Merrimack, N.H. – November 27, 2006 – The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) announced that Raymarine, Inc., a world leader in marine electronics, has been named an International CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the SR100 SIRIUS Satellite Weather Receiver. The award was announced at the International CES New York Press Preview earlier this month.
The Raymarine SR100 SIRIUS Satellite Weather Receiver allows Raymarine’s acclaimed E-Series Multifunction Navigation Displays to graphically display up-to-date animated weather forecasts from SIRIUS Satellite Radio’s Marine Weather Service. The SR100 provides boaters with a range of advanced forecast information right at their fingertips, including WSI NOWRad® weather radar forecasts, storm tracks, sea surface temperature, wind, surface pressure, wave heights, lightning and much more. Raymarine is the first marine electronics manufacturer to integrate SIRIUS’ satellite weather services into its products.
“Raymarine is honored to have the SR100 SIRIUS Weather Receiver recognized by the Consumer Electronics Association,” said Terry Carlson, president of Raymarine. “We strive to develop products that provide boaters with the best experience possible when on the water and have always been known for our “firsts” in the marine electronics industry, including our HD digital fishfinder, high performance displays and network integration of onboard electronics. Receiving this award for the SR100 validates Raymarine’s continued position as a leader in bringing innovative consumer technology to the boating industry.”
The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the CEA, producer of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow. The Innovations entries are judged by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press on their engineering qualities, the intended use, value to the consumer, design qualities and unique features. “The CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Award is a validation of our venture into the world of marine electronics,” said Larry Pesce, SIRIUS senior vice president of services. “The creation of the SR100 is a milestone achievement for both SIRIUS and Raymarine.”
Raymarine’s SR100 SIRIUS Satellite Weather Receiver will be displayed at the 2007 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase will feature honorees by product category at Innovations Plus at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Booth #68747.
