While things are going to be different this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, CES 2021 is the first major event on the calendar for consumer electronics news in 2021.
Its new online format may be a little different, but for those of us interested in seeing the newest and greatest technology, it is still at the centre of the tech world with big names like Sony, Samsung, LG, AMD, Microsoft. Yet everyone participates in this event. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honouring outstanding design and engineering among consumer technology products in 28 product categories.
With all of this going online this year, we cannot convert at the Las Vegas Convention Centre like every January. Due to health concerns and global lockdown measures, events are changing online – and, like the E3 Gaming Expo and other shows, CES 2021 is an “all-digital” conference. We hope this happens this year, so the biggest brands should host their own live-stream ads – think Sony, LG, Samsung and the like – while smaller companies are running their own streams. Manage or come together. CES-themed videos are shown. The company behind the event is CTA, which is opening a virtual show hall in which exhibitors will be able to showcase their wares and attendees and retailers will be able to ask questions about their new products. The CTA states that we can hold meetings with up to 30 people at a time and communicate with one another in real time. A press release on the CES website originally placed January 6-9 as the date for CES 2021, however, those dates have been changed to January 11-14, 2021.
For the security industry, CES is a starting point for innovation in technologies such as thermal cameras and various sensors, along with many smart home and security devices. Most of the smart home brands recognized in the security industry are exhibitors. Owl Home is going to be a part of CES 2021 where Owl Home stands as a leading innovator for replacing traditional Smoke, Carbon Monoxide and Home Surveillance systems.
