CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.
In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
Sony has increased its leadership position in the category, and Sony, Epson and Digital Projection each added to its numbers.
The gain for DPI represents a nice rebound for the Atlanta-based company after experiencing a dip in its CE Pro 100 share going from 2015 to 2016. JVC and SIM2 numbers remain stable.
