Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products.
Pulse~LINK’s Whole-Home Interactive HD™ solution is the first technology to facilitate room-to-room distribution of multiple HDTV streams and multimedia content over both coax and wireless networks, simultaneously, from the same chipset.
