When was the first Starpower EXPO?

The first Starpower EXPO occurred fifteen years ago in 1999. We were looking for a way to get our manufacturers to bring in future technology that was not yet available. In 2001, Mark Cuban came out to the Starpower EXPO to see the various HDTV sets (which was at the time just coming available). He helped promote the technology. He ended up spending most of Saturday speaking to people, meeting manufacturers and seeing extremely innovative electronics.

CES 2015: Sony

Sony’s newest 4K TV’s are Ultra-thin! The new Bravia x900 is a 4K UHD TV that is thinner than an iPhone 6:

Sony is announcing 11 4K BRAVIA LCD TV models across three series that offer a greater visual experience – through stunning clarity, a wide color gamut, high luminance, and high contrast – than ever before with the adoption of its own, innovative 4K Processor X1. Sony will be exhibiting the X9000C series, featuring a new “Floating Style” design concept that boasts the world’s thinnest build (approximately 4.9 mm at its thinnest point). Sony will also display its X9300C series, the world’s first TV sets that support Hi-Res audio, are equipped with Hi-Res compatible speakers, and boast Sony’s proprietary DSEE HXTM technology that upscales compressed audio from broadcast TV and other sources to near-Hi-Res levels.

Sony’s new products support the H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) video compression standards, which are 4K compatible and are being adopted by an increasing number of streaming and broadcasting services. The new line also features – for the first time – YouTubeTM’s newly developed VP9 format. With this addition, customers can enjoy viewing user-generated 4K content, such as videos shot with a 4K Action Cam and uploaded to YouTube, on their new BRAVIA TV sets.

 

Capture 4K for yourself:

 

The FDR-X1000V, the first 4K compatible Action Cam, will support high definition, high bitrate video recording at 4K/30p (100 Mbps). It comes equipped with advanced SteadyShot technology and is the first of its line to feature wind noise reduction. The new Action Cam makes capturing 4K footage as crisp, clear, and real as the moment itself.

 

Sony’s new FDR-AX33 4K Handycam camcorder is around 30% smaller and 20% lighter than the current model and is the first 4K Handycam to come equipped with Balanced Optical SteadyShot technology capable of suppressing blur during all modes of shooting, from wide-angle to telephoto. With this automatic image stabilization, high-resolution 4K video recording becomes easier for consumers than ever before.

 

High-Resolution Audio is here! Before the iPod there was the Walkman! Sony has brought it back with High-Resolution Audio support:

Sony offers superior listening experiences from inside the home to on-the-go with its diverse range of audio devices. Its new products allow users to play higher quality audio wirelessly over Bluetooth than ever before and to, through SongPal Link, simultaneously play music over multiple connected devices*6.

The NW-ZX2 Hi-Res compatible Walkman® is a new high-end model in the ZX series, following in the success of the Walkman® NW-ZX1 flagship model released in the fall of 2013. It takes the audio quality of the ZX1 to a higher level, featuring a new rigid chassis design to achieve an even higher-quality sound. The new model features up to 33 hours of Hi-Res playback (at 192 kHz/24 bit) and ultra high quality playback over a Bluetooth connection when the device is paired with Sony’s new MDR-1ABT Headphones.

Sony will continue to expand its Hi-Res compatible lineup of products for the home, including the SRS-X99 and SRS-X88 Wireless Speakers, the HT-ST9, HT-NT3, and HT-XT3 Home Theater Systems, and the STR-DN1060 and STR-DN860 Multi-Channel Integrated Amplifier. These will all support wireless operation via SongPal Link, thereby enabling simultaneous playback through multiple connected devices, as well as playback of multiple songs on devices throughout separate rooms. Finally, Sony is also exhibiting a prototype Hi-Res car audio player during CES.

 

Sony’s latest innovation: Life Space UX

At the 2014 International CES, Sony introduced its new Life Space UX concept, reimagining how to experience and make the most of living spaces. Sony is moving forward with the commercialization of a number of Life Space UX prototypes, following the line’s inaugural product – the 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector. This projector, when placed at the foot of a wall, transforms the entire wall into a life-size window into another world with an expansive 147 inch image that boasts four times the clarity of Full HD. It was released in the United States in September of last year.

