It’s very exciting to have so many customers coming by our demo suite at CES. Everyone is very interested in seeing ourinteroperability with the 4K television sets. We’re showing video transcoded using TITAN File at 15 Mbit/s HEVC that looks absolutely fantastic on the 85 inch LG 4K display – it’s like looking out a window!
Between customer meetings, it’s back to the show floor to explore more of the consumer technology. Aside from 4K and ultra-HD, which we’ve talked a lot about this week, other prominent categories generating a lot of attention are wearable technology and connected home technology. I never realized how dumb my home really was until I saw some of these demonstrations! It seems that everything within the home can be monitored and controlled remotely. Health and fitness is an area where wearable technology is really evolving, with clothing and bracelets that can monitor heart rate, temperature, running or walking pace, and even your sleep quality!
Once again, I found myself really enjoying some of the robotic technology. The Jumping Sumo robotic toy by Parrot can jump 2.5 feet in the air and still land on its wheels. I want one!
Time to head back to our booth for more customer meetings. We’ll have our final report from CES tomorrow!
