Las Vegas, NV (June 25, 2014) — The HuddleVU Dugout, introduced by FSR at the InfoComm 2014 Show, is the recipient of one of the industry’s most prestigious honors. NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award was presented to the Company in Las Vegas on June 20 by AV Technology magazine.
AV Technology’s Best of Show program recognizes technological innovation that benefits tech managers. Hundreds of nominated products were evaluated by a panel of AV/IT technology managers, AV systems integrators, and industry experts. Criteria include ease of installation, ease of maintenance, anticipated reliable performance, richness of the feature set, relevance in the marketplace, value proposition/ROI, network friendliness, and versatility.
“We congratulate FSR on this award and applaud their continual dedication to reliable, easy-to-use solutions," said Margot Douaihy, editor of AV Technology, EDUwire, & Tech Manager Today. "Our judges were impressed with the HuddleVU Dugout’s genuinely innovative design which offers seating over a highly capable collaboration system. This solution provides more people the chance to be involved in an active learning or active training experience."
FSR’s HuddleVU Dugout, the latest innovation in the Company’s collaborative solution series, seats up to 12 users who can share their information on one or two large monitor screens. The dual height tables seat the users at two viewing levels to maximize space, reduce visual obstructions and provide seating comfort. Two additional seating areas can be utilized for handicapped seating as required, and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The inner table boxes furnish AC Power, Device charging, AV Connectivity and Control while the outer table has AC power and device charging. There are a variety of table finishes available as well as upholstery styles to match existing décor. Units ship pre-assembled for ease of installation.
“We’re so proud to receive this prestigious award from AV Technology,” said Jan Sandri, FSR president. “HuddleVU makes it easy for numerous users to distribute and view information on their smart phones, laptops, and tablets. The Dugout configuration accommodates so many more participants, plus ensures those in wheelchairs are able to participate comfortably. It’s a pleasure to bring such a practical solution to market, and winning an award is certainly a bonus!”
