RCA is returning to the floor of the International CES this week with more than 60 new products available for retailers, including a host of new technologies that will soon reach electronics consumers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. RCA can be found in Central Hall 13338, under the “RCA Welcome Home” banner.
Interactive Android TV products, 3D TV, a wide assortment of plasma, LED, and LCD high-definition TV models, mobile digital television for “on the go” viewing of broadcast programs, fully-featured business and residential telephones, Wi-Fi and portable Blu-ray players, and speaker systems designed for tablets and mobile phones are all part of the selection offered under the RCA brand. This year’s CES is the first to showcase a variety of “white goods” for the kitchen — including a line of RCA home microwave ovens.
Dozens of new TV models are coming to the market for consumers in countries throughout the Americas including Android-based interactivity. The full line-up of big screen high-definition models includes screens in all popular technologies, including Plasma, LED backlit LCD, standard LCD, and combination TV/DVD products to simplify DVD playback in screen sizes from 19-inch to 46-inch.
RCA is showing LED backlit LCD sets that offer three-dimensional viewing (3D) with the addition of active shutter glasses and a 3D content source.
With nearly 70 U.S. TV broadcasters now transmitting in the new ATSC Mobile Digital TV format, RCA is also introducing handheld 3.5” and 7” portable TV models that offer the ability to receive both standard ATSC and Mobile DTV signals — an industry first. And a tiny RCA tuner/receiver will soon be available for a video-equipped van or other vehicle to allow easy reception of the new “on the go” transmissions.
New residential telephone products from RCA are now reaching stores, with a full line of 14 models on display at CES, some for the Latin American market and others designed for U.S. consumers. RCA DECT 6.0 Digital models are available as standalone phones, with digital answering systems, or as corded home desktop phones. Intercom functions and call transferring between home phones are both available features, and a “Home Hub” phone is also coming soon with security accessories such as door bell, thermometer, burglary alert, and smoke alert capability.
RCA business phones include a variety of two-line and four-line models offering features such as multiple handsets, cordless headsets, and call attendant and call routing features. The latest innovation for RCA business telephone buyers is an eight-line small business phone system that accommodates multiple corded base telephones.
New audio products from RCA include a portable Blu-ray player that can connect to a big-screen display and an RCA Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi capability for viewing web-based content from VUDU, Pandora, and other sources.
A selection of RCA speakers systems specifically designed to operate with the iPad and iPhone will be revealed at CES, including a low-profile model with wall-mount capability, and a model with a 40-watt amplified speaker. A free app available with the RCA iPad/iPhone speaker systems unlocks and enhanced features.
