CES 2019 is huge, huge I tell you and its not possible to
get around the hectares of displays (4500 companies), let alone to the lavish private
suites in hotels often many kilometres out of Las Vegas.
As a guide, there are 31
categories, and all have lots of tech
behind them. On top of that, there are dozens
of conferences and meetings. No wonder nearly 200,000 attendees from 150
countries go there each year.

Audio is going 3D and its not all Dolby Atmos.
Sennheiser has its binaural AMEBO, Sony with 360 Reality Audio
(basically MPEG-H 3D audio format). Whatever the outcome speakers are going to
want to add spatial awareness and that means content needs to have the metadata
to enable that.
