CEA SHUFFLES STANDARDS-SETTING BODIES TO EMPHASIZE GROWTH IN HOME NETWORKING
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Technology and Standards Department has reorganized its standards-setting committees to reflect the changing home networking industry. The R-7 Home Networking Committee, created in May 1999, now will oversee and coordinate the work of CEA’s integrated home systems and home automation standards committees, previously working under specific product categories. R-7 unifies CEA’s efforts to develop home networking standards that facilitate communication among the appliances, home systems, entertainment products and information devices in a home.
“Communication between the appliances, systems and consumer electronics devices in the home will extend the benefits of digital technology throughout customers’ homes,” says Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA. “This reorganization illustrates CEA’s commitment to being a responsive engineering organization and reflects customer demand for connected products.” For more information, call (703) 907-7664 or visit http://www.ce.org.
