NHK Exec to Keynote Broadcast Engineering Conference
Hirokazu Nishiyama, managing director of Japanese public broadcaster NHK, will keynote the 61st annual Broadcast Engineering Conference at NAB2007 in Las Vegas, April 15. The conference provides a forum for engineers to discuss technology's impact on future trends in the broadcast industry.

Nishiyama's address will focus on new broadcast services like mobile, HDTV, IPTV, and VOD and the opportunities these advanced services create for broadcasters. He also plans to discuss the various applications that make Ultra-HDTV--which was demonstrated at NAB2006--a promising technology for the future.

Nishiyama currently oversees all engineering activities and supervises the Engineering Administration Department and the Science & Technical Research Laboratories. Previously, he served as associate director of the Engineering Administration Department, where he was responsible for developing broadcasting equipment for HDTV; and as executive deputy president of NHK Enterprises America Inc., where he played a major role in production of HD programs in the United States.
