As this years CES winds down, a few reflections on what I saw:
- Pico projectors are becoming very, very interesting. I had the pleasure of seeing a 1080p projector, smartphone-form-factor. To see an an image projected at 1080p resolution out of a projector capable of fitting into a smartphone–it was something
- 4K TV’s are all rage. I can assure you that those among us who have recently purchased an HDTV and saw these new 4K sets are feeling a bit of buyers remorse today. It will be some time before they are price-accessible to most, and perhaps even longer for the logistics of 4K to become real (meaning things like content availability, bandwidth from cable and satellite providers, and even things like cabling from set-top boxes to the televisions), but still, WOW!
- For all the articles and hoopla about Microsoft, Dell, and HP having much less of a presence than normal, and Apple never being here, you wouldn’t know it from attendance and excitement. There are so many companies doing truly innovate things that most attendees probably didn’t notice.
And finally, for QuickLogic, I can say that it was a very good show–perhaps one of the best ever. We had a number of very good meetings with customers, partners and investors (no names can be shared, sorry), and had number of unexpected but welcomed visitors in our demo suite. For those that are still here in Las Vegas, we’ll be here until closing time at South Hall 2, MP25354. Stop on by! For those not, sorry we missed you.
