Audio and television are the founding fathers of Consumer Electronics, and they first found their home in NYC, in the era of hi-fi and pioneering live broadcasts. Despite all the new categories that are proliferating in CE these days, the audio/video sensory duo are back at CE Week, the industry's mid-year meeting, June 23-25 in NYC, making eye (and ear) grabbing announcements and offering next-generation demonstrations.
Westinghouse Digital said this week that it will debut new HD products, including a Roku-Ready HDTV and their new 4K Ultra HD lineup, at its booth at CE Week in New York next week.
Westinghouse – yes, Westinghouse — will be the next manufacturer to introduce a 4K television to the US market, although I guess what they lack in TV brand prestige, they hope to make up for in size. At 110 inches, Westinghouse’s Ultra HD offering smokes the 84-incher from Sony and LG.
Westinghouse Digital, last month at CEA Line Shows, debuted several new products, including new HDTV models and a new sound system.
The upcoming CEA Line Shows event, set for New York City this June as part of CE Week, has secured a huge commitment of exhibitors, with more than twice as many exhibitors in the fold as at a comparable time in 2011.
Vizio said this week that it has reached a cross-licensing agreement with Westinghouse Digital, under which Westinghouse will make royalty payments to Vizio for sales of licensed products.
Westinghouse has announced plans to unveil a new line of HDTV products at International CES next week.
