The Consumer Electronics Society (CE Society) is an organization within the
IEEE that strives for the advancement of the theory and practice of Electronics
Engineering and of the allied arts and sciences with respect to the field of
Consumer Electronics and the maintenance of a high professional standing among
its members, which now number over 5000. The society has long been the premier
technical association in the Consumer Electronics Industry. The Consumer
Electronics Society is truly international; its publications and presentations
are authored by researchers from countries throughout the world. Activities of
the CE Society are directed by the society’s administrative committee (AdCom),
whose members represent the technical and commercial breadth of the organization.
The scope of technologies embraced by the CE Society, which was once limited to
television, home hi-fi, and home appliances, has expanded to reflect the vast
influence of modern electronics on consumer products. Indeed many emerging
technologies in the field of consumer electronics are tied to the challenges
being addressed by the CE Society community, ranging from the devices and
networks that facilitate electronic distribution of information to technologies
that will make our lives safer and easier, such as intelligent automotive
navigation and control systems.
Members of the society are interested in the consumer related aspects of
leisure, video, and audio entertainment electronics; home information and
communications systems; and interactive information and display systems.
Products in these categories include video receivers, video signal generation,
processing, and distribution equipment; projection TV; still and motion
electronic cameras; HDTV and other advanced TV systems; personal computer
hardware and software; home automation and security systems; telephones and
accessories; electronic games and toys; digital audio systems; audio and video
recording devices; home, mobile, and portable audio systems; cellular
telephones and personal communications devices; music electronics; and home
health care electronic devices.
We at the Consumer Electronics Society are always looking for ways to promote
consumer electronics and provide benefits for our members. If you are able to
contribute technical information that you feel might be of interest to our
members, please do not hesitate to get in contact. Some examples of materials
that members can get access to are: Wireless USB overview, Six things every
Engineer should know about patent law, Air Interface Standards, and so on.
We are always looking for more information that would lead to benefit to the consumer.
