SVC Announces the 2008 Pick Hit Award Winners

SVC Pick Hit AwardsOnce again this year, at InfoComm 08 in Las Vegas, SVC‘s editorial team fanned out to find some of the most important, leading-edge AV-related products debuting at the show, investigating if they might be deserving of our annual InfoComm Pick Hit awards.
What makes a product Pick-Hit worthy? Well, first, it has to be new, and real. That means the product hasn’t been shown at any previous InfoComm shows — although it might have initially been introduced earlier in the calendar year at some other industry event. From an InfoComm point of view, the product had to debut on the show floor as a real product, not a technology demo, with a scheduled ship date before the end of 2008.

But, more importantly, the product must be technologically innovative, designed to help systems contractors offer more to their clients, while making their own jobs easier and moving the industry forward one way or another.

Here is a quick look at SVC‘s Pick Hit Award winners for InfoComm 2008. For a more detailed look at our choices, see the August issue of SVC.
