Unveiling the latest innovations in gaming-related hardware and software in a centralized location is the focus of the 2014 International CES.
More than 40 exhibitors will display their hottest gaming technologies at the 2014 CES Gaming Showcase TechZone. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the 2014 International CES is scheduled Jan. 7-10, in Las Vegas.
Exhibitors will showcase their disruptive gaming technologies across 10,800 square feet of exhibit space within the Gaming Showcase. Located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, the TechZone will feature advancements in mobile and online gaming and gaming-related product debuts – from mobile, online and high-definition gaming, plasma high-definition TV to surround sound and power-conditioning hardware.
“The Gaming Showcase at the 2014 International CES is a must-stop destination for the latest gaming trends from around the globe,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES. “The 2013 International CES saw unmatched innovation in gaming technology with the launch of NVIDIA’s Project Shield, the Oculus Rift, the Sifteo and the Razer Edge. We look forward to witnessing the bleeding-edge gaming technologies that will be unveiled at the 2014 CES.”
Major gaming exhibitors at the 2014 International CES include AMD, Innex, Intel, Logitech, Nokia, Nvidia, Orbotix and Sony. Mobile gaming has been a high-growth market in recent years, with revenues increasing at triple-digit rates in 2011 and 2012. The expected launch of two updated gaming platforms this year is likely to bring a flurry of interest and innovation to the gaming category at the 2014 International CES.
Qualcomm’s launch of its flagship Snapdragon 800 Processor at the 2013 CES introduced the capability of playing or displaying 4K video on a smartphone or tablet. The social gaming market is forecast to reach some $5 billion by the year 2015.
The 2014 edition will feature more than 3,200 global technology companies unveiling the latest consumer technology products and services across 15 major product categories, including the latest in audio, automotive electronics, connected home technologies, electronic gaming, entertainment/content and more.
