Brian Tong's live tour of the Hisense booth at CES 2013

Tech Industry
Hey, guys. What's going on? Brian Tong here inside the show floor at CES 2013 and, you know, we know CES actually hasn't opened yet but we wanna give you an inside look of what's happening inside. While all the set up is going on, you still see a lot of bright lights, a lot of big things here. So, we wanna take you in. When you enter the central hall, one of the first entry ways you'd get into is the Intel booth. They're always really super colorful. We know Intel's processors are inside of a lot of the devices here at CES. So, we have this beautiful, lovely array of Intel Ultrabooks. These are you know, they're promoting a lot of their convertible different notebooks from Dell, from Lenovo that they have. This is a tree because we like to see screens shaped into artful forms, right? So, we're gonna come over here and show you a lot of the other things right now that are inside this floor. Again, there's a lot of setup, we have a lot of people here. You see this a lot, like five guys standing in a circle, talking about stuff. Yeah. It's very, very interesting. Okay, now, a lot of the people, may or may not know right, Microsoft no longer here at CES 2013 but instead, they replaced their booth with spaces from Hisense. Now, if you aren't familiar with Hisense, they're a company out of China and what they're really trying to do here is establish themselves as a player in the North American markets. Right, we have the dominants by Sony and Samsung and even LG, Korean and Japanese manufacturers that have really made their-- made a strong, solid, you know, market, they're market players here in the U.S. but Hisense is trying to show that they can do it just as well. So, we're gonna keep on walking down here. You'll see a lot of great colors here. Again, Intel, kind of using this pink, blue, orange array that is always really attractive but at the Intel booth, it's really, they're just showing off their technology that's inside other products, where a lot of these booths like Hisense are showing products they actually have. So, we have here, check this out. Hisense is also promoting their own new Google TV box. Think of it as its own like kind of little mini set top box, running Android with a Google TV platform. We are expecting to still see-- Google TV is still there guys. It hasn't gone away yet and Hisense is, you know, making that part of their offering. So, we're gonna keep on walking down this way. A lot of open space here also in booths, you'll see a lot of production going on, where they make their announcements. So, over on this side, these are the switch boards and the mix boards for when they do speeches, announcements on their big stage over here. You could see Hisense with this huge kind of long wall screen and all these LEDs that are still getting ready to get setup, but, you know, it looks very nice. All right, we're gonna keep on going here, businessman, doing business things, right? All right. Also here in Intel, again, they like to show off their Intel wireless display using Intel with their cameras, here for like you know, video conferencing. It's really a lot more, I've noticed this year at CES, is they're using a lot more open space where in the past they're a crap-- when the actual show starts they won't be a little cry-cry. All right. So, we're gonna keep on walking, get around this corner just to again give you another feel of what this area looks like. Before we get there, though, I know some of these screens are fully on but this is Hisense's XT880 design. It reminds me a lot of the Samsung kind of design with that really thin bezel and small bezel. But again, they're really trying to make themselves a player here in the U.S. and we'll see how they do. We know David Katzmaier is our TV Review's guy, so he's gonna tell us everything we need to know and see if they're really gonna be someone legitimate that we should pay attention to. Now, we're gonna keep on walking down here. I'm gonna do a little mosey, a reversed salsa, if you like. And GoPro, how can you deny that GoPro just really carved themselves like huge knish. And the consumer electronics market really associates themselves with the kind of extreme action, sports, and so they're showing off content that has been taken from their actual cameras. We know and we're familiar with the fact that GoPro recently announced their GoPro 3, which is their next generation of their GoPro camera, with a lot higher resolution, capture ability, and you know, you can really stick these things on helmets, on your surf board, which I do in Hawaii, which is always fun. Again, here we go, they're setting up this car here. They just moved this car in here to show off. I'm gonna imagine this is the race car that they've used but you know, they wanna associate themselves with high energy, high action, extreme impact sports. So there you have GoPro. Now, we're also gonna keep on walking down here a little bit more and one thing if you guys are watching these videos, we have this little contest called our Sprint Hashtag Series. And what we're doing is, if you see a hashtag like that, you need to follow CNET right in that hashtag and we're gonna enter you into a contest to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1-inch because we like to give you the goodies. So, that's something, just watch our videos. You'll see that, you need to tweet that hashtag to CNET and so we'll be doing that throughout the series but other than that, you know, this is just kind of an establishing shot of what we have at the beginning of the central hall. We're gonna be at Sony's booth next. So if you guys have any questions about what we can expect to see there, I'll answer them on Twitter. But we're gonna go back to a break. We'll be back soon with more coverage, more press conferences, and more coverage from the show floor. I'm Brian Tong. I will see you guys a little later.
