IOGEAR Twice Named as CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree [11-15-2016]

Industry-First Thunderbolt 2 KVM/Docking Station and Ultra Long Range Wireless HDMI/DVI/VGA Solution Recognized for Innovative Design and Engineering

IRVINE, Calif. - November 14, 2016 – IOGEAR, a manufacturer of innovative information technology products for consumers and small- to medium-sized businesses, today announced that it has been twice named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Thunderbolt 2 KVM/Docking Station and Ultra Long Range Wireless HDMI/DVI/VGA Solution. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers, and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

The IOGEAR GTD732 Thunderbolt 2 KVM/Docking Station enables users to easily establish and share a complete, full-featured workstation between two Thunderbolt 2-enabled computers, allowing them to share peripherals and Thunderbolt 2 devices with the simple push of a button, saving desktop space and lowering capital expenses. The IOGEAR Ultra Long-Range Wireless HDMI/DVI/VGA Solution enables users to wirelessly transmit A/V signals from a source device such as a PC or Blu-ray player to an HDTV or projector over distances up to 600 feet line-of-sight.

"We're thrilled to receive this recognition for these two products because it validates our ongoing efforts to bring products to market that are the first in the industry and the best in class," explained Jack Wang, CEO of IOGEAR. "One of the characteristics of an innovative product is that people often don't know that they need it until they see it. These two products are prime examples of our forward-thinking engineering and product development teams and is evidence of how IOGEAR is continuously developing connectivity solutions that enhance productivity, simply connections, and reduce capital outlays for consumers and small businesses."

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, the producer of CES 2017, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

IOGEAR's Thunderbolt 2 KVM Docking Station and Ultra Long Range Wireless HDMI/DVI/VGA Solution will be displayed at CES 2017, which runs January 5-8, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada. A selection of Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities and runs 3:00-7:30 PM November 10 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.
