The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) will hold the 53rd International Broadcasting Equipment Exhibition (Inter BEE 2017), in Tokyo, from November 15 to 17.

Based on the concept of “Society 5.0 (the vision of a super intelligent society)”, the purpose of Inter BEE is to be a multimedia event with the emphasis on content: production, transmission and reception.

The trade show will occupy all the pavilions at the Makuhari Messe convention center, totaling 54,000 m2 organized into four categories: “Professional Audio”, “Professional Video/Lighting”, “Video Production /Transmission” and “ICT/Cross-Media”. According to the organizers, “this is the largest exhibition held so far”.

 4k and 8k

Japanese broadcasters will introduce the preparations for 4K and 8K transmissions in December 2018, as well as the most recent technologies for the production, compression, transmission and display of sound and video, such as HDR and HFR.

IP, cloud, internet and 5G

In the quest for markets that aim to use IP technology, Inter BEE is also highlighting the increase in the number of IT companies at the event. There will also be companies promoting content delivery networks (CDN) for the first time.


There will be a series of sessions that will analyze different uses of Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially in the production of TV programs and support for new services, like disaster reports and creative mergers. In addition, the advances in the production of 360-degree images, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will be shown, as well as their uses in sporting transmissions and live music.
