New developments in equipment, technologies and services for the audiovisual market, telecommunications, broadcasting and electronic media in general can be seen at the 2019 SET EXPO Trade Show, which runs from August 26 thru 29 at the Red Pavilion and Expo Center Norte Convention Center.

In all, there will be 150 Brazilian and international companies showcasing more than 400 brands, presenting most recent developments in the market for sound capture, imaging, transmission and operations employed throughout the entire audiovisual production chain.
“The SET EXPO Products and Services Trade Show brings together the leading representatives of the electronic media industry. During SET EXPO, the leading brands introduce to the Brazilian market their product launches, while users have the opportunity to get familiar with the new technologies and to try out these new developments.” Within this environment of innovation, the major investments in the market come together at SET EXPO, which is the most important business hub of this industry” says Cláudio Younis, vice president of SET.
As was the case in earlier editions, the Japanese Pavilion will allocate space for demonstrating all leading-edge equipment developed in that Asian country and which are unknown in these parts.
Many companies will have hands-on actions where attendees can get close-ups and try out the functionalities of the products there and then. One of these is Canon, which will showcase its range of cinema cameras and lenses, broadcast lenses and professional video cameras that enable images to be shown immediately as they are being shot. Fujifilm has chosen the SET EXPO Trade Show for a first-time presentation in Brazil of the Premista 28-100 T/2.9 range of cinema lenses dedicated to cinematographic full frame.

In its TV range, the newcomers are low-cost Doherty Digital TV transmitters from the UBX range, costing 30% less than the previous version. “We have improved the production cost of this solution to respond to broadcasters that did not do the switch-off”, she concluded.
