Thin was in at the CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation) show in Atlanta today, as consumer electronics manufacturers showed off the latest and greatest flat panel displays and remote controls. Take the 3D TV pictured above. It's thin as a pencil and comes with a touchscreen remote that streams video, meaning you can send your own photos and videos from the remote to the TV. You can also watch a Blu-ray Disc or DVD on the TV and preview what's on TV on your remote. Unfortunately, TVs weren't the only thing that was thin this year. Attendance was down at the show due to the decline in the economy. The CEDIA audience is primarily the "installation" community, folks who install high-end audio-video systems in new homes. When the housing market is down, the installers are among the first to suffer. I sure hope things turn around soon.
