Startups vied with biggies to showcase innovation at this year's CommunicAsia-BroadcastAsia expo

Singapore, June 8 2015: At CommunicAsia,   which ended last week ,  Dell launched its new Internet of Things Gateway. Gateways are small, wireless or connected devices that collect, help secure and process sensor data at the edge of a network.  Equipped with processing power, they provide customers with flexibility to perform analytics at the edge, reducing latency for data-based decisions, such as managing energy consumption or triggering a call for proactive equipment maintenance.

At BroadcastAsia, Samsung unveiled the world's first low temperature video wall, and Sony -- their new HXR-NX100 professional camcorder.

Handset makers Huawei, PHICOMM and RugGear also launched their flagships P8, P660 and GranTour Series -- RG730 respectively at CommunicAsia.

Over The Top (OTT) Television delivery was a hot topic. More than 110 exhibitors, including Accedo, Brightcove, Ericsson, Limelight Networks and Nice People At Work (NPAW), showcased how their solutions enable the delivery of TV everywhere.

Also playing a significant role in paving the way for Singapore becoming a 'Smart Nation' were  start-ups like CtrlWorks, Neeuro and Zap!

CtrlWorks showcased Axon, an intelligent robot powered by cloud robotics technology, easing manpower needs for areas such as logistics and hospitals. Unlike most purpose-built Autonomous Guided Vehicle platforms, Axon is a revolutionary add-on kit that transforms any wheeled platform into an intelligent mobile robot.

Neeuro pioneered an innovative EEG brainwave headgear that, when paired with Memorie - a mobile app with entertaining games suited for people of all ages, can train different aspects of the brain's cognitive functions through completion of specific tasks, and enable them to apply the attained skills to daily activities.

More than 48,000 attendees from 101 countries and regions, including visitors, exhibiting staff, conference speakers and delegates, and members of media, got to witness at CommunicAsia, EnterpriseIT and BroadcastAsia how technology could be harnessed to better connect cities, governments, enterprises and consumers.
