LI tech companies tout new products, services at CES
AI, streaming, turntables and more at the world’s largest tech show
By JEFF BERMAN
Every January, technology
companies from around the world
– including several from right here
on Long Island – gather in Las
Vegas to tout their latest products
and services at the massive
Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The standout trend this time was
the growth of artificial intelligence
(AI) – used already in Amazon
Echo and its other gadgets using
the Alexa voice-powered personal
assistant – across a vast array of
new devices and services. Other
standout trends reflected the
growth of Ultra High-Definition
(UHD) TVs that offer four times
the resolution of HD TVs and
over-the-top (OTT) streaming
video services, as more and more
consumers “cut the cord” with
traditional pay TV services.
Among LI companies at CES,
none demonstrated as many key
show trends as Plainview-based
NeuLion, specializing in digital video
broadcasting and the distribution and
monetization of live and on-demand
content to Internet-enabled devices. The
company demonstrated new features of
its NeuLion Digital Platform, used by
a variety of media companies. “One of
the biggest things that we launched at
the show was the ability to collect watch

data” enabling clients to gain better
insight into how viewers are watching
streamed OTT content and on what
devices they’re watching, Chris Wagner,
NeuLion co-founder and executive vice
Among the new microscopes and
telescopes from Ronkonkoma-based
Carson Optical, one clear standout
was the MicroMini MM-380 20x
with smartphone adapter. It offered a
clear sign that smartphone popularity
is even impacting the microscope
market. The $19 microscope comes
with an LED microscope light, an
LED flashlight and a UV light.
Port Washington’s Innovative
Technology capitalizes on turntable
demand and its purchase of the
historic Victrola brand name.
Standout new products that the US
record player market share leader

Diocese of Rockville Centre?
introduced at its 15th CES were
the Madison, a reproduction of a
1922 Victrola turntable that retails
for $199, and a new mid-century
modern line ($199-$149) that’s
highlighted by the Empire, said
CEO and company founder Corey
Lieblein. These “all-in-one” music
systems feature not only turntables,
but a CD player, FM radio and
Bluetooth wireless connectivity. The
Empire also has a cassette player.
Kings Park-based massage- and
pain-relief tech company truMedic
introduced the MC-750 Zero
Gravity Compact Massage Chair at
$1,799.97 and the MC-500 Rocking
Chair Massager at $1,999.97. The
latter “combines the relaxation of a
rocking chair with Shiatsu massage
and zero gravity to provide a
stress-relieving experience even in
smaller condos and apartments,”
the company said.
According to published news reports, the Diocese of Rockville Centre (covering parishes in Nassau &
Suffolk Counties) has announced a child sex abuse compensation program similar to the Archdiocese of
New York and the Diocese of Brooklyn.
