Intel will also be there to present “what’s new” product demos in the travel, senior, back-to-school, moms and kids, seasonal and entertainment products for the year. Among the products expected to be shown are:

Edifier, a China-based audio supplier, will show its five audio products for the U.S. market. Two models are iPoddocking speakers systems, and three are PC multimedia speakers. The docking speakers include the portable AC/DC iF350 iPod/iPhone-docking speaker system with FM radio at $179. The other is the $299 AC-only iF500 Luna 5 tabletop system with FM, three-way speaker system, 52 watts of amplification and a spherical speaker enclosure with elliptical profile. Both are Works with iPhone-certified.

Vizio will show a sound bar due to ship soon with wireless subwoofer, built-in Dolby Digital decoding, SRS TruSurroundHD virual surround processing, and SRS TruVolume, which prevents abrupt changes in volume levels when changing TV channels or when a TV program shifts to a commercial.

Vizio will also use its first appearance at the Line Show to highlight a variety of HD LCD TVs and wireless 3D Bluray Disc players using two different 3D TV techniques, the active-shutter technique using Bluetooth wireless technology instead of the standard IR system used by most competitors, and a system based on the same passive polarized glasses system used in most commercial movie theaters.

The manufacturer will also showcase two 3D televisions to demonstrate the approaches. A 55-inch TruLED Active 3D HDTV incorporates a framesequential display and active-shutter glasses that work together with the company’s 480Hz SPS high-frame-rate technology for FullHD 3D images.

A Vizio 65-inch passive 3D HDTV enables the use of less-expensive passive polarized glasses, while providing viewers greater style and comfort, Vizio said.

For 3D Blu-ray playback the company will demonstrate its VIA Connected VBR330 with 2D and 3D HD capability.

Sonos, the wireless multi-room-audio supplier, plans to announce what it calls “a brand new way to listen to thousands of live concerts all over your house,” a spokesperson said.

AOC said it plans to give attendees demos of USB 2.0-enabled features, including TimeShift recording and Digital Photo Frame still image playback.

The TimeShift feature, available in AOC’s value-centric 32-inch and 42-inch models, allows users to pause, rewind and fast-forward live content after connecting a 2GB USB 2.0 thumb drive.

The Digital Photo Frame feature, which is offered in all 2010 AOC HDTVs, allows users to manage and organize JPEGs on the set and to display them as a slideshow.
