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.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
