Connectivity Solution by On -Q Home Wins EH Awards

The revolutionary On-Q Home Entertainment Connection Center (HECC™) has won one of the top recognitions in our industry, the EH 2004 Product of the Year Awards.

Harrisburg, PA (August 9, 2004) - On -Q Home, the leader in the connected home systems market, designed and released an innovative entertainment system connectivity product called the On -Q Home Entertainment Connection Center (HECC™), which has won one of the top awards in our industry. As the winner of an Electronic House Product of the Year 2004 Award, the HECC will be honored at the September CEDIA Trade Show and in the September issue of Electronic House magazine.


"We're thrilled that industry experts agree the Home Entertainment Connection Center is an outstanding addition to home entertainment systems," says Walt Zerbe, Product Manager. "These and other accolades we've received about our Home Entertainment Connection Center are reflective of the innovative thinking and design concepts of our On -Q Home custom integration experts."

The On -Q Home Entertainment Connection Center serves as a single access point for multiple entertainment system component integration, providing the most professional, aesthetically pleasing connection point for residential entertainment needs. The HECC features all the necessary entertainment connection capabilities, including CATV, digital satellite, auxiliary video input, data and telephone, and speaker connections for 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 home theater systems. With some models, there are also speaker connections for multi -room audio and A -BUS® systems. The HECC features both an "installer side" and a "homeowner side," simplifying connections and reducing confusion by keeping the two sides well segregated. A decorator -inspired, matte -finish cover that can be painted hides and protects all connection points. Wires exiting the HECC cover extend straight down, allowing furniture to be placed within one -half inch of the wall.

For the Electronic House Product of the Year Awards, the editors of EH Publishing's four magazines that are dedicated to the electronic house all chose their favorite products. Their decisions were based on reviews run throughout the year, product demos, and talking with installers and users of the products.
