South Africa - Mediatech Africa, the largest media and entertainment technology trade show for southern Africa, will be staged this year from 15-17 July at the Dome at Northgate, Johannesburg. Staged biennially, Mediatech Africa presents the latest technologies and trends to southern Africa's broadcast and film sector and rapidly-growing live event and AV systems integration industries.

The exhibition area will feature over 130 exhibitors including manufacturers and distributors, and over around 700 brands, while the conference running alongside will cover the latest trends in AV and broadcasting.

Mediatech allows thousands of decision-makers in these key industries to discover new trends, solutions and service providers and assess top technologies from manufacturers and distributors locally and around the world. Visitors also benefit from the environment that includes hands-on testing, live demos and product shoot-outs, a conference and extensive networking opportunities.

Highlights of the event will include two presentation zones featuring high-level talks, demos and workshops focusing on the two main verticals - Broadcast, Film, Production, Post Production, Animation & New Media, and AV System Integration, Live Event Technology, Studio and Recording and Pro DJ.

Additionally, the outdoor Mediatech Sound Demos will provide a unique opportunity for AV professionals and end users to assess the quality and output of small, medium and large format speakers. Speakers meeting the needs of organisations scaled from churches and educational institutions through to major event and concert companies will be assessed here.

Mediatech will also see the finals of the Lighting Designer Contest hosted by Electrosonic SA, Martin Professional Denmark and Lighthouse Holland.
