Snap One Episode Radiance Speakers and Control4 CORE Controllers Named 2023 CTA Mark of Excellence Winners
The new Episode Radiance Speakers from Snap One won Outdoor Living Product of the Year in the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) Mark of Excellence Awards, and the Control4 CORE Controllers won Whole-House Control/System Management Product of the Year.
“Having two of our products honored as winners of the 2023 CTA Mark of Excellence Awards is another testament to our ability to offer Partners the best products and solutions available,” said Eric Harper, SVP Product Marketing at Snap One. “In 2023, we aim to continue improving and expanding our offerings and solutions with the ultimate goal of helping our Partners grow their business and support their customers.”
The Episode Radiance outdoor audio and lighting system is the world’s first outdoor system to power audio and lighting through a single two-conductor wire. Using patent-pending ACE technology from Swarm designed exclusively for Snap One, the Episode Radiance series includes a robust all-metal 70-volt outdoor bollard-style speaker and LED light module that can be attached to a speaker or mounted as a standalone lamp for both spot and flood lighting needs.
The Episode Radiance series enables Snap One Partners who focus on either audio or lighting to broaden their offerings with a unique, attractive solution that is durable, easy to install, and not available anywhere else.
The Control4 CORE Controllers offer a generational refresh of the hardware that runs each customer’s system and provides access to the full set of features available from the Control4 Intelligent Platform. Additionally, the controllers feature updated multi-core processors that run the Control4 OS faster and more efficiently, with power to spare for the new features and functionality currently in development. By pairing those processors with a 4K HDMI output, CORE delivers the speed and performance needed for a beautiful, interactive on-screen menu for instantaneous access to video, music, lighting, comfort, and security solutions. The CORE models continue the brand’s high-resolution audio tradition with new, higher-quality DACs and more independent zones of streaming audio than the EA Controllers they replaced.
The Mark of Excellence Awards recognize the best in custom integration and installed technology, ranging from custom residential installation projects to consumer technology products and services. This year, the awards were presented during CES, following rigorous judging by an independent panel of industry experts.
