BEST Awards Winners Named at CEDIA Expo 2010
Jason Knott · September 23, 2010

CE Pro announced the winners of its 2nd Annual CE Pro BEST (Best Electronic Systems Technologies) Awards at CEDIA Expo 2010.

Nearly 200 products vied for the honor of being classed “BEST” new product and technology of 2010 within their product category. While there was only one winner per category, the quality of entrants was exceptional and the voting was tight in many instances.

The winners of the BEST Awards were chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and the editors of CE Pro and Electronic House. Criteria included: creativity, innovation, incorporated equipment, obstacles overcome, aesthetics and lifestyle benefits. An awards presentation will take place later today between 4-6 p.m. at CE Pro Headquarters (booth 1928).
