Thursday march 12th 2015, feedback meeting on the CES 2015 with Burgundy companies that participated in this collective mission at Las Vegas the January 5 to 10, 2015.
This video shows a conference/debate on CES 2015. It is introduced by M Gilles Caboche and led by M Vincent Thivent. The conference takes place on Thursday March 12 2015 at 17:30 at ESIREM, engineering school in Materials and InfoTronique in Dijon. Some people representing companies like Tevolys, Active 3D, Réseau Concept, Odalid, LE2I, C2IP, RB2D and part of the cluster GA2B tell us about their experience of the CES, which took place in Las Vegas in January 2015. This show is the largest exhibition dedicated to technological innovation in consumer electronics, and received more than 160,000 people.
- According to M Thivent, teacher in ESIREM and CEO of Odalid, CES has two main goals;
- Understand the current demand (market) trends: it allows you to know if there is a potential market for your product(s);
- Understand current technological choices (eg: which wireless communication protocols are currently in use).L
It’s a very large exhibition, both in the number of participants and in the various fields that are shown: connected object (Internet of Thing), health, home automation, sensors… M Serge Grygorowicz, founder of RB3D, believes that CES is an international echo chamber from a media point of view because all the high tech newspapers and magazines are present. In general, there is a significant
French presence at the show, with brands such as Parrot, Netatmo, Withings, or MyFox which have won prizes. Connected objects also have a prominent place in this show. According to M Tony Gomes, leader of Active 3D, there will be an average of 30 connected objects per person in the coming years.
As a conclusion, as the name suggests, the CES is an exhibition presenting products and services for the consumer. According to M Grygorowicz, we went from a “military to consumer to business” model to a “business to consumer to business” model. Compared to previous years, there also has been an increase in the number of offered services, particularly in the automotive field. In terms of products presented, we are more in a fun dimension than in a professional one.
