Each year, CustomRetailer invites nominations of products that stand out for being innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented for the custom installation professional. This year’s winners stood out as particularly impressive, considering the unique challenges custom installers face every day on the job. The impact these products have on the industry is felt in the installers’ productivity, the dealers’ profitability, the clients’ satisfaction and the industry’s vitality.
For the winning entry, the following statement was considered:
The AVocation Systems Mountain Series HX-0808HAC/16 is one of the most powerful 8×8 HDMI distribution products on the market. With eight analog audio I/O and 16 digital audio inputs (eight coax, eight optical) the HX-0808HAC’s ability to convert all audio formats essentially make it an 8×8 HDMI matrix with a 32×24 capable audio matrix built in, giving an abundance of flexible options for audio distribution. It also allows a single audio source to be played in multiple zones with different audio formats in each zone (full surround, 2-channel, etc), a common limitation of many switchers on the market.
We’re proud to manufacture in the U.S.A with American labor and this award is a testament to our commitment to design excellence. Thanks to our whole team!
