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 quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
