Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced its plans for the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas beginning Tuesday. The Corning Booth, #11612 Central Hall, will feature a variety of Corning® Gorilla® Glass solutions as well as Thunderbolt™ and USB 3.Optical Cables by Corning and will offer demonstrations to show how they support today’s consumer electronics trends.
Gorilla Glass demonstrations will highlight the motivation behind Corning’s newest innovation, antimicrobial glass; the effectiveness of its antireflective technologies; the benefits of its notebook applications; and the latest breakthroughs in scratch resistance and retained strength.
Corning will also showcase Gorilla Glass for large-format applications. Gorilla Glass markerboards will be on display in the booth. Corning, eBay Inc., and Planar Systems (NASDAQ: PLNR) will combine their expertise in specialty materials, software, and digital signage display hardware to present retail applications of the future, as seen in “A Day Made of Glass.” Show attendees can enjoy a retail experience without ever setting foot in a store by way of a visionary demo simulating an 84-inch diagonal window storefront.
Optical Cables by Corning will showcase video and data transfers enabled by its world’s first all-optical fiber cables for use with Thunderbolt. The exhibit will showcase a Thunderbolt 2/4K workflow transmitting at speeds up to 20Gb/s and spanning more than 200 feet. Also, daily sessions on “Changing the Future of Production and Post” and how Optical Cables by Corning fit into this future will be offered by Gary Adcock, Thunderbolt authority and post-production and workflow expert.
“Corning is always innovating, and we’re excited to showcase a set of technologies that use glass to improve the user experience both visually and technically,” said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president.
Look for news on many of the technologies mentioned here to come out next week.
