The success of the last edition of CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association), held in Atlanta in mid-September, left several conclusions to be reviewed. The most important thing to review is that, as discussed in InfoComm, the industry of A / V was not particularly affected by the economic crisis which we are going beyond the traditional delay in the release of budgets and project implementation .

CEDIA, but had a decrease of 12% in terms of individual competition, he could hold the large base of its exhibitors, indicating that this is an industry that still has good movement and acceptable figures. According to a statement released by the directives of the association, about 50% of the visitors were people with power purchase decision within their companies, which tells us that within this industry still continue to see the conventions as the ideal space for technological upgrading.

Without going into details (in this edition published an article about our participation in CEDIA), for several days they are being announced some facts that show that this segment (residential integration) will increasingly attracting attention of big names in the industry AV.

The first is the great challenge that comes by Sony to enter with a platform 3D screens for residential use in 2010. That is to say that this will not only affect the Bravia series (the star of the manufacturer in the niche flat-screen TV), but also their BluRay players and even video game consoles PS3.

But the Japanese giant is not the only one who is considering developing technology for the home. Toshiba, the former competitor in the race Sony BluRay vs. HDDVD, recently announced that it is making strides in integrating home by Toshiba Media Controller, its platform software promises to integrate laptops with other mobile devices such as digital players. It is important to note that this option is available only for computers brand, but still this is a remarkable integration of technologies within the home step.

So the recommendation I make is to pay attention to what will come in the next few days, for even AVI LATINOAMÉRICA be inserted into this logic with the inclusion of a section of automation for each edition next year and come. This trend is quite contagious.
