The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) has attracted a number of new members since the beginning of 2021, including Amobee, Dolby, Integral Ad Science, iWedia, KC Global Media, Mediacorp and Vuulr; and in late 2020, it recruited Akamai and Vidio.
The association announced that it is considering organising physical events that will bring people together safely. One such possibility is the organisation of meals in Singapore for eight people at a time, the maximum currently allowed by the government.
AVIA will also be organising an AVIA Tech Series focussing on how technology is shaping the development of the video industry. It further announced the release of a matrix wallchart that provides summarised details of pay-TV policies across Asia.
Evolved from CASBAA in 2018, AVIA interacts with governments across the region on behalf of its members, leads the fight against video piracy and provides insight into the video industry through reports and conferences aimed at building a vibrant video industry.
