Actiontec products were honored in four categories:
ScreenBeam: Best New Product, Consumer Brands, Products, and Services
The ScreenBeam Wireless Display Kit lets users wirelessly display any content from a compatible laptop, tablet, or smartphone on an HDTV. ScreenBeam users can view pictures from a smartphone on a big screen HDTV, share a laptop screen with the conference room projector in the office or on the road, and watch live Internet content and videos on a living room television.
WCB3000 Wireless Network Adapter with MoCA: Best New Mobile/Wireless Product
The new WCB3000 adapter helps eliminate dead zones in a home's Wi-Fi network, so users can enjoy all their favorite devices in any room they choose. It uses a wired MoCA connection and offers dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios, giving it the best performance around for extending the home's Wi-Fi network. The WCB3000 works directly with a MoCA router; homeowners without a MoCA router can use Actiontec's MoCA Network Adapter to bring a MoCA network to their home.
