CeBIT 2005 - Displays, Technology, Innovations
By Reinold Növermann und Achim Behrendt
Translation by Johannes Post
Packed with glossy brochures, press releases on DVDs and CD, and plenty of information, the Prad.de Team returned from CeBIT 2005 in Hannover. Among many other things, we were able to talk to Hyundai, NEC, Eizo, LG, Fujitsu-Siemens as well as to the panel manufacturer Chi Mei Optoelectronic (CMO) for you. We will report to you what we have learned about new models, technologies and what to expect in the near future.
Unfortunately, we did not have enough time on our hands to pay a visit to all manufacturers, which is why decided to focus on the biggest players of this industry. Regrettably, Samsung and Iiyama were not available for talks. However, we will of course report about any information that might reach us subsequently. We now have Iiyama's CeBIT information available. It has been included in our CeBIT Special.
You can also skip to the respective manufacturers and our conclusion of the CeBIT 2005 by using the following direct links:
Display manufacturers and their product arrays pooled together in hall 21. Samsung was dominating the scenery with its giant centrally located fluffy white carpeted stand that not only showed LCD monitors but also cell phones and plasma TVs. By presenting the world's biggest plasma TV as well as the world's biggest LCD TV, Samsung managed to literally pull the crowd with fascinatingly vibrant, high resolution pictures, catching the eyes of the people passing by. The beautiful hostesses at Samsung's stand had their share too, resulting in large crowds at Samsung's stand from early in the morning on. Thus, for the time being, we decided to hold off on visiting Samsung and attended to LG instead.
