Pretty much every major consumer electronics manufacturer attending the show has their moment in the spotlight Wedensday, with some 15 press conferences scheduled – including the evening’s keynote by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
LG kicks things off at 8:!5am PT. The real meat of the day generally begins around noon, though, when nVidia and Sharp have dueling events. Samsung takes the stage at 2pm and Panasonic holds court at 3pm.
Sony will unveil it’s 2011 lineup at 5pm, followed by Ballmer at 6:30pm.
Ballmer’s talk was kind of a dud last year, but Microsoft is expected to have a little more “wow” factor in its keynote this year.
We’ll be doing spot coverage of news from the conferences here at Variety throughout the day, so keep checking back.
