Japan.
Mitsubishi to my surprise only consumer Panels.
GIN-ICHI, previously importer of Pro Photo gear and also Pro Foto Studio Flash, suddenly turned motion….They now also represent GoPro.
We saw our friends from Band Pro, 16×9 Inc, Chrosziel, Tiffen, Steadicam, Lowel, cmotion, Fujifilm Corp, etc.
