Impressive innovations at Mediatech Africa


With over 70% of exhibition stands already sold, anticipation for the 2013 edition of the biennial Mediatech Africa advanced technology trade show is building among media and entertainment professionals. Mediatech Africa takes place from 17 to 19 July at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg.

Among the list of confirmed exhibitors representing a large variety of brands in the film, broadcast, production and AV sectors are Inala Broadcast, Concilium Technologies, Jaycor International, Touchvision, Telemedia, Learn 3D, Media Cloud, Movievision, Questek Advanced Technologies, Macro Video, Viva Africa Sound and Lighting, Extron, Technology Innovated Distribution, DWR Distribution, AV Systems, Audiosure, Sound Harmonics and Matrix Sound.

2013 has brought about a growing international interest in Mediatech Africa and the attendance of a number of international manufacturers is expected. Steve Alves from Concilium Technologies has announced an international presence from Harris Broadcast and Ross Video and is excited to be an exhibitor at the interactive hub again this year.

Says Alves: “We found the Mediatech 2011 show to be one of the best yet, and were able to engage productively with all of the broadcasters and production facilities during the three days of the show, while cementing new relationships as well.’

Visitors to Mediatech Africa can look forward to an engaging experience with even more product and brand specific demo rooms to explore, and an outdoor demo area that now accommodates a common stage where more brands will showcase their systems. There are also some familiar highlights to look forward to in the form of workshops and international speakers taking to the stage to deliver the latest in technological trends and cutting edge industry developments.

The long-running Screen Africa Technology and Production Conference, which takes place on 18 July, will be presented by top industry professionals, teaching delegates how to get optimal use of technology and allowing them to inject even more creative content into their productions.

Mediatech Africa 2013 opens its doors every morning from 10h00 to 18h00 and will transform The Coca-Cola Dome into a technological playground for creative minds and forward thinkers in the industry.
