CES 2016

CES 2016

And I am back for a 6th year for CESĀ®.

Changes this year are in the naming. No longer referred to as the Consumer Electronics Show. It’s simplified to CESĀ®. I still have to tell people that are not tech-related that it’s consumer electronics show.

My focus this year is: USB-C devices, hubs, laptops and adapters, fitness devices, the VW BUDD-e electric concept van and other electric cars.

My regular stops are a visit to see new Canon cameras, Fitbit booth, the Cocoon backpack and Grid-IT booth and the Sony booth. And of course a visit to my favorite hotel/casino The Cosmopolitan for an open bar party (Bond Bar parties are no longer held – sad).

CES starts Wednesday, January 6th and goes through Saturday January 9th, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV at Las Vegas Convention Center and The Venetian. I am there the last 3 days this year.

CES 2015

CES 2011

It’s that time of the year again when the annual Consumer Electronics Show happens.

This is my fifth year back at CES.   This year, I will be covering just the first two days.

As with previous years, there will be a plethora of announced products like more 4K televisions, HD cameras, wearables like fitness trackers, digital media and much more.

CES starts Tuesday, January 6th and goes through Friday January 9th, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV at Las Vegas Convention Center and The Venetian.

CES 2014

CES 2011

For the fourth year in a row, I will be at CES.   This year, I will be covering just the first two days.

As with previous years, there will be a plethora of announced products like more 4K televisions, HD cameras, cell phones, digital media and much more.

CES starts Tuesday, January 7th and goes through Friday January 10th, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV at Las Vegas Convention Center and The Venetian.

CES 2013

CES 2011

For the third year in a row, I will be at CES.  But instead of only covering two days of the show, as I did the previous two years, I will be covering all 4 days.  I’ve not been to all 4 days in many years (back in the late 90’s when I was a newsletter/magazine publisher).

This should be an exciting show with all sorts of new products shown.  My coverage of the show in the last couple of years has been weak, but I’m hoping to step that up with more videos, more booth coverage and more product photos.

CES starts Tuesday, January 8th and goes through Friday January 11th, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV.

Attending NAB 2012

nab 2012

I am at NAB 2012 this year.

I had a scheduling conflict last year and was major bummed I couldn’t go. I am only at the show for 2 days so will try to see as much as I can here.

As an amateur filmmaker and short video creator, I’m sure a lot of what is here is going to be professional, but I want to see what I can look forward to as I expand my video production skills. One of the must see stops is Adobe Premiere CS6, a rival to Final Cut Pro. Also, the new Canon 4K cameras and any other video production coverage for this Final Cut user.

Speaking of Final Cut, I won’t be going to the Final Cut Supermeet as that is Tuesday night, so will have to catch up on how it was later in the week.

I will post later with a summary of my experience.

Going To CES 2012 in Las Vegas

CES 2011

It’s that time of the year and while I didn’t post much from the 2011 CES show, I am going back again this year to see what’s new and exciting in the world of consumer electronics.

Cameras and ultrabooks are my main focus this year and I hope to post at least a few updates here of what I find that I consider useful and cool.

The show is Tuesday Jan 10th thru Friday Jan 13th.  I will be attending the first 3 days, plus a few events at night.

CES 2011 – Day 2

More walking, more booths.  This was Day 2 at CES.

Panasonic was my first stop to see their video cameras.  After navigating through a sea of 3D TVs and 3D cameras, I found something that caught my eye.

Full HD video recording in a handheld device. But I wanted to see something in the professional line, specifically the AG-AF100. Alas, it wasn’t there.

But Canon did have their full line of professional cameras on display. And the XA10 caught more than just a glance.

Like the intro to the professional line, it comes in at under $2,000 and offers XLR mic plugs and a bevy of recording options.

I took other photos and videos that I will compile over on Banal Leakage for a summary post of the show.

Going to CES 2011 in Las Vegas

CES 2011

For the first time in 10 years, I will be going to CES in Las Vegas.  I first attended CES in 1992 during one of my publishing business ventures.  I last attended CES in 2001 and have missed being a part of the industry.  Now for 2011, I will be back on the show floor and scouring the latest and greatest of technology.

My main focus is video – cameras, lighting, production tools and opportunities.  I will be posting daily reports from the show on this site, as well as a recap of cool products – both video and otherwise – over on my personal blog, Banal Leakage.
