Vision Celebrates 10 Years of Executive Insight and Industry News


The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its flagship magazine CE Vision with a commemorative issue featuring insights from the world’s top CE executives. Covering 10 years of industry news on cutting-edge technology, evolving marketplaces and technology policy, Vision has developed over the years to match the continuously changing marketplace of technology.

“Just as the CE industry has evolved, so has Vision,” said CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro. “From engaging more of the industry’s top executives to launching a new, easy-to-read online companion to the print edition, Vision has become a must-read publication tailored to industry executives who need to know the latest trends and market opportunities.”

Online and in print, CE Vision delivers the knowledge global CE executives need to make strategic business decisions. More than 23,000 industry executives across the CE channel – from manufacturers, technologists, researchers and developers to financial and industry analysts, government officials, retailers and distributors – receive CE Vision year-round.

To celebrate a decade of publishing CE Vision went straight to the top and asked Sony’s Sir Howard Stringer, Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Best Buy’s Brad Anderson, Cisco’s John Chambers and Motorola’s Ed Zander to share their insights with Vision’s 23,000 readers. The May/June issue not only gives the big picture trends for global CE executives, but also delves into new technologies changing the industry.

On the engineering side, the current issue examines new transistor technology based on an exotic metal called hafnium, which should make CE devices more energy efficient and improve performance. The special issue also delves into opportunities and challenges for MPEG-4 video with applications from satellite-delivered HD broadcasts and video-on-demand cable to AVCHD-format camcorders and DVB-H video devices for handle digital televisions.

CE Vision also follows the user-generated content craze, in particular YouTube, and how it may increase profits for camcorders and video-enabled cell phones as well as blogs to enhance marketing. Vision also examines the market opportunities for photography as digital imaging takes over a former analog dominated industry. And readers can learn how government is affecting their businesses by reading Washington policy analysis from Shapiro and CEA’s Sage Chandler on how the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) is in danger.

Each issue of CE Vision profiles a different global region. In this issue, the markets in Southeast Asia – Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam – “the newest tigers” are examined. The four nations are at different phases of their economic development, spurring opportunities for CE manufacturers and retailers in each country.
