CES – wrap up

by Tim Jackson VP, Media and Distribution Platform Sales ATEME North America

Tim Jackson, VP, Media and Distribution Platform SalesATEME’s first Consumer Electronics Show comes to an end today and it was an amazing success for all of us. Many customers and partners took time from their busy schedules to visit our demonstration suite a few blocks south of the Las Vegas Convention Center. It was great to have our Advanced Research Manager, Jérome Vieron, here from France to showcase theinteroperability of HEVC with consumer electronics manufacturers like Broadcom,Toshiba and LG, and to explain our latest developments to customers.

As I’ve been reporting all week, technology evolution is everywhere. Nowhere is it more prevalent than in the media and entertainment sector. The combination of new and exciting 4K television sets combined with more advanced digital devices such as newer tablets and wearable technology continue to offer consumers unlimited choices for watching compelling video content. From in-seat viewing on airlines at the Panasonic booth to an extremely large-screen display showing football at Sony, the ubiquity of media never ceases to amaze me.
The most exciting thing for me is how CES connects what we do every day to the consumer – in seeing how our products and services enable and drive utilization and expansion of different devices, making television truly available everywhere.
As we visit with customers and partners at other industry trade shows throughout the year we will think back to CES and all the downstream capabilities available to consumers.

We wish all of you a successful 2014 and hope to see you at different events around the world!
