A few weeks ago, at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, we introduced Videoscape – our vision and product portfolio for re-inventing television in a way that bridges broadcast, Pay TV, online, on-demand, social media, and communications.

What does that really mean? Check out this series of four shorts , created to add depth and context to the notion of television, re-invented. It’s all about what Videoscape can do for service providers, to dramatically improve how people consume television.

CES 2011: Bob Marley’s Vision of One Love, One World

A wooden “house” is not something you may ordinarily see on the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show, and that is only ONE of the reasons that crowds lined up to hear about the MARLEY audio electronics line.

The MARLEY audio electronics line is designed using eco-friendly and recycled material. There are three different lines – Jammin’, Freedom, and Destiny. The booth contained dozens of prototypes for exhibitors to check out and including earbuds, headphones, docking stations, speakers and boom boxes ranging from $29.99 to $499.99.

I knew this was MY favorite booth at CES 2011 as soon as I heard that a portion of the MARLEY audio electronics proceeds go to charities that empower youth, protect our planet and encourage global peace.

Check out this exclusive interview I did with Bob Marley’s grandson from the show floor!

Cisco at CES 2011: How Do You Perform LIVE Interactive Magic Tricks from Las Vegas to LA Without Travelling?

Two words…..Cisco ūmi!

We were ecstatic to have the opportunity to bring our magician, Jeff, LIVE over Cisco ūmi from Santa Monica to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas so he could show off his magic tricks. Crowds of people huddled around to get on camera and show off their Exhibitor passes so that Jeff could have the opportunity to personalize their ”magical” experience with ūmi for the first time.

It was amazing to see the reaction on people’s faces as soon as they saw ūmi. Many of them thought that we were playing a video of magic tricks on our HD Television, until Jeff would comment on what folks were wearing or would take a photo of the crowd at CES who were anxiously waiting to see what Jeff had in store for them.

Check out the reaction of one of the exhibitor’s at CES 2011 as he experienced his first a ūmi magic trick experience from over 300 miles away.
