Read This First: How to Use the rAVe CEDIA Expo 2014 MicroSite

cedia3-0914The 2014 version of CEDIA Expo has come to a close, but our coverage here will live forever here — on this CEDIA 2014 MicroSite!

We have so much coverage — and there’s so much information on this CEDIA MicroSite that it can be overwhelming. So, please take moment to read this so we can familiarize you with what’s on this site.

First off, we please recognize that our five sponsors funded this site and all the coverage on it — so visit them and, when you do see them in person, thank them. All five have small banner ads on the right side of this site. We couldn’t do this without Barco, Christie, EPSON, BenQ and Stealth Acoustics.

cedia1-0914This site is not intended to be a replacement for attending the show live — you can’t replace an experience like that. However, it’s meant to augment an attendance. In fact, we get much of our site traffic from CEDIA attendees who couldn’t see everything they wanted to see in the  three days of the show in Denver and the rest come from people who wish they could attend and didn’t get to. Either way, you will find this show MicroSite helpful.

The home page is sort of an aggregate of a little of each of the coverage in one place — sort of a launch page. To the right of the HOME tab you will see the NEWS & BLOGS page — where you are actually reading this post. This is where we post all the blogs and news stories that we write — as well as commentary — written by our team of reporters on-site at the show (and when you click on — or hover over with your mouse) the tab header NEWS & BLOGS, you’ll see a section called cedia2-0914PRESS RELEASES — that is where you can, literally, see news stories on every single product launched at CEDIA — yes, all of them). The tab right next to that one we bring you rAVe RADIO: These are all the PODCASTS we recorded LIVE from the show floor. The tab next to this one is where we posted all 670 or so VIDEOS we shot at CEDIA. We have them broken out by both product category as well as one-on-one interviews we conducted with an assortment of market leaders. Finally to the right of that, we have PHOTOS — we shot over 650 photos of new products and booths at CEDIA. They’re all high-resolution photos and you are free to use them however you wish.

We hope you find this microsite useful and productive. And, while using it, if you have ANY suggestions to make it better for future shows, just send us an email at pr@ravepubs.com — we do pay attention to your ideas!
