"It is a special honor to have two of our most innovative new products recognized by members of the proAV and higher education communities," said Steve Seminario, vice president of product development at Planar. "Both the Planar HRO Series and Planar HB Series Huddle Board enable new and fast growing applications for Planar displays that we are excited to be getting into the hands of our customers."

Selected by readers, Sound & Video Contractor's 2020 Innovative Product Awards celebrate recent electronic and mechanical innovations, along with the engineering and engineers behind each of these products. The 10th annual program recognized products ranging from display and laser projection technology to live streaming and digital media solutions.

Digital Signage Magazine's 2021 DIGI Awards is a highly regarded industry award acknowledging the outstanding integrators, content providers and product manufacturers in the digital signage industry.
