This first Connected Vision of the year comes on the eve of the International CES convention, where the latest consumer electronics technologies will be on show. I had originally planned to be in Las Vegas but find myself instead in Sydney where we’re expecting temperatures of up to 43°C. I’m looking forward to another exciting new year in the development of television and video technology and services. I hope that informitv will be able to be of assistance to you. As ever, please feel free to get in touch. I wish you a very successful and prosperous 2013.
