[Starts abruptly]…next wave of the consumer technology experience. Sony leads the way in shaping how consumers enjoy their music, movies, TV shows and games and delivers news ways for consumers to receive information. And Sony has the most options for consumers to create their own content and then watch it on any type of device. From the earliest days of the Trinitron and the Walkman to the dawn of the digital and high-definition areas to 3D and now lots of high-definition TV and high-resolution audio and across any type of platform, Sony is always a leader out in the front.

And, of course, Sony always has one of the most exciting exhibits here at CES year after year. In breadth of resources, it’s unrivaled in addition to its consumer electronics reach and a movie studio directly produces box office favorites, a music label that showcases the best in every genre and a professional group that covers everything in Hollywood to network news. Sony ties it all together into an intuitive and seamless consumer user experience. But don’t just take my word for it.

Our speaker this morning has personally been involved in many of Sony’s achievements. Like Sony itself, Kazuo Hirai, President and CEO of Sony Corp. is a man of many talents. He’s seeing consumer electronics from all sides from the successes with the Sony PlayStation business to international work with music artists to his leadership of Sony’s network products and services initiatives.

He also was the 2013 ESA Champion Honoree where he was recognized as one of the most influential executives in the entertainment industry. He is uniquely qualified to continue Sony’s leadership at the forefront of consumer electronics innovation.

Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming Sony’s Kazuo Hirai.

Kazuo Hirai – President and CEO, Sony Corp.
