The wait is finally over. Please put your hands together for the products and brands that have triumphed in the SVI Trade Awards 2010...

As with the two previous competitions, the idea was to canvas the opinion of the Audio-visual and Custom Installation industries on the full gamut of home entertainment and automation technologies, as well as the manufacturers and distributors offering them, and the training courses available to simplify their use and aid their sale to consumers. Unlike the two previous competitions, we elected to extend the voting period to gather an even more representative view of our readers’ opinions. Now, we can reveal who and what has emerged victorious.

But before we get to the results we’d like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone that took the time to register their opinion. The number of you that visited to vote was the highest in the Awards’ history by some distance, ensuring that the competition continues to go from strength to strength.

Without further ado, then, let’s find out who you voted for – those that won and those that were just pipped at the post. We will be inviting the winners to visit the SVI stand at CEDIA’s Home Technology Event in June, but for now the team here would like to congratulate all of those that came out on top. And remember, for a look at all the winners, pick up a copy of May’s SVI or download it from the link on this very site.
