FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- IOGEAR, a leader in convergence through connectivity products, today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the 4-port Dual-View Mini DisplayPort KVMP Switch with Peripheral Sharing (GCS1924) and Wireless 3D Media Kit (GW3DMKIT). Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.

Honored in the Computer Peripherals category, the 4-port Dual-View Mini DisplayPort KVMP Switch with Peripheral Sharing charts a revolutionary new direction in KVM switch functionality by combining a 4-port Mini DisplayPort switch with a 2-port USB 2.0 hub. With this technology, the GCS1924 allows users to access four computers from a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and dual-view Mini-DisplayPort console monitors. GCS1924's independent switching feature allows the KVM focus to be on one computer while the USB peripheral focus is on another. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate USB hub or stand-alone peripheral sharing switch.

Earning honoree status in the Home Theater Audio/Video Accessories category, IOGEAR's Wireless 3D Media Kit (GW3DMKIT) brings home entertainment to a new level of connectivity, flexibility, convenience and décor. Capable of streaming Full HD 1080p / 3D content with digital audio up to 100 feet without line-of-site placement, the GW3DMKIT enables users to experience 3D, HD or standard definition content with more ease and affordability than ever before.  Wirelessly stream HD audio/video with 3D support and connect up to four different HDMI(R) A/V devices such as, 3D/Bluray players, DVR/Set-top boxes and game consoles. Total IR control creates a complete system to keep your electronics hidden away for discrete, uninhibited audio/video streaming.

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)(R), the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, and  have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The Best of Innovations honor is awarded to the products with the highest judges' scores and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES.
