Theme of the event

Bridge for digital innovation

As opposed to trade shows where eye-catching booths and new products showcased there are spotlighted, the stars at Digital Content Expo are seeds technologies and proto-type systems which are still on R&D stages and not commercialized yet.
Not a small number of new technologies born in colleges or research institutions banishes before they are commercialized. The phenomenon is often called as ”a death valley.” In order to avoid falling into the death valley, a bridge is needed which can be crossed by people on the both banks frequently and make the people exchange each other.
Digital Content Expo is a place where cutting-edge technologies in the world gather together; researchers, companies and creators think about potential of those technologies from their own standpoints; and innovations are presented to society, playing a role of a bridge over the death valley.
