Some Themes from CES

January 20, 2009

Here are some of the themes and trends that I noticed at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show:

  • The increasing prevalence of UPnP and DLNA devices. For example, many WiFi digital photo frames are designed to connect to UPnP servers.
  • There were a fair number of small digital cameras that could take 1080p video and 5 megapixel stills. I can’t speak to the quality of these small devices…
  • There were number of exhibitors besides nVidia that featured nVidia’s 3D Stereo technology involving 3D glasses.
  • Most if not all of the major makers of LCD televisions had models that featured some type of compensation for motion blur. It was varyingly called “motionflow” “clearscan” and “trumotion".” I remember seeing this technology demoed a year or two ago by its maker at CES. It was interesting to see how widely it had been adopted.
  • There were many multitouch displays. I include both the HP display, Microsoft surface and phones with multitouch displays in this category. I credit the success of the iPhone for the popularity of this technology.
