QNX Named as CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award
OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- QNX Software Systems
Limited, a global leader in software platforms for the in-car
infotainment and telematics market, today announced that its QNX
CAR(TM) 2 application platform has been named an International CES
Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, in the
Software & Mobile Apps category. The prestigious program was created
to honor outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics
products across 29 product categories. Products are judged by a
preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers, and
members of the media.
The QNX CAR 2 application platform is a pre-integrated software stack
designed to reduce the time and effort of creating highly
sophisticated and personalizeable in-car infotainment systems. It is
now being evaluated by select automakers and tier one automotive
suppliers for use in next-generation infotainment systems.
"This has been a tremendous year for us, especially for the QNX CAR 2
application platform, which has seen exceptional validation from the
automotive community," said Derek Kuhn, vice president, sales and
marketing, QNX Software Systems. "We look forward to continuing this
momentum throughout 2013, and the CES Innovations Design and
Engineering award is a great way to start the new year."
The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the
Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) (R), the producer of the
International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow,
and have been recognizing achievements in product design and
engineering since 1976.
Honorees will be displayed at CES Unveiled, the official press event
of the International CES, from 4 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in
the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay. They will also be on
display at the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase in The
Venetian at the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013
in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Separately, QNX Software Systems will also exhibit at CES 2013 in the
Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall, booth number 1837.
The Innovations entries are judged on the following criteria:
-- Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
-- Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided
-- The product's intended function and user value
-- Unique or novel features that consumers would find attractive
-- How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products
in the marketplace
To be selected as an Innovation honoree, a product needs to
demonstrate innovative design and engineering. For example, it may be
the first product to combine various technologies or it may offer
dramatic enhancements over previous product designs.
Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering honoree products are featured
on the CES Innovation Awards web page, which lists product
categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information,
designer, description, photo and URL.
