CES 2012 is kicking off in Las Vegas and SmartHouse and ChannelNews are live on the ground at the show where hundreds of Australian dealers are attending.

During the next few days we will bring live coverage of all the major announcements. We will keep you in touch with the products trends and the categories that will be hot in the second half of 2012 as many of the new products launched as CES hit Australian stores.

Among the big announcements will be Smart TV’s, with processors and OLED screens, Google TV is also hot along with new Ultrabooks tablets and digital cameras.

Our coverage is sponsored by the following Companies
According to the Wall Street Journal Consumer Electronics Show CEO Gary Shapiro usually sounds upbeat as the big trade event in Las Vegas approaches. But this year he’s not dismissing the possibility of setting an all-time attendance record, despite factors that include Microsoft’s decision to make this its CES swan song.

“Our pre-registrations are off the charts,” says Shapiro, the chief executive of the Consumer Electronics Association.

Last year, the organisation’s official attendance prediction going into the show was 120,000. When the audited figures came out in the spring, it turned out nearly 150,000 people attended.

Shapiro says he would be “shocked” if attendance doesn’t top that figure. The all-time record for CES was 152,203 people, reached in 2006, before the 2008-2009 economic slump sapped travel budgets. The company could also top the record for exhibit space used at the show, which stands at 1.85 million square feet, he says.
