Ahead of CES 2018 next week, RCA announced its first foray into the smart home market with a WiFi-enabled Doorbell Camera and Security Camera System.
Every year at VOXX International's press conference, the company introduces a slew of new products from its many lines. This year is no different: We sat through 45 minutes of product announcements from the lifestyle brand, whose lines include 808 Audio, Acoustic Research, and RCA.
In the run-up to the 40th anniversary of the Consumer Electronics Show in 2007, the late Jack Wayman, CES founder, who passed away last week at 92, offered – with characteristic candor – his reflections on the Show and his part in its creation to Dealerscope’s Nancy Klosek. Here are his comments:
Industry legend and longtime CEA executive Jack Wayman passed away over the holiday weekend, and since his death tributes have been rolling in from all over the industry. Our readers are welcome to share their tributes to Wayman in the comments to this post.
The industry’s accolades continue to pile on for Cowboy Maloney’s Electric City, a Jackson, Miss.-based 12-store family-run regional chain that was started in 1952 as a lumberyard by Con Maloney—one of this year’s CEA Hall of Fame honorees. The business is currently run by his sons, Con, Eddie and Johnny, from a Jackson facility that is a combination office, warehouse and showroom.
The RCA brand has roots in television as an innovator in color TV, VCR, DVD, the exclusive and first DirecTV receiver box, and as the first in omni-directional flat digital antennas.
So, you’ve got your Apple TV—you subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, NHL GameCenter and whatnot—but you can’t still bring yourself to cut the cable because of the channels and first run shows you’ll miss? The newly available RCA Ultra-Thin HDTV Indoor Antenna may make the decision a little bit easier for you. With it, you can receive free local news, sports, weather and some of your favorite shows in UHF and VHF frequencies in up to 1080i.
Mississippi retailer Cowboy Maloney’s Electric City, which sold the first-ever digital satellite TV system in June of 1994, will mark the 20th anniversary of the occasion next month.
