The present and future of the digital media industry were laid out at a special event, Digital Media Festival 2013. 

Held on December 5 and 6 at Bitmaru in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do (Gyeonggi Province), the festival invited domestic companies to show off their advanced and innovative technologies in sectors such as broadcasting, communications (mobile, applications and the Internet), digital content and entertainment (movies, games and animations). 


A variety of state-of-the-art digital equipment was introduced all throughout the festival, ranging from newly developed receiving antennae for digital TVs and intercom devices that enable instantaneous communication at event sites, to digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and LED lighting equipment. 


There were also special eye-catchers, especially to young visitors and families, including games designed for a smart TV that can be played with a mobile phone as a controller and various applications specially designed for playing games and childcare assistance. 

Other sideline events, too, helped signalize the digital tech-focused intention of the festival, such as a conference aimed at attracting both domestic and overseas potential buyers and a special showcase of artwork and digital content that could be appreciated through digital devices.

The hosting venue Bitmaru opened its doors on December 6. The complex, co-constructed by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) and the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP), is armed with a one-stop service system for broadcast content from planning and producing all the way through transmitting and distributing. 

The 20-story building features studios, editing rooms and transmitting spaces, all based on networking and cloud computing systems, and is expected to serve as a hub for production and dissemination of global broadcasting content.
