For the second year in a row, Kodi is attending CES.
CES, also known as the Consumer Electronics Show, is an internationally renowned electronics and technology trade show, attracting major companies and industry professionals worldwide.
Why do we go there?
Our purpose and goal behind attending CES is so we can reach and interact with companies who use and/or might benefit from using our platform and of course the end user. Especially since we started supporting Android, many more companies are jumping on board to shipping with Kodi and we want to make sure they’re using our standard unmodified build available from our website or Google Play Store. This to make sure the users are getting the software we are proud of creating and not misusing our trademarked name in bad way.
Previous year we got invited by an unnamed mid-west USA cable company which led us to a meeting with SiliconDust, who has since written an official add-on for their HDHomeRun product (actually, they contracted a team member to write the add-on!) and using us extensively with their DVR product that is coming out soon. Additionally we also met with Google where we discussed some things about the Android platform which where Kodi could benefit from.
Working with Kodi is easy and opens you up to a massive ecosystem of an already established platform and user-base. We’re actively seeking out DRM-free content providers that are interested in writing official plugins, do hardware integration such as home automation, or anything you can think of we might be a good fit.
Kodi can run in practically any configuration. Besides as home entertainment systems Kodi is also showing up in digital signage systems, schools media distributions, hospitality systems in high end hotels and even Yachts or cruise ships! We love to see how far companies and our users can take it.
Interested in meeting us?
So if you know anyone at such a company (or work there yourself) and you think you should have a meeting with us, please put us in contact with them, or give them our email: biz ad kodi dot tv and we’ll be happy to schedule a meeting, even if you can’t make it to CES.
