David Keene– At the upcoming InfoComm show in June, I am honored to be selected as one of the Judges for the “NEC Best of InfoComm Awards”, the now-annual program organized by NEC. This year, as always, it will be tough to pick “winners”, not just because all the entries will be good no doubt, but also because the contestants are from different product categories. But judge we will–and this year with the help of a “sixth” judge, the attendees at the show who will be able to vote on the winner and whose collective vote tally constitute a sixth vote.


Here is the release from NEC announcing the contest:

CHICAGO, Apr 16, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD displays and projector solutions, announced today that it will sponsor the Best of InfoComm Award, given to the best product or service at InfoComm 2012.
