Even though CES is over, the IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics is just starting tomorrow in Las Vegas. There, the leaders of the team that created high definition television for Zenith will be honored with the 2006 IEEE Masaru Ibuka Consumer Electronics Award. Sponsored by Sony, the award is to recognize outstanding contributions in the field of consumer electronics.
Every time you turn on your high def TV, remember to thank Wayne Bretl, Richard Citta and Wayne Luplow, without whom none of this would have been possible.
