Commenting on the award, Andy Fliss, Director of Marketing, tvONE, said, “When we announced the CORIOmaster mini we said we wanted to set users minds free to imagine. It was definitely a case of seeing is believing on the InfoComm booth as visitors crowded around to see the CORIOmaster mini Windmill. We wanted to show off its stunning performance and versatility in a display that would inspire videowall configuration creativity. We’re thrilled to receive rAVe’s recognition and to be part of the Best of InfoComm 2013 Awards list.”

Sara Abrons, editor-in-chief of rAVe, said, “Because there were so many new products and technologies shown at the 2013 version of InfoComm, it made our job harder. There were more products to consider than in recent memory. Considering all this, those that did win should be proud of their accomplishment as they, obviously, represent the best-of-the-best. So, congratulations!”
