Off to study consumer electronics and “Mr. CES”

Rocky (my producer) and I are heading off tomorrow to Berlin for the IFA show. This is one of the biggest trade shows in the world, focused on Consumer Electronics. I’m lucky to be traveling (and studying) Stephen Leon. He runs Showstoppers at the CES show in January, which is the most important place for startup consumer electronics companies to show off first. The last few years I’ve seen everyone from Walt Mossberg to the Gear Live team walking around.

Anyway, if you’ll be at the IFA show, drop me a line.

Oh, and you can always look at my Dopplr calendar to see where I’ll be next in the world. Over the next four weeks I’ll be in Berlin, Washington DC, Boston, Las Vegas, and New York. Whew!

UPDATE: Looks like I’ll be guest blogging over at Gear Live this week since talking about consumer electronics’ news is more appropriate there.

  1. I’m doing 50 HD video interviews from IFA as I’ve done at all the consumer electronics shows around the world since 2004, I hope to see Scoble walking around at the show!

    I’m using HD DivX codec and big servers for streaming using the DivX Web Player plugin, posting on Youtubes as well. Trying some new cheap wireless Azden microphones and a Manfrotto steadycam with my Sanyo HD1000 this time to see if that improves the quality of my videos.

    Please drop me an email if you’ve got any cool product that you would like to see me film in HD quality.

  3. I just noticed that IFA ends the day before the CP+B ad campaign is going to break. Which is odd because I just made a post on my blog about that campaign…

  11. Hi Robert,
    I was reading an article on Read Write Web where I saw your name and was interested since I have a good friend here in San Pedro named Glen Scoble. After the link opened I was even more interested that your career is my hobby.

  13. You should speak with Gary Shapiro, who truly is Mr. CES. He’ll be there Thursday and Friday and would love to chat with you about upcoming developments for this year’s show.
