‘Connected’ CE Sales Poised to Explode, Driven by Consumer Demand – CE Pro
As if there was any doubt that connected CE devices would take off, someone actually put a number on it. Parks Associates defines the category, which allows users to access and display photos and music on home networks and retrieve online contents like games and videos, includes networked TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, home media servers and set-top boxes. And just how does everyone intend to connect these devices to broadband? A wired home network makes more and more sense for both the number of connected CE products that will be in the home as well as the performance expected by consumers. And if you don’t already have CAT-5/6 installed, a MoCA home network will be the next best thing.
