French audio-visual expertise to star at IBC in September

22.06.2010
The French Pavilion at IBC, the leading international event for the electronic media, will present 33 French companies from across the audio-visual sector. IBC will be held in Amsterdam from 9 to 14 September 2010. The 410m² French Pavilion is being organised by the Paris Chamber of Commerce & Industry (CCIP) in partnership with France Broadcast.

The French Pavilion, which will be located in Halls 2, 8 and 11 of the IBC trade show, in Amsterdam (in the Netherlands), will present 33 exhibitors in radio, in television, in the electronic media, and in content-generating industries. French expertise from across the sector will be showcased, including lighting, video and sound technology; vision solutions; broadcasting software; video distribution; and, finally, radio-broadcast systems. A full list of exhibitors on the French Pavilion is available upon request.

As in other countries, the audio-visual sector in France has been revolutionised by the development of digital technology, which has led to radical changes both in the industry and in associated services. The major development of recent years has been the unexpected success of digital terrestrial television (DTTV). As of the beginning of 2010, 87% of the French population is now in an area that is covered by DTTV. The deployment of DTTV is continuing, with a goal of reaching 95% of the French population by 2011.

Access to digital media in France has grown at a steady pace – currently, 60% of households have access to digital television (DTTV, satellite, ADSL or cable). DTTV has been responsible for much of this growth, but the reception of TV via ADSL also accounts for a significant share of the digital-media boom of the past few years.

Digital radio, on the other hand, is still relatively undeveloped in France. It was officially launched in 2009 during the SIEL-SATIS-RADIO trade show in Paris, and an initial pylon intended for digital terrestrial radio was inaugurated on 26 May 2010 in Nantes (in the west of the country). It is being used for the experimental broadcast of a programme package. Two competing standards (T-DMB and DAB+) will be tested for about 100 professionals from the sector.

Digital radio will allow for an increase in the volume of radio programmes (since the FM bandwidth is currently saturated), as well as better coverage, with a single frequency for every radio station on the network. In the future, it will also be possible to display information and/or images on the screens of digital radio receivers.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
