The biggest electronics trade exhibition of Japan CEATEC concluded on 11 October 2014 at Makuhari Messe International convention complex in Chiba prefecture of Japan. CEATEC stands for Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies. The five-day exhibition had started on 7 October 2014.
The main highlight of the exhibition was the introduction of sign and display technology solutions by Japanese companies like Fujifilm which provides total solutions for wide-format print system.
The technology will come handy for the outdoor advertising industry in India and ASEAN region where the trend of outdoor advertising on billboards and POP is fast catching up.
The technology mainly uses graphics based on Ultra-Violet (UV) inks. UV inks are used because they remain protected in outdoor climate and do not evaporate, so the system can be installed in one room.
On the other hand, the harmful VOC - solvent based ink systems are used to the conventional wide-format printing machine, which required the separate forced exhaust facility.
CEATEC provides a platform for companies and organizations from all over the world to showcase their cutting-edge products, services and technologies. The event also serves as key industry networking and information-gathering opportunity, with numerous seminars and other activities offered during the fair.
