ConnecTechAsia 2019 18th to 20th June

ConnecTechAsia 2019, comprising of CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia and NXTAsia, took place in Singapore from 18th to 20th June 2019 at Marina Bay Sands and Suntec Convention Centre. Although this wasn’t my first visit to ConnecTechAsia, my previous visits over the years were through invitations by conpanies. This time however, was my first time whereby I applied for media accreditation and there was a bloggers/influencers category, making it a lot easier for folks like us, writing and publishing B2B/Enterprise technology topics to apply.

What were the key themes/topics for ConnecTechAsia 2019?

5G

A key focus at CommunicAsia, the 5G Xperience zone at Marina Bay Sands presented by KT Corporation (KT), South Korea’s largest telecommunications company, is an immersive sandbox where visitors can see 5G come to life.

Smart Cities

Smart cities have been a focus of governments as they meet rising challenges from growing populations, rapid urbanisation and desire to improve their citizens’ quality of life.

Future Enterprises, Intelligent Industries

As industries continue to undergo digital transformation, emerging technologies such as AI, IoT, blockchain, cloud and big data are increasingly being integrated into business processes. This presents enterprises with the golden opportunity to harness new technologies to improve their efficiencies and transform into smart, digitally-first organisations.

Media, Broadcasting and 5G

“Thanks to TV digitisation, networking everywhere has totally transformed the TV industry including tying in social media with video on demand. 5G will only further accelerate this especially with 4K. Just like with the Internet, video will be the stimulus towards the establishment of 5G, yet there will be a larger future impact due to healthcare, gaming, automotive, AI, public transport, utilities and IoT devices,” says Stan Moote, Chief Technology Officer, IABM.

As we continue to witness the convergence of technologies that are blurring the lines between the technology, media and telecommunication sectors, ConnecTechAsia is committed to its vision of empowering businesses and helping them navigate the changes that are unfolding over the digital economy,” says Ian Roberts, Regional Executive Director – ASEAN Business, Informa Markets.

“ConnecTechAsia continues to be the regional Telecom, Media and Technology event to look out for. I look forward to engaging with industry thought leaders and companies to exchange views on emerging technological trends and how we can collectively seize new opportunities in the Digital Economy,” says Tan Kiat How, Chief Executive, Infocomm Media Development Authority.

Over the period of 3 days from 18th to 20th June, I visited BroadcastAsia, CommunicAsia and NXTAsia, with some appointments booked through pr agencies or the brands themselves to visit some of their booths.

CommunicAsia and NXTAsia

My application to ConnectTechAsia 2019 was a writer under my technology and business portal/blog, covering B2B/Enterprise technology topics. Due to the size of the exhibitors, I wasn’t able to cover everything, I was particularly interested in NXTAsia, the future of technology, IoT, 5G. Although I didn’t reply to all the invites by pr agencies to visit booths and their exhibits at ConnecTechAsia, I do make an effort to visit and tour their exhibits/services/technology without making an appointment. I also visited this technology booth PayKey, do check them out!

The country pavilions at NXTAsia were also interesting, it’s good to know and learn more about different technological developments and services in various countries/states, I visited Korea Pavilion and State of Victoria, Australia pavilions and viewed some of their innovative technology products and services.

There was a particular summit that I attended on 20th June 2019, on Future of Work & Innovation Track, on this particular discussion topic: Crowdsourced Threat Intelligence. I would be sharing more on this topic in another article! Thanks to ConnecTechAsia, I managed to link up and have a very fruitful and informative fireside chat with Uppsala Security on cybersecurity and blockchain!

BroadcastAsia

This would always suits me since I run a small proprietorship photography business, the range of photography, cinematography and broadcast showcases suited my scope of business. I visited the booths of Canon, Sony, Zhiyun, Fujifilm, Cathay Photo, SLR Revolution (for Boya) and Accedo TV.

Key highlights and announcements from ConnecTechAsia 2019

There were a number of key highlights and announcements coming out from ConnecTechAsia 2019, I would share them below from the press release information received:

5G and Smart Cities

At ConnecTechAsia, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was inked between ConnecTechAsia, Smart Cities Network and Smart Cities Council India on ‘The Digitally Twinned Smart Cities Initiative’ on 19 June. This signifies a pioneering regional effort aligned to the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) that encourages a proactive, innovative, and entrepreneurial approach towards the creation and development of Digitally Twinned Smart Cities from participating countries. The MoU covers the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of Digitally Twinned Smart Cities, and several cities in ASEAN and India are set to come on board.

Notable product launches

– OTSAW’s O-R2 indoor autonomous security robot

– Solustar’s VAL II, its smart concierge robot that gives a boost to the front-line service industry

Virtual Reality (VR)

Korea’s Salin Co. inking a deal with Singapore’s Green Lab to bring its EpicLive VR education platforms to international schools in Singapore and regional Asian countries.

Gaming and eSports

“Esports is driving significant growth for the live entertainment sector, and is also a converging point with other industries such as media, broadcast productions, advertising, and games,” says Nicholas Khoo, Co-Founder & Chairman of Singapore’s Cybersports and Online Gaming Association. “ASEAN itself has become a significant focal point for the region with a massive uptake of smartphones and rising income levels. With emerging technologies such as 5G, VR and IoT there is a lot of potential for esport’s further growth and expansion, which is also bringing about massive opportunities for the world’s largest brands.”

