Arlington, Va. – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has announced a new program to develop innovative industry standards at the International CES.
As owner and producer of the International CES, and with accreditation from the American National Standards Institute, CEA launched “CESpec” within its standards program.
CESpecs are a new feature of CEA technical standards that will be on display at the International CES. These new standards projects will be launched at the International CES in January with a goal of being completed in time to be featured at the following International CES.
The first CESpec project will be launched at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7-10, 2014, and the new standard should be available in time for 2015 International CES. Anyone can propose a new CESpec. The project description should be as detailed as possible, and it should describe the problem that your proposed standard is intended to solve. CEA invites all interested parties to submit proposals by September 30, 2013 by going to CE.org/Standards/CESpec.aspx.
Proposals must be supported by at least six people, none of whom may be from the same company, and all of whom must be willing to actively participate in moving the draft standard through the CEA standards approval process.
CEA’s standards program includes more than 1,200 members across 50 different groups. To become involved in any of these groups, please visit standards.ce.org.
The 2014 CES will feature more than 3,200 exhibitors unveiling the latest consumer technology products and services across 15 product categories. For more information on the 2014 International CES, visit CESweb.org.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
