The Asia Television Forum is gearing up for its 11th edition Dec. 8-10 in Singapore with the theme “Above and Beyond.”

Organizers of the event say the market for Asian TV content is growing and this year’s event will feature a record number of pavilions at 13, featuring new entries from China, Finland and Japan. Organizers also forecast a 14 percent increase in the number of seller companies and 18 percent for buyers.

New programs will be launched at ATF 2010 by international and regional companies, an indication of the significance of the market on the global platform. Companies including Australian Broadcasting Corp., IMC Vision, Telemundo Internacional, Zee Entertainment Enterprises and Zodiak Rights will be presenting new offerings at the market.

ATF 2010 will be co-located alongside the Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention and the two will overlap on Dec. 10. In conjunction with this co-location, the ATF conference will feature an animation panel and Superpitch, as well as a licensing panel. The animation conference track will focus on developments, trends, processes and financing of animation projects, while the licensing panel will provide insight into the important details and challenges of licensing in the industry.

Other conference sessions include a 3D TV Seminar, which will explore the impact of 3D technology; and a music panel that will discuss cross platform distribution of content and its impact on the music business.
