It’s that time of year again! Even though the fun doesn’t officially begin until tomorrow, CES 2010 has already kicked off with press events, press announcements, and a lot of breathless speculation. Motorola is stationed, as always, in a rather large booth in the Central Hall of the convention center. And while much of the attention is focused on the mobile side of the business, there are a few goodies from the Home and Networks Mobility group.
First, Dolby Labs and Motorola announced this morning that Dolby’s Volume technology will be featured in Motorola set-tops. You know how commercials often sound a lot louder than your TV show? The Dolby tech lets you set a volume level that stays consistent across commercials and channel changes. Motorola’s DCX set-tops support Dolby Volume, and existing DCX3400 and DCX3200 boxes in the field can be updated remotely by cable operators.
Meanwhile on the 3DTV front, the MPEG Industry Forum (MPEGIF) has announced it will be holding its first meeting of the brand new 3DTV Working Group this Saturday during CES at the MGM Conference Center. Motorola is one of the founding members of the group and is sponsoring the inaugural meeting.
Finally, check out Motorola’s YouTube channel for CES-related content. There are two videos up now, one with commentary from Motorola’s John Burke on trends for 2010, and one on 3DTV tech. Enjoy.
