By Andy Slawetsky – More impact from the Foxconn acquisition? Sharp is back at CES after a four year hiatus. With a much larger portfolio and the largest electronics company in the world backing them, Sharp is looking to take CES 2019 by storm. Here’s the press release:
TOKYO, Dec 18, 2018 – (JCN Newswire) – Sharp will take part in Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. To be held from January 8-11, 2019, CES is one of the world’s largest consumer electronics trade shows. Sharp will have a booth in the Central Hall, marking the first time in four years since Sharp set up a full-scale exhibit at CES.
Based on its business vision of “Changing the World with 8K and AIoT,” Sharp will equip its booth with four areas dedicated to 8K, AIoT(1), home, and business. Visitors will experience firsthand an “8K Ecosystem” built upon 8K-related equipment, devices, and solutions and “AIoT Solutions” driven by AIoT home appliances, robotics, sensors, and other devices. Moreover, they will be provided with home and B2B scenarios in which to try out the state-of-the-art devices and solutions that have made Sharp an industry leader.
Sharp’s incorporation of its pioneering 8K technology into an 8K Ecosystem and AIoT Solutions, like the COCORO+ service, have thus far focused on the Japanese market. From here on, Sharp is expanding and accelerating this development on a global scale.
