Vaddio Wins Awards At InfoComm 2011

Vaddio, a leading provider of robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, was awarded Best New User-Friendly Distance Learning Product, Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera and Digital Signage Interactive Whiteboard by AV Technology and Commercial Integratozines at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Florida.
Rob Sheeley, President of Vaddio, said: "It's an honour to be recognised by both end-users and integrators in the AV community. This recognition validates that our product development teams efforts are really redefining how simple we can make technology to use."
Vaddio's AutoTrak Automated Camera Tracking System won Best New User-Friendly Distance Learning System from AV Technology Magazine. The first annual 2011 AV Technology end-user awards programme recognises innovations that benefit end-users, technology managers and facility directors.
Judges evaluated submissions and selected winners based on the nominated companies' ease-of-use, reliability, overall network impact and ROI. This year's esteemed panel of judges included Phil Hippensteel, PhD, Penn State University, Harrisburg; Jan Ozer, Streaming Media and author of 11 books; Steve Cunningham, USC's Thorton School of Music; and Christopher Malone, CTS-D, Christopher Malone Associates. The judges stated: "The Vaddio Tracking system was intriguing and promised to solve one of the most significant streaming personnel issues - providing for camera operation. By doing this automatically, scheduling the operator is eliminated and costs for that individual are eliminated."
Vaddio's Squiggle Video Whiteboard Kit and ClearVIEW HD-20 Robotic PTZ Camera were awarded Commercial Integrator's Inaugural BEST Awards in the categories of Pan/Tilt/Zoom Cameras and Digital Signage Interactive Whiteboards. The BEST Awards programme recognises the most noteworthy new products and services that can impact commercial integrators' businesses in 2011. Tom LeBlanc, Editor-in-Chief, said: "Commercial Integrator takes pride in focusing on content that can help integrators become more efficient and more profitable."
A panel of experts, integrators and the editors of Commercial Integrator choose the winners of the inaugural BEST Awards.
Other noteworthy Vaddio products debuting at InfoComm 2011 were the ClearVIEW HD-19 PTZ Camera, ProductionVIEW HD MV with built-in multiviewer, CeilingVIEW HD HideAway, Squiggle IP Software Module and the new Production Workstations.
