Preferred Platform for Product Launches and Showcases
The CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014 media briefing kicked off with Sennheiser Electronic Asia and Panasonic Toughbook giving live demonstrations of their game-changing products that will serve as key enablers for businesses in an increasingly mobile world.
Sennheiser Asia joins CommunicAsia2014 as an exhibitor for the first time this year, with the introduction of their new line of solutions for the Audio for Business segment. Some of these systems include the Team Connect, an all-in-one audio solution for meeting rooms, incorporating the rising trend of "Bring Your Own Device" with excellent audio intelligibility, into the boardrooms and business meeting spaces.
"The rationale for our inaugural participation at CommunicAsia2014 this year was clear: This is one of the best platforms we can identify in the region that attracts the target audience we want to reach out to. We believe that our presence in this exhibition will grow our business opportunities in the Enterprise industry, particularly in the Audio for Business segment. We are looking forward to a successful show this year," said Mr. Ng Chee Soon, President and Managing Director of Sennheiser Asia.
Panasonic Toughbook gave an exclusive preview and demonstration of the Panasonic TOUGHPAD UT-MB5, the world's first 4K 20" tablet. The tablet operates on Windows 8.1 and will be soft launched for the first time in Asia at CommunicAsia2014.
"CommunicAsia2014 is the obvious choice of a launch platform in Asia for our latest TOUGHPAD. Over the past two years that we have been participating, this excellent platform allows us to meet and network with many customers and partners from across the region," says Mr. Jun Matsuo, Director of Panasonic Systems Communication Asia Pacific. "We are excited and look forward to showcasing our latest range of products at the show."
Joining Sennheiser Electronic Asia and Panasonic Toughbook at CommunicAsia2014 to showcase major technology breakthroughs and launch their latest innovations in mobility and connectivity include:
-- BioSenze Life Science / Shopster: To be launched for the first time worldwide, BioSenze's self-administered diagnostic kits provide accurate readings for common health tests utilising the patient's blood, urine or saliva samples. These metered readings are transmitted to cloud servers via the patient's smartphone and the patient's health dashboard is reflected in the mobile application that is available on multiple platforms. This reduces the cost and time required for conducting these diagnostic tests and at the same time, improves the efficiency in doctor-patient consultation
-- Huawei: The Huawei Ascend P7 Android smartphone will be launched, for the first time in Asia, at CommunicAsia2014. The smartphone, a combination of technology, design and performance, features an 8 MP camera and is set to open doors to a more connected world
