Technologies to Watch
Media servers, portable entertainment, hybrid white goods, innovative gaming and telematics are the technologies to watch, according to the annual Five Technologies to Watch report issued by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). Each year, the publication explores five technology trends poised to shape the consumer electronics industry in the year ahead.
"Based on this report, it is clear that content is beginning to drive the creation of new devices and that the continued adoption of broadband will allow product innovation to soar," explains Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA. "These five technologies are slated to bring value to consumers' lives and have the greatest impact on our industry in the months to come."
Geared toward industry professionals, Five Technologies to Watch provides a comprehensive analysis of all five trends and their impact on the consumer electronics market. Each of the five technology sections details the strategic issues, market forecasts, consumer perspectives, key players, partnerships, business models, and public policy challenges for that technology.
