Best in Show Awards of 2016

November 30, 2016
We are pleased to honor exceptional products that were exhibited at CEDIA 2016. This digital Program Guide features all of the nominees in the 2016 awards program and highlights the winners.

The NewBay Media Best of Show Award is given by Residential Systems and TWICE. Exhibitors were allowed to submit a product for consideration by one or more of these publications, and may submit multiple products; they pay a fee for each nomination. Winners were selected by panels of professional integrators and editors based on descriptions provided by exhibitors via a nomination form as well as on judges' inspection at the convention.

This Program Guide reproduces the nomination text and images submitted by the exhibitors. It is divided into sections that list all nominees, sorted by publication; the winners are indicated by an award banner on the top of the page.

The awards program allows companies to tell you in their own words why they believe a certain product is noteworthy; and this Program Guide offers an excellent sampler of new technology from the convention floor.

We hope you enjoy it.
