Tech Industry: Sneak peek at the CES 2011 show floor5:26 /
Take a walk with Brian Tong, literally, as he gives you a sneak peek at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.
-Brian Tong here at CES 2011 on the show floor. Now, the show has not even started yet but we really wanna give you guys a feel of what's going on behind the scenes. Right now, behind me, we're in Sony's booth. We're gonna take a little walk through their booth. We can't really get tight in all the products because Sony still hasn't announced some of them themselves but we're gonna kinda give you a feel of what we have going on not only here but out on the show floor and, yes, this is from our live streaming backpack, the first time we've ever done this with CNET.com. You can check out all the stuff at CNET.com/live but let's just get to this stuff they have, let's kind of walk through here so, Charlie, come with me. Now, what do we have over here on my right side? This is Sony's demo of just their Sony Internet TVs powered by Google. We know about these TVs. We're hoping to see new evolutions in the product as well but this is just a demo of showing their internet connected TV. If we point all the way up top here, this is probably about a 300-inch, if not more. Huge, large screen that they're demoing off the product as well, so, one thing that you know here at CES, everything is bigger and brighter so these are just those monster screens that you just can't stop looking at that are in high definition. Now, we're gonna keep on walking this way. This little booth here, you can't really tell but this is their future 3D technologies booth. Now, what's in here is a demo of glassless 3D TV. You won't really be able to tell at home how it looks. This is about a 22-inch screen you're seeing here but on the other side, they've even demoed off something as large as a 42-inch screen. The video quality looks really good but you can come and hang out over here. Keep going? Okay. We're gonna keep on going with this. Over here on our left hand side, we're also showing off their demo of their 3D games in action using the glass technology which is available right now and we're gonna keep on panning over here. This guy is really enjoying with the big, fat smile with his little Harlem Globetrotter action. What do you think about these? Do you like this stuff? -Yeah, it's awesome. -What do you think about it? -They're-- -Pretty cool, right? -Awesome, man. -Captivating. I mean, would you-- if the price is right, would you, you know, kind of clunk down and get one of these things? -That's what I was just thinking. -Yeah. -If you're gonna put the money off a high-def TV-- -Yeah, this-- You gotta go 3D? Alright, excellent. -Gotta have it. -You're gonna do that. -Excellent. Okay. So let's keep on walking now this way guys. We'll see what we can do. Again, this is the first time we're doing a live stream so if there's any technical difficulties, just, you know, roll with us. We're gonna keep on going through. Over here, not only do we see 3D on TV sets, but 3D camcorders so these are gonna be able to record video. We have it right here. We're not gonna get too tight into the details of it but it's the HDR-TD10 and that will enable you at home to record your own video in 3D and then view it instantly on the display, just like that, alright? So we're gonna keep on walking through here guys. Now, down over here, this is some really cool stuff. I'm gonna stay here for a second so we don't get in trouble but behind me, we're gonna get a little closer. This is a 3D production set of the Green Hornet. You can see the beat up car behind me so we're gonna take a closer look. They have the 3D camera rig, the multi array screens, and, obviously, you can see the sweet ride in the back. That is a beat up Green Hornet Lincoln Continental. All you little car junkies are gonna love. Brian Cooley, Brian Cooley will love that, so let's keep on walking through, guys. I know we're gonna be-- What? You know, let's check this out. -It's obviously a matter [unk] -No. No, I'm just kidding, guys. Alright. So we're gonna keep on walking this way. Alright? Let's go through here. Now behind me, what we're expecting big time here is Sony's press conference. That's gonna happen at 5 p.m. today. They're practicing over there. We're not gonna obviously show you what's happening there but that will be their announcement of all their new products, kinda some of the new initiatives that they're doing. We're gonna keep on walking this way before I trip on this little plug and let's all go head out to the show floor. We're gonna see, you know, if you look around, you see a lot more of Sony's demos but we also see kind of some of their cool TVs and what-not. Alright. So, as we walk out, obviously, there's a lot more than just Sony's booth here at CES 2011. If we head out to the show floor, you can even probably catch this logo over here. This is Canon's booth coming down this way. Now, Canon, obviously, for all you camera lovers, this is where you're gonna wanna go to check out the latest point-and-shoots, some of their DSLRs and we're gonna kinda maneuver ourselves over this small tiny space because Canon always puts on a big show like they have this live performances that are really artistic and extravagant so I'm gonna kinda direct Charlie this way and if you can pull in tight, you'll actually see they're gonna have acrobats with aerials. Oh, look. There's a car that just went by but we're gonna have acrobats with aerials. You can start kinda see them. They're gonna prop them up but they're on wires. It's a really extravagant, luscious set but at CES, you always have to do whatever you can to get people's attentions so this is what Canon's doing over here. You can see all the boxes, the crates. You can see the workers just unloading things. This is not even nearly finished yet. We're gonna keep on walking a little more because, you know, we're trying to show you as much stuff as we possibly can. Now, behind me, over here, you'll see Polaroid. Polaroid's really an interesting company. Obviously, we think of them for the old Polaroid cameras but now, recently, Lady Gaga is partnering with them. Tomorrow, I believe it's gonna be some time around-- Is it 3 or 4 o'clock? 3 o'clock, Lady Gaga is gonna be making an announcement with Polaroid on a new product. We're kinda curious to see what it is. We'll have it 'cause we'll be recording it and then posting it on CNET.com for you guys. And just one more thing, just to kinda show some of the artistic value of what they do at CES. These are Sony's new LED LCD backlit TVs and what they have is like-- It's like a piece of cut glass basically. Really artistic and everything but, again, I'm not even out of words yet but you probably wanna stop listening to me. This is just a little sneak peek of what you can expect to see on the show floor and you can see a lot of that on the show floor as well, alright?
