International CES Unveils Technology for Meetings and Events


The International CES is still going on in Las Vegas, and several new products have been announced over the past few days that meetings and event planners will want to consider for their businesses. 

AutoWeek noted the 110-inch, ultra-high-definition TV screen with 4,000 pixels per square inch from Samsung—we predict that several trade shows will be using this screen soon to promote their products.

Meanwhile, SMK Electronics Corporation partnered with CSR plc to develop a range of Bluetooth Smart-enabled advanced remote controls. These devices incorporate advanced capabilities including pointing gesture recognition, low-latency voice command and device-to-remote "back channel" communications. Additionally, SMK's Smart-enabled remotes are up to six times more energy efficient than models using earlier Bluetooth technology.

CNET has a list of top products launched at CES, like Fulton Innovation's device-to-device charging gadget that lets users charge their computer from their cell phone (and vice versa) and could become ubiquitous in hotel rooms and meeting venues (to the great relief of travelers who forget cords and cables at home). Vizio's 5.1 sound bar and wireless speaker combo would be a great pick for event spaces: Just move the speakers to wherever they need to be in the room. 

Another device that should become ubiquitous in boardrooms is Seagate's Wireless Plus, a mobile wireless storage expander/media-streaming server for mobile devices. Essentially, the device is a 1TB  portable bus-powered drive that allows up to eight Wi-Fi devices to connect to its Wi-Fi network and then use its internal storage as their networked storage expander. The biggest feature of the Wireless Plus, however, is that you can stream digital content that it stores to all connected devices, making it a great companion for a tablet or a smartphone, with 10 hours of continuous battery life. Businesspeople can use the Wireless Plus to connect to an existing Internet Wi-Fi network and then share that Internet connection to the Wi-Fi devices connected to it, and watch presentations instantly on their own devices.
