Actiontec Wins Two CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards

MyWirelessTV and SG400 Service Gateway Named CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Award Honorees

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - Actiontec Electronics today announced it has won two CES Innovations 2012 honoree awards for excellence in design and engineering. The award-winning products are MyWirelessTV, a wireless HDTV solution that replaces HDMI cables, and the SG400 Service Gateway that powers the smart home.

Honorees of this prestigious program are selected by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.

"We're very excited that two Actiontec products were honored by the CES panel this year," said Dean Chang, CEO of Actiontec. "These products represent Actiontec's vision for the smart home. Consumers like the idea of being in more control of their digital lifestyle, and we're committed to giving them better ways to enjoy digital media, manage their devices, and keep their family and home safe."

Honoree in Multi-Room Audio/Video product category: MyWirelessTV
The award-winning MyWirelessTV replaces HDMI cables to deliver a 1080p60 3D signal to one or multiple TVs, up to 150ft away, with practically no latency, even through walls and floors. This means you can hang a new flat panel above the living room fireplace and not have to worry about cables ruining the aesthetics. Or move a large screen TV out to the patio to watch the big college football game with friends. The standards-based solution works over standard 802.11 WiFi and offers the industry's lowest compression latency with full HD H.264 encoding and decoding.

Honoree in Integrated Home Systems product category: SG400 Service Gateway
The SG400 Service Gateway is engineered to be a lifeline to the connected home. It's loaded with all the latest connectivity standards (e.g. Z-Wave, Zigbee, WiFi, Bluetooth) to tie together devices and services in the home. With the SG400, you can arm your security alarm panel from a beach in Tahiti, check in on the live video feed from your home's wireless security camera while at the office, and flip on the pool heater and lights while watching TV.

The SG400 features several unique reliability features, including an integrated 3G/4G radio and external battery backup support, to make sure users stay connected to their home services (like home security) even in the face of a power or network outage.

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow.

Actiontec's MyWirelessTV and SG400 will be on display at Pepcom's Digital Experience! press event on January 9, 2012 from 7-11pm at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.
