CANON
Canon made an appearance at the Digital Experience press event and had a decent sized booth located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. On display were recent releases from fall of 2010 as well as new products announced at CES 2011. Products included: the recently released Canon Pixma MG8120 Wireless Photo All-in-One and the Canon Selphy CP800 as well as the brand new Canon Pixma MX882 Wireless Office All-in-One, Canon Pixma MX420 Wireless Office All-in-One, Canon Pixma MX410 Wireless Office All-in-One, Canon Pixma MX360 Office All-in-One and Canon Pixma iX6520 Inkjet Business printer.

EPSON
Epson didn't have show space at this year's CES so the Digital Experience press event was the first and only look at the new Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One and Epson WorkForce 60 printers, offering the "world's fastest automatic double-sided printing solutions," in their respective classes, announced on the Wednesday before the show kicked off.

Get more information about these products in our CES 2011: Digital Experience live from Area 51 and be sure to check PrinterComparison over the next few weeks for more information regarding the Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One!

KODAK
Like Canon, Kodak attended the Digital Experience press event as well as had a large booth on the CES show floor, located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The new addition to their ESP lineup of all-in-one photo printers, the Kodak ESP C310 All-in-One inkjet printer was on display and Kodak also had a fun, interactive demo of their new 3D photo print technology at their booth.

As we reported last week, the ESP C310 All-in-One is a 3-in-1 device offering print, scan and copy capabilities along with built-in wireless connectivity and a memory card reader. In design, the ESP C310 is very similar to the previous generation ESP 5250 AIO.

LEXMARK
We met privately with Lexmark at their Venetian suite since they didn't have any big announcements in the print area at CES 2011. They did have on hand their new Lexmark Genesis which will be available later this month (see our hands-on video first look) as well as the Lexmark C792de single-function color laser printer.

And make sure to come back soon to see our full review of the Lexmark Genesis All-in-One inkjet printer!

POLAROID
For the second year in a row, Polaroid had Lady Gaga on hand for their major product announcements at their booth in the Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This year Polaroid unveiled the Grey Label lineup which is comprised of three new products: the new GL10 Instant Mobile Printer released on Thursday as well as a first look at a set of camera sunglasses and a new digital instant imaging all-in-one featuring a digital camera, printer and digital photo frame in one device.

SAMSUNG
Samsung attended the Digital Experience show but their booth on the show floor of the Central Hall was the real show stopper! It was by far the largest that I visited during my stay in Vegas and might have been the largest at CES 2011. Samsung had one of two compact laser printers introduced in December 2010 and had a demo of the newly announced MobilePrint app in the printer section.
