"Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology."

The ecoLinx, along with other winners, will be posted to the CEPro.com Product Awards section with a link to the entrant's site, included in the November issue of CE Pro Magazine, and social media coverage. ecoLinx will also be featured in the November Issue of CE Pro magazine, posted to CEPro.com, usage of the CE Pro BEST Award Winner Logo, and will have recognition during CEDIA.
