Welcome to rAVe’s annual Best of CEDIA Awards! This year’s CEDIA Expo, held last month in Denver, was exciting, but was certainly dominated by an invasion of commercial AV gear. In fact, we’d estimate at least 25 percent of the products shown at this year’s CEDIA Expo were ProAV products or digital signage products. So, to be frank, it was hard to keep these award limited to only HomeAV gear — but we did!
So, this list of award winners represent the BEST of what was shown at CEDIA Expo 2013.
Click each link below to see a video we shot of the actual winning product shown at CEDIA and you’ll hear the winners, themselves, describe the winning product in their own words. And, in case you missed our CEDIA coverage, we shot more than 500 videos, posted 200+ new product news stories and blogged live from the show –and even took more than 250 photos! It’s all covered here on our CEDIA Expo 2013 Microsite.
