CES 2008 report


Welcome to our Blu-ray Disc coverage of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2008, held from January 7 to January 10, 2008 in Las Vegas, USA. This "report" is a compilation of our photos taken by Ben, Josh and Peter during CES 2008. If you are interested in more information about a specific company/booth, simply follow the links to the news posts.

Blu-ray Disc Association Press Conference

Blu-ray Disc Association Booth



The Blu-ray Disc Association, which was designed by Disney, was a very elaborate display involving themes
from popular Blu-ray films. As you can see from the last photo, during the show it was packed.


Fox was showing off their Alien vs Predator vs You BD-Live game at the BDA booth during
the show. The unique game allows viewers to play across the Internet.


The FACTory Trivia Game was a great example of how BD-Live titles might be authored in the future.
Technicolor's product provides a simple way to enhance the Blu-ray experience.


BD Magic shows one of the many things possible with BD-Live; Many companies were showing off their players at the BDA booth.



Screenshots of some highly anticipated Disney Blu-ray titles: The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Peter Pan. Unfortunately the photos we took are quite blurry and contain reflexes, we apologize for this.

Final words



Josh: "I revisited the BDA booth on the second day of the show, to see if the excitement of the first day carried over to the second. To no one's surprise, the booth was packed just as much on the second day as it had been on the first. Even while sitting down for a late dinner after the show, I heard discussion of Blu-ray and Warner's recent decision to back it exclusively. There was a huge buzz at the show, which is surely going to carry over to consumers."

That's the end of our CES 2008 coverage, we hope you have enjoyed it. If anyone from the press is interested in high-resolution versions of any of our photos, feel free to contact us and we'll see what we can do.