A number of other innovative Life Space UX products will be brought to market this year, including the LED Bulb Speaker – a bulb-shaped speaker that doubles as a functional light bulb. It blends right into any living space and enlivens it with music via a wireless connection. Also planned for release is the Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector, a compact cube-shaped projector measuring approximately 10 cm per side. It is capable of throwing up to a 50 inch image, allowing the user to watch a movie wherever the unit is set up, whether on the kitchen table or by the bathtub. Finally, Sony will be exhibiting, for the first time, three models of its Symphonic Light, yet another type of audio-emitting light fixture that can fill a room with crystal clear sound. With these and other unique products, Sony will continue to create and offer rich new modes of living through its expanding vision for Life Space UX.

CES 2015: Preview

CES 2015: The Global Stage for Innovation

CES 2015 is here! The show floor officially opens tomorrow and we are extremely excited to see the newest products and innovations. We will have hands-on impressions, previews, new product announcements, and the latest concepts from the biggest tech companies in the world. What can you expect to see from the world’s most dynamic tech show?

 

Internet of Things

The most exciting and unique innovation we will see at CES 2015 is the Internet of Things (IoT). Simply put, the Internet of Things is making it possible to connect anything and everything to the Internet.

Imagine a cap on a medicine bottle. The cap is fitted with a sensor which tracks the amount of times the bottle has been opened and when it was opened. The cap would collect this data and connect to an app on a phone or TV. The app could alert you if you need to take medication or if you have already taken it. No more need to worry whether elderly parents or grandparents are taking their medication. This is just a fraction of the possibilities to be unleashed from the Internet of Things.

At CES 2014, there were household appliances, cookware, clothing, even toothbrushes designed to connect via sensors with portable, networked devices like PCs and smartphones. Current examples include smart thermostat systems and washer/dryers that utilize wifi for remote monitoring.

As sensors become cheaper and more commonplace, there will be more and more everyday “things,” from light bulbs to city buses, harnessing the power of the network to provide more utility than ever could have been possible in isolation.

Interactive 4K – Bigger TVs

4K UHD will finally land in 2015! All of the pieces have fallen into place. 4K TVs and projectors are more affordable than their initial launch. Google, Verizon and AT&T are introducing gigabit services in order for consumers to properly stream 4K content. Streaming media services like Netflix and Amazon are bringing 4K content to 4K TVs and projectors.

More than 25 companies will exhibit 4K UHD-related products at the 2015 CES including DISH, Samsung, and Sony. Expect newer lines of 4K TV, interfaces with easier access to online video apps and 4K TVs at every price point. A big announcement is DISH has confirmed they will incorporate 4K streaming into their new line of receivers.

We expect larger 4K screens which will allow consumers to view more content than ever before. Bigger screens allow for multiple uses such as watching a TV show while displaying a security camera window or baby cam in the corner of your screen.

 

Wearables

Wearables will be everywhere! Ever since Apple revealed the AppleWatch last year, hype for wearable technology is at an all-time high. There have been a vast collection of android watches released last year with the potential to bring everything from home connectivity to fitness tracking to a whole new level. With improvements in sensor technology, consumers can better monitor their daily activity and create smarter fitness goals. Collaborations among sensors, low energy Bluetooth, cloud computing, 3D printing, flexible membranes can allow access to almost everything all at the touch of a wearable device. Don’t expect wearables for just yourself but for pets too. Check out the Tagg GPS Pet Tracker. We expect to see big announcements from Everbrilliant Enterprise Limited, EZIO and even L’Oreal!

 

High-Resolution Audio

High-Res Audio is changing the way we hear music just as HDTV revolutionized the way we see picture quality. This new audio technology emits audio signals with bandwidth and dynamic range greater than CD quality. Streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora compress audio into MP3s. Streaming MP3 quality music to a new speaker system isn’t doing it justice. New services like Deezer and Neil Young’s Pono service are looking to change that.

 

Home Automation

The movement to create a smarter and more efficient home increases daily, accelerated by the smartphones and tablets interacting with the myriad of connected objects and devices. At CEDIA, we had the chance to see the direction home automation was moving. Access to multiple locations, customizable scenes and tracking was a key component in the future of home automation. We are excited to see announcements from URC/Total Control and Honeywell. The future of home automation is all about giving homeowners more convenience and more comfort: from basic security monitoring or more customized access to appliances, lighting, window coverings, irrigation, entertainment systems and more.
