CEA Considering Portable Device Standard

CEA Considering Portable Device Standard


The Consumer Electronics Association announced Monday that it has formed a group to discuss implementation of industry technical standards for portable as well as handheld devices. The group is set to hold its first meeting in October, during the CEA Industry Forum event in Las Vegas.

“Portable and handheld devices continue to change the way consumers collect, store and share audio, pictures, video and other information,” CEA’s vice president for technology and standards, Brian Markwalter, said as part of the announcement. “CEA wants to explore whether industry technical standards might enable more robust connectivity between portable devices and other products, and whether such connectivity might help to grow consumers’ interest in such products.”
