Haier Interview from 2013 CES

Haier is a well known manufacturer of electronics goods, specifically home appliances and high definition televisions. Doing business internationally in the United States, United Kingdom and throughout Asia, Haier has earned a solid reputation as a company that produces quality products. At the recent International CES in Las Vegas, staff writer Greg Gibson caught up with Haier’s Kenji Higa to talk about gaming technologies in Haier HDTVs.

Greg Gibson (GI): This is Greg Gibson with Gaming Illustrated, I’m here at the International CES, and one of the more interesting displays that we’ve seen has been from Haier, and we wanted to speak with Kenji Higa, and we have him here with Haier to talk about the lines, many of which may not be available in the United States in 2013, but certainly a lot of technology both on the smart home and on the TVs. We wanted to talk about both the 3D TV that I saw, which enables a dual function to have two players, with two separate screens, Multi-View as you call it, and also see what else is new that you’re showing here.

Kenji Higa (Haier): The Multi-view TV, users can wear different sets of glasses that produce different images for each viewer. For example, a first-person shooter game that you play multiplayer, normally it’s a split-screen view. In this case, one viewer will wear one glasses and the other will wear another, so you see two completely different views. You can play this multiplayer game with just one TV, one screen. Another thing you can do also is one person can watch TV, while the other person is gaming, all on the same TV.

Greg Gibson (GI): The other thing that I saw, that is going to be real good for future gamers when the technology hits, is the vision control. Can you talk about that?

Kenji Higa (Haier): Yes, this is a brand-new technology for us at Haier, and we’ve integrated this eye detection sensor with our TVs. You can actually control the TV just by looking at different portions of the TV, and blinking or holding your gaze at certain portions. It’s a very cool new technology. Again, the future of this has excellent gaming applications, so the eye is the ultimate pointer, so you can just look at whatever on the screen, and once this is integrated with voice control and gesture control, you can do things like shoot the enemy on the screen, or whatever it is in the game that would be required.

Greg Gibson (GI): We’ll certainly be looking forward to that one sometime soon. The technology, again, that you have also in your regular TVs, you’re working with Snapdragon on Qualcomm, talk a little bit about that.

Kenji Higa (Haier): We partnered with Qualcomm to use their Snapdragon chips to power our smart TVs. These would be running the Android platform, and Snapdragon’s a very powerful processor, quad core, 1.7 GHz, and really strong graphics processing capabilities, so we can actually get very good gaming capability out of this TV.

Greg Gibson (GI): Sounds great. Kenji, thank you very much, I really appreciate it and have a great CES.

Kenji Higa (Haier): Great, thank you.
