Dune HD Connect named CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award Honoree Back

PHEONIX, AZ, November 18, 2013 — Dune HD, the award-winning manufacturer of full HD media players and connected set-top boxes, today announced that the Dune HD Connect, the smallest full-featured set-top box on the market, has been named an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Portable Media Players and Accessories Category. The CES Innovations Awards recognize the most cutting-edge consumer electronics products and selected the Dune HD Connect for its engineering qualities, innovative design, aesthetic appeal, user value and unique features set.

Dune HD pioneered the StickSTB product format in the set-top box category, which is designed to appeal to both operators and consumers, by packing maximum video processing power and connectivity into a USB drive form factor. Measuring 73x34mm in size (just under 3-inch x 1-inch), the Dune HD Connect features full HD 1080p, Digital A/V output 1.4, built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet, future digital broadcast tuner options, a micro SD slot, and USB connectivity — all squeezed into a Digital A/V output stick.

“The Dune HD Connect has been gaining a lot of attention by several industry groups and operators around the world and we are overjoyed to have it selected as a CES Innovations honoree,” said Konstantin Dyshlevoy, President and CEO of Dune HD.

Dune HD will demo the Dune HD Connect and complete line of media players and set-top boxes at the 2014 International CES, booth 21642, South Hall 1, Las Vegas Convention Center, January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas.
