U.S. Members of IEC Exhibit at World's Largest Electronic Media Trade Show

International Standards Showcased for Audio, Video, Multimedia

New York, Apr 02, 2002

Members of the U.S. National Committee of the International Electrotechnical Commission (USNC/IEC) will be participating with their colleagues from the IEC committee on electronic media communications at the National Association for Broadcasters 2002 Trade Show (NAB2002) in Las Vegas from April 6 to 11. This is the latest step in an ongoing initiative to increase USNC outreach efforts and attract a broad and diverse constituency to the electrotechnical standardization community.

Located in booth L12839, senior representatives of IEC Technical Committee (TC) 100, Audio, video and multimedia systems and equipment, along with leaders and staff of the USNC, will join more than 1,400 vendors at the world's leading conference and exhibition for the converging electronic media communications industries. The IEC is an international standards and conformity assessment body for all fields of electrotechnology in which the U.S. participates via ANSI's USNC; IEC TC 100 develops International Standards in audio, video and multimedia technologies that support the worldwide sale of products.

Kevin Sullivan, ANSI program administrator for standards facilitation and USNC liaison attending the meeting, said "The opportunity to converse with such a wide range of representatives from around the globe - and who represent such a broad spectrum of interests from all segments of converging electronic media - is an extraordinary opportunity for the IEC and the USNC. We look forward to discussing with the trade show attendees how this fast-paced industry is becoming standardized internationally."

Produced annually by NAB, an ANSI membership organization, NAB2002 features the most comprehensive array of digital communications technologies including every element of television and radio broadcasting, film/video production and post production, audio production, multimedia, the Internet, satellite and telecommunications as well as educational forums and networking events. The exhibition will provide a unique venue for the IEC committee to showcase its work as well as for the USNC/IEC to unveil its new mission statement that demonstrates a commitment to participating more effectively in the development of IEC standards to the benefit of U.S. interests.

Trade show attendees will include content delivery and development professionals in all facets of audio, video and multimedia technologies as well as representatives from advertising agencies, telecommunications companies, broadcast equipment manufacturers and distributors, consulting firms and government organizations.
