NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today that the HMP100TM Hyper Media Player from Swiss digital signage manufacturer SpinetiX received the NEC Best of InfoComm Award, given to the best product or service at InfoComm 2010.
SpinetiX donated the $25,000 prize from NEC to both the InfoComm Education Foundation and the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) Education Foundation.Â This is the first time that a European company has won this international award at InfoComm.
NEC Display Solutions President and C.O.O. Pierre Richer presented the award to Yann Guyonvarc’h, SpinetiX CEO, on June 11, at a prestigious ceremony held on the final day of the annual tradeshow at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
“The response to NEC’s Second Annual Best of InfoComm Award competition was overwhelming, and SpinetiX showed its mettle in a strong field of contestants,” said Ashley Flaska, Vice President of Marketing at NEC Display Solutions. “NEC is grateful to play a leading role in recognizing the best products and services at InfoComm, which has established itself as the premier professional audio-visual conference in the world.”
The HMP100 was shortlisted against stiff competition using online voting prior to InfoComm. SpinetiX was selected from among the products and services of five finalist companies, including Fulcrum Acoustic LLC, Vgo Communications (North End Technologies), Dataton AB and BOXLIGHT, Inc.
SpinetiX is an international company that has distribution around the world. It targets the high-growth, dynamic digital signage market with the cost-effective and powerful HMP100 Hyper Media Player.
Excited by winning this prestigious award, Guyonvarc’h said, “The HMP100 hyper media player uses open software standards that meet the growing demand for affordable and targeted messaging for a variety of custom applications in signage. It offers a cost-effective, dedicated and stand-alone alternative to traditional PC-based solutions to deliver content and can even be integrated with auxiliary equipment, such as 3G, GPS, RFID, video walls and kiosks.”
“We’re grateful to the terrific team at NEC in supporting this award,” he added. “We’d especially like to extend our great thanks for the time and thorough dedication received in consideration of our product from the distinguished panel of judges.”
