Hitachi Kokusai Electric Turkey Celebrates First Anniversary


In June, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Turkey (HKT) will celebrate its first anniversary and boy, what a busy year it has been for Cemal Yilmaz and his talented team of broadcast engineers and support staff. Headquartered in the Tuzla free trade zone near Istanbul, HKT’s mission is to expand Hitachi’s broadcast equipment and system business with a global market perspective and an especially keen focus on the Middle East, Africa, Russia and CIS regions.

With access to all the market leading technology available today, the HKT team are actively helping customers design, build and integrate the widest range of broadcast infrastructure from the smallest DSNG vehicle to OB trucks, studio complexes through to satellite and terrestrial transmission networks. Already, the company has scored and delivered a number of customer successes – we will tell you more about these in the coming weeks and months.


For now, please put Hitachi Kokusai Electric Turkey on your radar screens. We will be exhibiting at the major global tradeshows and speaking at the key conferences, starting with iTVF in Istanbul in a couple of week’s time where we will participate in both the conference and exhibition. And at the same time at Broadcast Asia in Singapore, where we will showcase an OB truck which was designed and built by HKT on stand 1U4-07 (Level 1) together with a major showcase of the latest advances in Hitachi broadcast camera technology on stand 5A5-01 (Level 5). And we will be looking to work with the key broadcast publications to help raise our profile. So, if you have any forthcoming editorial features that you think are relevant to us, or any other ideas for how we can work together please let us know. Our focus is global and we will need your help to publicise this great story.
