Visiting a Technology Trade Show

The weekend of January 7-10 was a gadget freak’s dream. All the technophiles who could headed to the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas prepared to oooh, aaah, gasp and covet.  CES is the world’s largest consumer technology trade show.  It features 2,700 exhibitors, including companies who  are (as the ad says)  “involved in the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and integration of audio, video, mobile electronics, wireless and landline communications, information technology, home networking, multimedia and accessory products.” Oh my!

It was natural then that Tom Young, our general manager, and Mike Fugate, who heads up Kingdom Technology, hopped a plane to Las Vegas. The annual show is an event  representatives from Kingdom have attended for several years, finding it an invaluable preview to emerging technologies in electronics. This year they were particularly interested in getting information on Over-the-Top technology (OTT). To put it as simply as possible, OTT is video on demand, streaming content when the consumer wishes rather than live programming. It is a vehicle for web video and tv convergence, and set-top boxes with names like Popbox and Boxy will be available to the general public later this year. Of course there were many other clever – and shiny – innovations to enjoy. See more of them in the cnet.com coverage of CES 2010 at http://ces.cnet.com/.
