CES Preview: 3D and Connected TV To Take Centre Stage

by User Not Found | Jan 04, 2010

Strategy Analytics will as usual have a strong complement of analysts and representatives in Las Vegas this week for the annual Consumer Electronics Show. Our diaries are full with meetings and events, and possibly the odd party, so we hope to get around to seeing all the major players, and a fair number of smaller ones as well. In terms of hot themes, in the TV space 3D and connectivity will be the main items getting our attention. What will be interesting is to see how companies are planning, if indeed they are, to combine these two emerging capabilities into the same device. They are quite distinct applications, with their own sets of technology and content challenges. By the end of this year, if all goes according to plan, a high end TV will be both 3D- and internet-ready. That could involve a complex set of messages which will need careful explaning to end customers on the retail floor. As I mentioned previously, wireless HD technologies are also likely to feature strongly. We expect major announcements on support for the competing standards from all the major TV vendors. We’ll be aiming to bring regular updates from CES as the show progresses. In the meantime we welcome any questions and comments from clients on specific areas of interest regarding the event.
