“The dawning of a new age in consumer electronics in upon us,” said Randy Lawson, principal analyst and manager, consumer and display electronics at iSuppli Corp. “iSuppli dubs this era ‘CE 3.0,’ a new phase characterized by smart products that come standard with integrated wired and wireless networking features, increasingly complex software and the capability to access content from the Internet.”
In this period of radical change, the CE market faces a number of fundamental questions, including:
- What will happen to existing television service business models?
- Where will this new content come from—and how will it be transmitted to the home?
- Are consumers ready for a growing number of network-attached CE devices throughout the home?
- How will those in the consumer supply chain be affected? What new service models will emerge?
Learn the answers to these and many other questions by attending iSuppli’s European Briefing Series at the Hotel Concorde in Berlin, Germany on April 20 through April 22.
At the event, Lawson will host a session entitled: Making a Connection with the Digitally Connected Home. The session will examine topics including:
- Wireless networking/video technologies for the CE market
- Expected rates of adoption for Internet-enabled CE products
- Evolving business models for Internet-sourced content and broadband services
