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: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
