Winners chosen based upon innovation, functionality, competitive advantage, and benefits to the installer.
CE Pro is pleased to announce the winners of the 4th annual CE Pro BEST (Best Electronic Systems Technologies) Awards, recognizing the most noteworthy new products and technologies for 2012.
“It was very tough for the judging panel this year, as evidenced by the several ‘ties’ in certain categories. In the end, 37 winning products will be receiving a BEST Award for 2012,” says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief.
The winners of the CE Pro BEST Awards were chosen by a panel of credible industry leaders along with the editors of CE Pro, to join an exclusive group of products deemed the most noteworthy for 2012. Criteria included innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer.
All entrants and BEST winners will be highlighted in the November issue of CE Pro and can be viewed online at http://www.cepro.com/best.
Awards will be presented September 6, 2012 at the CE Pro Headquarters Booth #3645 at CEDIA Expo at 4:00 p.m.
