CommunicAsia and Broadcast Asia 2008 had a similar hall setup as 2007. CG Overdrive was back again with a series of Animation talks. Still with 6 major halls at Singapore Expo, the exhibits failed to impress.

Both CommunicAsia and Broadcast Asia gather exhibits from all over the world to showcase cutting age market-specific technologies. However, for the past 2 years many exhibitors presented similar products and technologies. This, I fear is a representation of the industry. Besides a few companies (which are not even present at the show) with break through products like Apple with the iPhone, Microsoft with the Microsoft Tabletop Computer Surface and maybe even blu-ray players... there haven't been many WOW products.

The most notable exhibit on site had to be NHK, the Japanese broadcaster's Ultra High-Definition TV system theater. At screen resolution of 7,680x4,320 and a 22.2-channel sound system, the presentation was explosive! To think that just last year, HD at 1,920x1,080 was the in thing! We're close to seeing the end of film in due time...

With that come other good news, where existing products continue to improve and prices drop to a more humane pricing.

WiMAX is one of the emerging technologies gaining ground in the mobile world. Companies like Altai Technologies, Lanready, SOMA Networks and Ubiquiti Networks showcased their products and services displaying how WiMAX can co-exist in a market already well saturated with other technologies.

Interesting 3D monitor screen display with a sensor that tracks my eye movement. The trick is in a special 3D glass panel and creating the images in 3 different plates
