“As infrastructure expands to keep pace with the ever-increasing volume of information that surrounds us, we see 8K as an area with massive potential,” said Ishida. “Here at CES, we have a variety of 8K devices and solutions that showcase our position as a leader in this exciting field.”

8K World is the name of Sharp’s constantly expanding 8K lineup. As well as the groundbreaking 8C-B60A camcorder and the world’s first 8K TV monitors, compatible with both 4K broadcasts and the pioneering 8K transmissions launched in Japan last December, the company’s comprehensive 8K ecosystem encompasses peripherals, editing systems, and 8K visual solutions aimed at diverse sectors.

“We are pursuing collaborations in industries like entertainment, education, healthcare, security, construction, manufacturing, social infrastructure, and more,” explained Ishida. “Our 8K ecosystem is ready to revolutionize each field, benefit our partners, and enrich people’s personal and social lives through images of unparalleled realism.”

Another featured lineup is AIoT World, centered around Sharp’s unique synthesis of AI and IoT. “AIoT World extends the smart home concept beyond the home itself with a network of AI-enabled IoT devices which constantly monitor users’ lifestyles and offer optimal services and solutions whether at home, at work, or on the move,” said Ishida.

“In Japan, Sharp’s vision of People-Oriented IoT is already exemplified by over 150 products in 10 categories, including kitchen, pet care and audiovisual solutions. And we plan to roll out such items to other markets according to local needs, lifestyles, and culture.”
Along with various other home appliances, the booth also showcases Sharp’s recently acquired Dynabook brand of notebook computers, highlighted by Ishida as another key element of the company’s vision: “Combining the Dynabook brand with our AIoT and 8K solutions, we will explore new possibilities for computers to offer innovative experiences to both business users and individual consumers around the world.”

Algorand Foundation Marks New Chapter in Global Economics with Inaugural Auction19.6.2019 20:56:00 CESTPressemelding

The Algorand Foundation announced today the successful completion of its inaugural Algo auction, marking the launch of the Algorand platform and its original economic model that uses a unique combination of consensus-driven blockchain technology and economic incentives to ensure absolute fairness and broad participation in a new Borderless Economy.
