FAIRFIELD, N.J. –– Oct. 4, 2016 — Middle Atlantic Products today announced that its innovative, first-of-its-kind power solution, the DC Power Distribution, won two industry awards at CEDIA 2016. The DC Power Distribution solution won CEDIA’s Best New Product Award and Residential Systems’ 2016 Best of Show Award.
“We engineered the DC Power Distribution solution after hearing from our customers that they were struggling to power the growing number of small devices within their AV installations,” said Scott Lowder, senior product manager, power at Middle Atlantic Products. “The solution eliminates the complexities and space constraints of the messy wall warts these devices require and saves integrators valuable time without having to work around the issue. To win both these prestigious awards is validation of our efforts to solve these problems with a reliable, flexible power solution.”
DC Power Distribution is the industry’s first centralized DC power solution for AV, security, and residential applications. Perfectly engineered to power devices such as extenders, scalers, converters, and media players, the unit eliminates messy, space-consuming wall warts and other power clutter with a universal power solution for DC-powered devices. DC Power Distribution products are available as 45W DC compact and 125W DC 1RU systems, allowing the system to fit anywhere, including typical rack units, small enclosures, and wall boxes. Integrators simply trim leads to streamline their installations. System features include a color-coded screw terminal connector platform, polarity labeling for multiple voltage outputs, convenient USB ports to power compatible products, AC convenience outlets on the 45W model, and LED output activity indicator lights. The result is a solution that is intuitive to install, reduces design modifications, and saves labor time and costs.
The CEDIA Best New Product Award honors the industry’s top products within the last year. The awards are judged by a qualified panel of home technology professionals who are in the trenches selling and installing the latest residential AV products. Residential Systems’ 2016 Best of Show Awards honor outstanding products exhibited at CEDIA 2016. Winners were selected by a panel of anonymous professional integrator and journalist judges, who evaluated the product entries based on written award submissions and visual inspections on the CEDIA show floor.
