At CE Week New York: Connecting, Buying and Sharing CE Industry Insight
In its 13th year (and the second in partnership with Messe Berlin and the IFA team), CE Week New York again served the CE industry and the US retailers as a valuable gathering point, an opportunity to network and a chance to get first-hand information on urgent topics which will influence the business in future.
For one example, an industry panel discussed the advantages and selling arguments of 8K TV, with top executives from Samsung (VP Andrew Sivori), LG (Sr Director Tim Alessi), Sony (Chief Engineer Toshi Ogura), Sharp (President Jim Sanduski), Value Electronics(President Robert Zohn), and moderator from Digital Trends (Jeremy Kaplan, editor in chief).
The panel’s conclusion is clear: not only will the 4X higher pixel count be a good sales argument but also the enormous developments in display technology and electronic components necessary for the new standard will bring visible advantages in picture quality, better color gamut and also stunning new audio potential to the market.
