AUTON Motorized Systems Honored with Product of the Year Award
Legendary Manufacturer Recognized for the Second Year in a Row

VALENCIA, Calif. - -(Google News) -November 14, 2006 - - AUTON Motorized Systems, the world's leading manufacturer of motorized TV lifts, has once again been honored by EH Publishing for excellence in design and innovation for its all -new Shadow Trak System. The prestigious Product of the Year award is presented by Electronic House magazine, one of the nation's leading, high -tech home electronics publications.

2006 marks the second time in as many years that AUTON has received the Electronic House Product of the Year prize. In 2005, AUTON received the award for its Ceiling Flip -Down System. The EH Product of the Year award is one of the most sought -after honors in the home theatre design and installation industry. Using stringent criteria that demand technological innovation, overall value, ease of use, and quality feature set, a panel of nationally recognized industry experts is charged with making the selections.

A simple yet ingenious system, AUTON'S Shadow Trak allows users to hide their plasma or LCD screens behind a movable painting or art panel that is activated using a hand -held remote control. Unlike other concealment systems, the new Shadow Trak doesn't require any invasive construction or rebuilding and attaches directly to an existing wall using common hand and power tools.

Virgil Walker, President of AUTON Motorized Systems and inventor of the Shadow Trak, is honored to once again be recognized for his latest innovation. "We are always inventing and that requires a lot of work and a lot of money. It's great when you're recognized for your efforts and we appreciate the fact that EH Publishing is so involved in seeking out the best new products."

The official EH Product of the Year presentation will occur in Denver, CO on Saturday, September 16, 2006, during the CEDIA Expo, the largest trade show of its kind in the world. All interested media are encouraged to attend.
