2011 CES Consumer Electronics Show Overview
CES 2011 - The latest technology and product innovation in consumer electronics is showcased at the annual CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year's event was held from January 6 - 9th, 2011, with press-only events held on January 4th and 5th. Check out the latest and greatest from the About.com home theater perspective.

Nokia N8 "Home Theater" Cell Phone
One thing about CES is that you definitely can find the unexpected. At the Dolby Labs booth, they were demonstrating something that blew me away - a

Philips uWand Remote Control
As home entertainment devices become more complex, easy-to-use remote control systems are becoming increasing important. One innovative remote control device on display at CES was the Philips uWand. The technology can be offered in remotes of different sizes and shapes, but the one shown at CES and illustrated in the photo on this page was a double sided remote with a small number of buttons on one side and a full qwerty keyboard on the other.

Samsung RMC30D Touch Remote Control
This year at CES 2011, Sasmung featured the RMC30D remote control, which has a sleek design, colorful user interface, and capabilities, such as displaying a full virtual keyboard and controlling the TV's access to streamed and network stored media file content.

Samsung Blu-ray Cube - Blu-ray Home Theater Receiver Combo - Slim Blu-ray Player
Now that Blu-ray has been around for a while and is very solidified in the market, their werent any ground-breaking innovations, except for more network-enabled and 3D enabled players. However, Samsung did show off some interesting Blu-ray Disc player designs for the coming year.

Toshiba 56-inch No Glasses 3D-TV
I never thought they could pull this off, but Toshiba actually demonstrated a prototype glasses-free 3D TV at an invitation-only event here at CES 2011. What makes this TV very interesting is that it sports 4K resolution (four times more than 1080p)for 2D images, and full 1080p for each eye in 3D mode. However, the viewing angle is limited for 3D viewing.

XpanD Universal 3D Glasses
Although the future of no glasses 3D is promising, it is still not quite ready for prime time, and there are not only a lot of 3D TVs out there that require glasses, but many more will be sold and used before the first no glasses 3D TV makes to store shelves. As a result, there were many exhibitors at CES 2011 promoting their lines of 3D glasses. Check out an overview.

VideoEFx 2D to 3D Converter
One of the problems with 3D is that there just isn't enough content. 3D Blu-ray movies are becoming available, but at a snail's pace. There is also some 3D content being supplied by Cable and Satellite TV providers, but not everyone subscribes to cable or satellite. In addition, if you use the internet to access TV program, VUDU has started to supply content streamed in 3D, but if 3D is expected to grow, more content across all platforms needs to be accelerated.

Sonic Solutions - RoxioNow Content Streaming Platform
One company that has the internet TV phenomenon down is Sonic Solutions. Its Roxio Now platform is used by several manufacturers as the basis for their internet streaming content services, such as BestBuy's CinemaNow service, and can also integrate into retail point-of-sale operations.

Vivitek Video Projectors - CES 2011
I found a trio of compact projectors at a Vivitek exhibit that were quite interesting. Shown in this photo, in the rear is a Vivitek 1080p projector with built-in wireless HDMI (no model number given), facing left is a portable DLP projector with 3D capability, and in the foreground is the Vivitek Qumi Q1 pico projector in the foreground.

Optoma Neo-i DV20A iPod Projector
Wrapping up this look at CES 2011, I give you the Optoma Neo-i iPod video projector.

Sony 3D Video Wall at CES 2011
However, although the booths create a lot of buzz, the products on display have to prove themselves to the visiting dealers and press. LG, Sony, Panasonic, and Toshiba were all aggressively promoting 3D with monster-sized booths. Check out some of their highlights.

IOGEAR Wireless 3D Audio/Video Solution
One of the things that plagues home theater is all that cabling. As a result, wireless connection options are being promoted and are coming online slowly, but steadily. IOGEAR was on hand at CES 2011 promoting its new wireless HDMI connection solution that is compatible with 3D.

LG TV Web Browser Platform
Although 3D garnered the most real estate at CES 2011, a close second was the booth space devoted to the convergence of the internet, home networking, and home theater. Shown in this photo is an example of the Web Browser that LG is offering on some of its LCD and Plasma TVs. As you can see, my About.com Home Theater Webpage is being featured for this photo (plug alert!)

Samsung Apps Smart Hub
One interesting development in home entertainment that is gaining rapid acceptance is accessing content directly from the internet and watching it on your TV. There were many demonstrations of this at CES, and one of the most comprehensive internet TV platforms is provided by Samsung.
