The Tech Titans keynote addresses by Sony’s Kazuo Hirai, Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer, and Cisco’s John Chambers on the opening day of the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas all will be webcast live Tuesday.
According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), sponsor of the annual event formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show, “The Tech Titans keynote series is the stage where CEOs from the most powerful companies in technology present their vision for the upcoming revolutions in products, services and networks that will shape the next wave of innovation.” The world’s largest yearly consumer-electronics technology trade show will run until Friday.
Here’s a rundown of what’s up with the Tech Titans keynoters Tuesday:
Kazuo Hirai, CEO and president of the Sony Corp. (NYSE:SNE), will deliver an address based on his unique insights into the latest innovations at the intersection of hardware (e.g., the Sony XBR65-X850A) and software (e.g., the Columbia Pictures-distributed “Grown Ups 2”) at 8:30 a.m. PST (11:30 a.m. EST). The Twitterati indicated strong interest in the company two hours before the keynoter, making #SonyCES a top-trending topic on the microblogging social-media site of Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) at that time. Click here for the Sony-hosted live webcast.
