Mainland China's largest systems design event set to attract thousands of consumer electronics and personal computer design engineers and product planners in South China
The HDMI specification is the global standard for next-generation digital interface connectivity for consumer electronics products and the Conference is expected to attract a large number of engineers to IIC-China - the mainland's most important systems design event.
The one-day Conference aims to provide in-depth technical "How-To's" and best practices for implementing the recently released HDMI Specification Version 1.4 features in upcoming product lines. Executives and technical professionals from semiconductor manufacturer RedMere, HDMI Founder Silicon Image, and leading suppliers of test, measurement, and monitoring products Quantum Data and Tektronix, are scheduled to give presentations and technical sessions. IIC-China will also host exhibition booths that showcase technologies from HDMI Adopters, Sure-Fire and Synopsys in Dongguan.
Steve Venuti, President of HDMI Licensing, LLC, said: "The HDMI standard is the global standard for HD connectivity -- more than 394 million HDMI-enabled devices are expected to be shipped in 2009.
"And among the 850-plus HDMI Adopters worldwide, more than one quarter of them are headquartered in Greater China. We have long recognized the strength of Greater China's manufacturing and design as well as the tremendous market opportunity within Greater China. Our Developer Conference at IIC-China enables us to better address Greater China's large and innovative manufacturing capabilities."
Mark A. Saunderson, President of Global Sources Electronics Business Unit, said: "We are delighted to have HDMI Licensing, LLC join us in Dongguan for the co-located Conference.
"With HDMI becoming one of the most popular technology standards for consumer electronics and personal computers, HDMI's educational Conference is set to be a must-attend event for design engineers and product planners working in Dongguan and its surrounding cities like Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Huizhou, Foshan, Shunde and Zhongshan. We are prepared to welcome thousands of visitors at the inaugural show in Dongguan."
The HDMI Developers Conference is scheduled to run through 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 18 in Conference Room One, GD Modern International Exhibition Center.
