“Bringing in technologies from our partner institutes will provide our audience, both local and overseas, with an even wider choice of selection. With the presence of key Asia News Network (ANN) members, and boasting a growing digital media technology showcase, we hope to attract both media solution seekers and solution providers to the event,” explained Mr Philip Lim, Chief Executive of ETPL.

Following on the MoU signed with ETPL in June this year, key executives from members of the ANN will be anchoring the morning half of the event, sharing with audience their new initiatives and technology needs.  “The scale and focus of the event on digital media, which included a showcase of a large number of technologies applicable to our media industry was what attracted our attention,” said Mr. Pana Janviroj, president of Nation Multimedia Group and Executive Director of the ANN.

To be held on October 1, the event will showcase ETPL’s efforts in fostering an ecosystem for the commercialisation of digital media technologies.  The growing capabilities of digital media present both media and advertisers with the unprecedented opportunities to allow them to better connect and engage with its consumers. Partners and start-ups will also unveil a variety of new applications and solutions in areas ranging from image manipulation detection and video streaming to online shopping and multilingual chatting.
