Sony Earns CES Innovations Award for Google TV Products

Posted Wed Nov 17, 2010 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Both the Google TV enabled Blu-ray player and TV are being honored.

Award season is always exciting, even if some of the honorees are a little obvious. Sony will be up a CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering award for its Google TV products, which should come as no surprise.

Innovations awards are based on four criteria: engineering qualities, aesthetics, unique/novel features and how the product compares to others in the marketplace. The Sony Internet TV has those wrapped up nicely, and while you might question the look of the Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Player, you've got to admit it tackles the other three categories completely.

Also being honored is the Sony alpha SLT-A55V Digital SLR camera which uses a new translucent mirror technology, designed to provide the fastest auto-focus speed for both movies and stills.
