Was There Anything at #CES2016 For You?

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Even with more than 170,000 people in attendance this year (including more than 50,000 from outside the U.S.) and 3,800 exhibitors (this includes the 500 startup companies in the Eureka Park Marketplace, up from 375 last year), CES (formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show) is definitely NOT for everyone. It’s still very much an electronics and technology trade show and anyone who braves the crowds – exhibitors and attendees respectively needs to fight for attention and search VERY hard for something applicable / of interest to them.

Well, we walked the floor (according to our Pacer App we averaged 20,000+ steps a day during each day of the show) to bring anyone interested in OOH, DOOH and any type of digital signage the ten things that were worth seeing.

In no particular order, here they are: –

Samsung Transparent Display

CES2016 - Samsung Transparent Display

Panasonic’s Space Player

Panasonic’s Smart Show Window

In addition High Dynamic Range (HDR) will have a colourful impact on our world. LG had some great examples on show but one really needed to see a side-by-side demo of HDR on next to HDR off and that for us was kindly provided by AMD in their private booth (once again, proving to us the value of the private suite where, with no crowds, we had plenty of time to discuss High Dynamic Range with an expert) also demonstrated on a lovely LG LCD display.

    #CES2016 Another year another disappointment.

    Still no ability to build and brand our own TV sets.

    Still no ability to build and deploy HTML-PIP apps and services that embed the PIP into surrounding content my software service would generate.

    The design engineers working for Samsung et al are having all the fun