* Information via press releases from Informa Markets and Omnicom Public Relations Group *

Overall, I had an interesting time, visiting different booths at ConnecTechAsia, networking with some of the companies, hopefully, it would be beneficial for me on both fronts of B2B/Enterprise technology writing and photography business (both still photography and videography).

There were 38,000 attendees and 1,700 exhibitors over Marina Bay Sands and Suntec Singapore during ConnecTechAsia 2019. Due to the big scale and size of CommunicAsia, BroadcastAsia and NXTAsia under one roof of ConnecTechAsia, I was only able to cover topics closer to what I have been covering over the past few years.

Keep a lookout for some of my upcoming articles from my coverage of ConnecTechAsia 2019, from my visits to some of the booths and having a chat with them.

ConnecTechAsia returns from 9th to 11th June 2010 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Do mark the dates down on your calendar!

Charge your Device with the First Wireless Portable Charger from Sony

To meet the demands of the latest generation of smartphones users who prefer wireless charging of their devices, Sony has announced the CP-W5, a new USB Portable charger that is able to wirelessly charge[1] Qi-compatible devices using an electromagnetic field. This inductive charging technology presents extra convenience for gadget-savvy consumers who are always out and about, as they would not need to use a Micro USB cable. However, if they prefer charging using the conventional way, it can also be done with a cable. The CP-W5 has a high output of 1.0A if the device is charged wirelessly and 1.5A when used with a cable.

image004

The CP-W5 has a broad range of charging options. Its main strength lies in the fact that it can charge devices wirelessly or via a charging cable while on the go. It also serves as a charging plate when connected to an AC power supply. Simply place the Qi-compatible device on top of the CP-W5 and both your device and CP-W5 will be charged at the same time. The CP-W5 comes with Sony’s Li-ion Polymer rechargeable battery that has a capacity of 5,000mAh, and is ready to be used out of the package immediately to charge your smartphone.

Sony introduces The Walkman ZX1

Sony recently announced the launch of their new signature Walkman series, the Walkman® NWZ-ZX1, designed especially for those who demand the very best in music playback quality while on the move. Utilising its proprietary audio technologies and support for High-Resolution Audio[1] to offer up to seven times the audio quality than what a CD[2] can deliver, Sony has developed a high-performance portable music player that takes listeners right into the recording studio or concert.

Walkman NWZ-ZX1 (2)

Powered by a OMAP™4 Cortex-A9 1GHz dual-core processor, the Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 has the latest S-Master HX™ digital amplifier built in, which helps to reduce distortion and noise at all frequency ranges and is optimised for High-Resolution Audio. Combined with Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX™) technology that upgrades[3] the audio quality of existing compressed sound files to near High-Resolution Audio quality and ClearAudio+™ to ensure realistic audio playback of ground-shaking lows to delicate highs, consumers will be hearing music just as the artist intended.

Walkman NWZ-ZX1 (3)

The Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 has an aluminium body combined with brass-plated components for a very clean and sleek design. A moulded base at its rear acts as an amp block to house all electrical components necessary for high-quality music reproduction. In addition, its leather-effect rear rubber grip adds comfort and stability when holding it in one’s hands. Besides giving the Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 its well-crafted and industrial design, high-grade aluminium alloy was chosen for its rigidity, and carving out the body from a single piece of metal minimises any unwanted inference and electrical noise to deliver stable high-quality 196KHz/24bit audio in various formats, including FLAC, Apple Lossless and AIFF.

Walkman NWZ-ZX1 (4)

Besides the hardware, Sony has also taken into consideration other factors that may impede on audio quality. The S-Master HX™ digital amplifier uses a film capacitor with good thermal properties for its audio output stage filter to reproduce the tonal nuances of string instruments and vocals and vibrant overtones of woodwind instruments. Besides incorporating a larger, higher-quality OS-CON polymer capacitor typically not used in mobile devices, the battery connection of the Walkman® has also been strengthened with protection circuits and special lower-resistance cables to deliver deep and booming bass notes and explosive mid- to high-range notes. A common source for sound distortion, Sony has opted to design a larger headphone jack to help reduce wear and tear damage over time by reducing contact resistance while still stabilising contact point pressure.

The Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 combines the audio quality that the Walkman® brand is known for with the versatility of the Android platform. Running on Android 4.1, users can download apps via Google Play to fully explore the entertainment potential of the Walkman®. A host of connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® and NFC for One-touch listening, giving users unlimited options when playing music either at home, outdoors or any other location – with just a simple wireless pairing of compatible devices.

Walkman NWZ-ZX1 (5)

The flagship Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 comes with 128GB of built-in memory capable of storing High-Resolution Audio content equivalent to approximately 800 songs[1]. It is the largest capacity Walkman® ever produced by Sony. Viewing of the large library of high-quality music files is made easy with its brilliant 4-inch (854 x 480 pixel) TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile touchscreen. Buttons for playback, pause, song selection and volume have been thoughtfully mapped to be located by the side of the ZX1, allowing users to play audio and video quickly and conveniently. A dedicated WM-PORT has also been built in to allow for the output of audio. A new dashboard feature for the Music Player application gives users the freedom to choose what content they want to enjoy directly from the screen itself. And when you can’t decide on what to listen to, let the SensMe Channels app suggests songs for you instead.

The premium Walkman® NWZ-ZX1 from Sony will be available at all Sony stores and authorised outlets from February 2014 onwards at a recommended retail price of S$899.
