Company Ken Oh Corporation Named As CES Innovations 2013 Design And Engineering Award Honoree

http://news.yahoo.com/company-ken-oh-corporation-named-ces-innovations-2013-170044909.html

NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ken Oh Corporation today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for SmartSound Case in the Wireless Handset Accessories product category. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.

Here's a special case study (pun intended!) – the SmartSound Case. What's so special about just another smartphone case? Well, our patented design is so revolutionary that the SmartSound Case is the first ever smartphone case that provides passive amplification of the sound from the phone's speakers without any need for an external power source.

Often, you find yourself in situations where the loudest setting on your smartphone is not loud enough due to ambient noise, source material volume limit, or both. This is where the SmartSound Case shines – open up the kickstand and the sound is instantly amplified by the stand which acts like a horn speaker.

This built-in kickstand may be the quickest unfolding yet durable smartphone kickstand in existence – a perfect complement for using Skype and FaceTime, or watching videos on Netflix or YouTube... all the while you enjoy the sound naturally amplified by the SmartSound Case's ingenious design.

Unique Additional Features includes Camera Flash Reflector that maximizes the brightness of the flash when taking pictures or used with a flashlight app and Detachable Camera Lens Cover (imprinted with animal characters) that protects from fingerprints, scratches and dust. Our product can be customized for major smartphone brands.

Ken Oh, CEO of Ken Oh Corporation noted, "It is a great honor to receive such an award and it will motivate us to continue creating more innovative products that people can enjoy."

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, 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.

Ken Oh Corporation's SmartSound Case will be displayed in The Venetian 3 Lvl-75102 at the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees were also displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
  • Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided
  • The product's intended use/function and user value
  • Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
  • How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace

Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.

Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering honoree products are featured on http://cesweb.org/Awards/CES-Innovations-Awards.aspx, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, designer, description, photo and URL.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
