Despite the best efforts of Mother Nature to keep me from Las Vegas, I managed to escape the harsh Chicago weather and arrived for CES early Monday morning. I’m always very excited about this show – people frequently refer to it as the world’s biggest toy store for adults!
Already there is a lot of excitement about the 4K/Ultra HD sets, particularly the curved 4K sets that Samsung showcased today at their press conference. In addition to 4K/UHD much of the show buzz surrounds mobility and wearable technology. I’m always interested in seeing if the wearable tech (it’s been making appearances at CES for a few years now) has any practicality to it or if it’s still a gimmick. Being an automotive aficionado, I’m also excited to see what the car manufacturers are showing for media integration. Ford, Audi and BMW all have interesting things to see at the show and I’m looking forward to visiting them.
The ATEME team spent Monday setting up our demonstration room at the Embassy Suites and we’re looking forward to seeing customers as well as the show floor beginning Tuesday.
It promises to be an exciting show!
