Visitors to the 2006 CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES), which is taking place from THURSDAY (1/5) through SUNDAY (1/8) in LAS VEGAS, can expect a strong presence from HD RADIO. Highlights to expect from HD RADIO during the convention include new receivers across multiple product categories (including OEM, automotive, tabletop, and custom home), live multicast programming from local LAS VEGAS stations, vehicle navigation demonstrations, and much more.
"Following last week’s announcement about the formation of the HD DIGITAL RADIO ALLIANCE, consumer interest in HD RADIO technology has never been greater. In 2006, we will continue to work with our partners to help meet this increased demand with new HD RADIO products, lower prices, and more channels of HD RADIO programming," said ROBERT STRUBLE, president and CEO of iBIQUITY DIGITAL CORP. "There are more than 600 AM and FM stations broadcasting digital HD RADIO signals today, and we expect that number to double next year. When you factor in the additional programming made available by HD RADIO multicasting, the actual figure will be even larger. We look forward to 2006 as the year HD RADIO reaches the mainstream consumer, and all of the new products and features to help us achieve this goal will be on display at CES."
