Randall Dark’s CES Experience: Wrap-Up

Long-time filmmaker/director Randall Dark, who is the proud new co-owner of Texas-based Bulltiger Productions, was at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, in Vegas last week.

He was walking the show floor, taking meetings and striking up conversations with people on cab, bus and coffee lines. While there he was filing short blogs for postPerspective — sharing info on some pretty cool technology while also reporting on the atmosphere of the show.

Here are his thoughts from his third and last day of CES….

LG’s roll out of the new 4K OLED and ColorPrime TVs were impressive, but John Taylor also gave me a behind-the-scenes look at what LG is doing in the High Dynamic Range Technology arena… and that’s all I’m allowed to say about that.

Eric Druker from Tiffen gave me a tour of their booth. I loved the company’s new assortment of world-class filters, but I also liked their three-point quick set-up lighting array.

Check this out: A washing machine showcased in the LG booth had two different sizes to wash clothes in. Brilliant.

I met with Jeff Joseph, CEA’s senior VP of communications and strategic relationships. We talked about many things, from Ultra HD to programmable cars. I was most intrigued by his take on 3D printing. Jeff anticipates an explosion of 3D printing start-ups that can get involved in a variety of services — from the food industry all the way to biological replacements.

Thursday night  I was honored to be able to attend the 66th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. SMPTE executive director Barbara Lange accepted the Philo T. Farnsworth Award and the Charles F. Jenkins Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Canon’s Larry Thorpe.

Wrap Up
I was just informed that CES 2015 was the largest show in its history, with more than 3,600 exhibitors.  I think I visited 3,598! Considering that an estimated 170,000 industry professionals attended the event, I want to extend my thanks to the companies that took the time to offer me the close-up and personal experience of interacting with the next generation of some of the coolest technology on the planet.
