A great lineup of guest for our second live streamed event from the NBC Universal Main Stage @ CES 2010. A big thanks to the NBC Universal Staff and our friends over at NBC for letting us host this event from their main stage. I should also mention the folks from Sharp and their sponsorship of the New Media Lounge that we used as well.
On event #2 we have everything from robotic pets with a personality to green devices from C. Crane. A fun show as always here is the full lineup!
The two live streaming events we had from the NBC Universal booth at CES 2010 has made us sit back in our chairs and contemplate what we will be doing at CES in 2011. Planning for that show started only a few hours after the show closed as we have an entirely new perspective from these two live events.
With over 14,000 people viewing the 2 Live events, and an expected 500,000 downloads of the two shows over the next 72 hours we are pretty excited about the exposure this has brought to the vendors we have highlighted.
It should be noted we have a huge amount of content from CES to present to you, in the coming days but wanted to share a couple of images from NBC so that you can see what we have been up to, including giving you an idea what it is like to be able to work on a multi-million dollar set. We have a 1018 pictures on Flickr for you to look at as well.
The team from the Tech Podcast Network which include your humble host, had our first live streamed event from the NBC Universal booth at CES 2010. We had 6 guest on the show, introducing some very cool products and services. The live streamed event from NBC Universal was unique in that our friends at NBCU allowed our team access to their main stage.
Well over 8500 people watched the show as it was being streamed live. The support from NBC Universal staff was remarkable. We hope that you will enjoy this show as much as we enjoyed putting it on for you. Big thank you to Sharp for sponsoring “The Blogger Lounge” and make sure you remember to watch the Olympics on NBC Universal this winter in Vancouver.
It’s the end of the year and I bring on two special guests to have a chat. I hope you enjoy the show. Programming note, You will find links to the Special Media Feed, and iTunes subscription link below this is where 99% of the 2010 CES coverage is going to be placed, “subscribe to that feed today”.
CES Coverage / Podcast Media Schedule for next week: Regular Podcast Feed Content
Two of the big events for CES 2010, for the Tech Podcast Network crew headed to vegas is our live streaming events we will be doing from NBC Universal main stage. Our friends at NBC Universal, made available some time for us on Saturday, January 9th and Sunday January 10th to do two live streamed events, so we needed to make sure that all the equipment we were going to need is shipped. This is a crude drawing of how it is going to be wired up. I will be bagging and tagging cables and gear this weekend. I will give you a Video tour of the setup later this weekend.
Reminder to oneself turn the heat off in the room before starting the show. Not good to record the show when its 80 in the room. The folks watching the live stream got to watch a meltdown. :) Full tech show for you tonight. Ready to head home plans for 24hr Podcast are progressing. I review names submitted for the skypesaurus email me your choice.
The march is on for CES 2010, hotels booked, airline reservations made and rough schedule laid out. We will have a record number of people in Vegas this year to cover all of the big and small events. We are currently confirmed for Show Stoppers, CES Unveiled, CES and a variety of 1 on 1 meetings and smaller events. At this point we are once again waiting for confirmation for admittance to Pepcom Digital Experience and will likely not be able to take our Executive Editors and camera crews into the event so we will likely tag team with the interview crew as we did last year to run the cameras at their event.
New this year we will be broadcasting from the NBC Universal show floor at CES. Exact times are to be scheduled but we will have several live events from the NBC Universal show space. In addition we will be doing our daily wrap up shows with product highlights throughout the convention space .
Additionally we will a large amount of live streamed video from our roving camera crews. Our Interview crews will be meeting with a slew of vendors as always. All told we are likely to have nearly 100 hours of video content available to watch during or after the show. This year all of our content will be split into specific media streams. Interviews will be on our primary channels, roving video will be on a secondary channel so that you can keep the timelines straight.
As always our goal is to find the coolest content and bring to you unlike other venues. Vendors should be on the lookout for our trademark equipment vest. Be sure to flag us down and get your product pitched on our family of content provider sites.

I had lot’s of fun on this show.. Pile of things to cover. I am headed to Texas next week so will be taking the show on the road. I will be doing a Thanksgiving evening show so if your full of Turkey and still awake, I will try and knock out a show earlier in the evening Hawaii time. Drive safe and have a great holiday! Your trials of our sponsors products and feedback is greatly appreciated.
We have to take our hats off to the folks from NBC Universal. They opened a portion of their multi-million dollar booth to new media folks and had a fabulous new media lounge that allowed invited bloggers and podcasters time to come in and have access to a huge amount of bandwidth and time to make blog postings to their sites. NBC Universal is the home of Hulu.com and iVillage.com Check out the access NBC Universal gave bloggers during CES 2009
