European Imaging and Sound Association winners announced

Matt Burns

Now this is the award show we are interested in. The European Imaging and Sound Association awards went down last week and there were big winners all the way around. Keep in mind that these models may not be available here in the States as this was for European products. Interestingly enough, Pioneer's 50-inch 1080p plasma didn't win best high-end plasma as it is just a display with no tuner. Samsung didn't repeat their achievement of winning three awards this year like they did in '05, thanks to their award winning LE40M61B LCD, but they did happen to go home with best innovation for their LED-backlit LCDs.
