The publication's parent company, NewBay Media, and InfoComm International presented the award at InfoComm 08, the largest professional audio visual and information communication trade show worldwide, held June 14-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Rental & Staging Systems Product Awards honored outstanding products introduced in 2007 that are specifically designed for the rental and staging market. Winners were decided on the basis of a readers' poll conducted by the magazine.
"We are honored that Rental & Staging Systems' readers recognized the LCD6520 among the stiff competition in the category," said Jean McLaughlin, Senior Product Line Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "The LCD6520 includes more than 30 features and functions designed specifically for digital signage, creating a lower cost of ownership by eliminating the need for additional third-party components. An expansion slot also makes the display flexible and adaptable to emerging technologies."
2008 marked the second consecutive year that NEC received Best Plasma or LCD Display from InfoComm and Rental & Staging Systems. In 2007, the company's 60-inch PlasmaSyncTM 60XM5 professional plasma display won the award.
