French pavilion Cabsat 2015

Business France to feature 20 firms at Cabsat

DUBAI, February 15, 2015

Business France, the national agency aiming to develop business, will present a total of 20 digital companies at the upcoming Cabsat 2015 in Dubai, UAE, the largest trade show in the Mena region for broadcasting, satellite and digital media.

For the 9th year, France will be attending Cabsat, which is running from March 10 to 12 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

The audiovisual sector in France is mainly driven by the development of digital technology that has led to radical changes both in industry and in the services development. The major event of recent years is the unexpected success of digital terrestrial television and the development of HD and UHD.

There was a sustained rate of growth in access to digital media. At the end of 2014, 97 per cent of French households had access to digital television (DTTV, satellite, ADSL or cable). 99 per cent of the households have a television set. 83 per cent of households are equipped with a HD Television. Seventy-seven per cent are going through DTTV and 39.5 per cent through a HD fiber or ADSL box.

Nearly 71 per cent of French households have taken advantage of that access and have gone fully digital. DTTV is slightly decreasing to 57.9 per cent). The reception of TV via ADSL also accounts for significant growth (40.7 per cent).

Cable television (8.4 per cent) remains an alternative for large cities, while satellite TV (25 per cent) is growing in areas where cable and DTTV are not present.

Three French households out of 10 watch television through at least 2 types of reception.

Many French companies have expressed a lively interest for the widened televisual offer brought about by the introduction of digital television. The number of paying channels has gone up to 136 and services available have significantly increased with the development of HD broadcasting with 6 new HD channels for DTTV.

The 20 innovative companies on the French Pavilion include Amp Visual,  Anyware Video, Ateme, Aviwest, Broadpeak, Dalet,  France Media Monde, Ina, Multicam Systems, Neotion, Ntsi, Proconsultant,  Rcs Europe, Solidanim, Thomson Broadcast, Tv5 Monde, Vectracom, Videlio, Winmedia and Worldcast Systems.
