Attention media representatives,

CEATEC AWARD 2011
Winners Decided! Grand Prix!
These are the Next-generation Technology and Products of the Persevering Japan
This year has yet again seen the latest technology, products and services from 586 companies and organizations, both domestic and foreign, put on display at CEATEC JAPAN. Among these, there are many original and innovative pieces of technology, products and services. These are expanding hopes and dreams in our lifestyles and also in industry and society.
This year, Japan was hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The country is looking to this technology to pour efforts into earthquake reconstruction and to create a new Japan. Therefore, CEATEC JAPAN has set the promotion slogan of "Safe, Secure and Smart Society Proposed by the IT and Electronics Industries," and as one means of expressing this philosophy, we would like to contribute to a robust Japan by the creation of our unique awards, starting from this year.
A Grand Prix winner and Semi-Grand Prix winners were chosen from each category of products (services) that are facilitating a robust Japan which is currently persevering. These decisions were made through fair and impartial discussions without restraint that took place on October 4 by a Review Panel made up of experts that have spent many years watching technological trends in IT and electronics. In addition, a product that was strongly recommended by panel members was selected for the Review Panel's Special Prize.
The Review Panel also plunged into discussions about the identity as awards that are distinctive of CEATEC and serious talks took place about what is technology that is original and innovative and which can also truly help to bring robustness to Japan.
In addition, each member of the media that come to cover these awards confirmed this with their own eyes and specially selected a Grand Prix as a Media Ballot Category. This was chosen with a direct vote.
Below, we announce the products (services) that won each award and the selection commentary.
