CES Press Conference Rehearsal: Day One

by Team Sony 01/05/2008

 It’s early Saturday evening and we just finished our first day of rehearsal for the Sony press conference that will take place tomorrow in our booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show.

The main issue for now is that we have a lot to announce and the rehearsal ran too long. That is part of the curse and the beauty of Sony. Unlike many of our competitors we don’t just focus on one or two primary product categories. (Definitely not a “one trick pony,” as they say.)

We have news announcements coming in cool new TV displays, new television add-on modules, a one-of-a-kind audio amusement gizmo, a DSLR camera, new high-def camcorders, HD computers and an exciting Blu-ray device.

 There are also some advances in technology to talk about related to “higher” definition and wireless video distribution in the home.

Plus our friends at Sony Ericsson have some hot new mobile devices to unveil.
And, we have important business updates from the Holidays to share, along with some impressive partnerships to address.
So right now, my team and I are busy trying to cut things down a bit to squeeze it all into a half-hour presentation. 
In addition to these posts, we will have a video of the actual press conference on the blog via (Not sure we’ll make half an hour; I’ll be glad if we manage to boil it down to 40 minutes.)
I’ll be checking in with you tomorrow.

    I have used SONY products for over 20 years. I have an older tv and a $2,000 50 inch tv, a dvd-vhs, a 1,000 movie camera with the hard drivea dvd recorder.and a tripod which i paid $100+ for when I could have gotten others for much less.I had an older handy cam which I gave to my daughter when I purchased the newer one. I also have a SONY PC, a theater system and other things. Now then I purchased my dvd recorder. I had to take it back a couple of times because it did not work properly. I finally had to send it back and was sent another model. I have had that one for 3 months and it stopped working properly. I was informed that I had to send it back, which I did two days ago. I use it often and am very disappointed that this had happened. I rave over your products and I don’t want to have to begin purchasing other brands. I still love SONY and just wished to give this comment. Thank you.

    I studied the HDTV developments for 18 months befor deciding last year to purchase a Sony Bravia XBR3 40. I was so impressed with it that I bought Bravia XBR3 46. Since, I have purchased a Sony BluRay DVD Player and A Sony 910 receiver to compliment my set up.

    I am completely satisfied with all of them

    Kepp pushing the envelope.
