Day 1 - IFA

IFA 2009 - A New Dimension for the Economy 3D, INTERNET ON TV AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PILLARS OF ThE REBOUND! Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President, Sony Corporation In this period, still difficult, but henceforth in a phase of rebound, IFA is more than ever demonstrating its dynamism but also its position as a “sure value” upon which the industry is wagering in massive terms in order to ensure a turnaround. The extraordinary quality of this year’s keynote speakers' Andrea Ragnetti, Boo-Keun Yoon, Fabio De'Longhi, Hamid Akhavan, Dr Reinhard Zinkmann and Ferdinand Kayser is reinforced by the presence at IFA of industry legends such as Sir Howard Stringer (see photo on left), Gee Sung Choi and Fumio Ohtsubo. The veritable arrival of 3D TV applications with films of breath-taking reality combined with major progress in terms of hardware, as well as The announcement by Sir Howard Stringer (left) that Sony would “lead the commercialisation of 3D" and by Panasonic (right) of the "3D Revolution" are just two of a number of major initiatives in this sense throughout the industry. In this, the first live 2009 edition of IFA International we offer you "New channels of market development in the fields of Consumer Electronics and Home Appliances" the strong development of Internet on TV opens new channels of market development in the field of Consumer Electronics. At the same time, the industry is this year very much awakening to the importance of sustainable development, or “green” issues not only as a USP, but indeed as an ingrained philosophy demonstrating earth consciousness, and giving strong arguments to Home Appliance products respecting the environment. The 3D Revolution! a full round-up of what’s happening when it comes to 3D technology.
