The sound of change: Audio matters at CABSAT 2015

CABSAT 2015, the leading professional content event in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA), will provide an ideal platform for more than 900 exhibitors from 60 countries to discuss critical audio-related issues across the region’s broadcast and content production industries. 

Audio topics are currently among the hottest conversations in broadcasting given the ever-growing consumer demands driven by the increasingly connected world and the opportunities presented by the Internet of Everything (IoE) – the hyper-network of connected physical objects that enable enhanced value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and other connected devices.

In terms of revenue generation, CABSAT exhibitor Cisco believes the Internet of Everything represents a US$19 trillion global opportunity over the next decade – split into US$13.4 trillion for private sector firms and US$4.6 trillion for cities, governments and public sector organisations exploring IoE-driven avenues to save on costs, increase productivity and enhance citizen experiences.

“With international media and content broadcasters and distributors facing a host of challenges and opportunities as the new disruptive digital media landscape moves to audio over IP, CABSAT will host an array of innovative, audio-related products, services and solutions across the booming, multi-room audio market – from the latest Smart Homes to high-res audio streaming,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions & Events Management, DWTC.
