2020 Dealerscope !MPACT Awards: Accessories
Dealerscope’s annual !MPACT Awards program is designed to recognize those elite products in the consumer electronics industry that are innovative, leading sales on the show floor, and driving consumers into stores.
Instead of deciding solely amongst ourselves which products are worthy of recognition, Dealerscope puts the power in the hands of our audience. Our staff did pick a couple of “editors’ choice” awards that stand out to us. But we really wanted everyone in the industry—manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and even consumers—to have a say in the matter—from nominating these products to, ultimately, voting on and picking our winners.
It’s with that in mind that we proudly present your 2020 !MPACT Award winners in the Accessories category.
VII Series Power
Austere's VII Series Power 7S-PS6-S1 power surge protector has six outlets and advanced power features including Omniport USB with 45W USB-C PD and USB-C. Users can simultaneously power many different products in a LED-lit, impeccably designed package. Consumers are looking for accessories that reflect a minimalistic aesthetic that complement their expensive home entertainment systems; the 7S-PS6-US1 provides that.
Alpha Active Fiber Optic USB Cable
FIBBR's Alpha Active Fiber Optic USB Cable offers high-tensile performance and strong crush resistance in an extremely thin (1.8mm) and highly flexible package. Its transparent PVC jacket and pliability make it well suited for discreet desktop applications and it is terminated with high-quality connectors in a USB 3.0 A plug (for computers) and a USB 2.0 B plug (for DACs).
Presidio Pro for AirPods
Speck's Presidio Pro for AirPods is a soft-touch, anti-stretch case that sources design factors also used in Speck's award-winning Presidio phone case lineup. It has a rugged outer hard-shell that keeps AirPods safe from scratches while reducing the hassle that comes with installing and removing them in loose-fitting cases. Offered in multiple colors, the case gives users the flexibility to personalize their AirPods for easy identification.
Vanco International's revolutionary EVOSKILLZ, from its Evolution brand of pro audio and video distribution products, is the first product on the market that can embed audio from a secondary source onto a HDMI cable, sense and switch audio, and maintain uninterrupted 4K video. Similar solutions only allow audio and video to switch simultaneously, remain static and only embed audio, or require manual control to embed audio from a separate source.
