Motorola Earns Two CES Innovations Awards

Two Motorola products have been honored with 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) “Innovations” Awards: The Motorola VT1000v series voice terminal was honored with a “Best of Innovations” Award for small office/home office products; and the Motorola HDT300 digital cable-ready set-top with high-definition (HD) decoder has been honored with an “Innovations” Award for video products

Part of Motorola’s “connected home” portfolio, these devices offer new ways for consumers to enjoy the benefits of broadband communication and entertainment.

The CES Innovations awards acknowledge superior design and engineering in a wide range of consumer electronics categories. Evaluations are based on user value, aesthetics, contributions to the quality of life and innovative design. Recognitions are awarded to products that demonstrate the highest in design and engineering in their category.

The Motorola VT1000v was named the “Best of Innovations” honoree among small office/home office products. These annual CES awards are given to the most highly honored products in all facets of the consumer technology industry. The 2004 “Best of” honorees will be displayed during the show in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The Motorola VT1000v is a voice over IP (VoIP) solution that simplifies the process of setting up telephony service through a cable or DSL modem – enabling consumers to use traditional phone handsets to make calls over the Internet. The Motorola VT1000v is an integral part of the company’s broad telephony portfolio – which also includes cordless handsets, combination telephony/broadband modems, and the infrastructure that provides the foundation for IP voice and data services.
