Archerfish by Cernium Selected as CES Innovations 2009 Design and Engineering Award Honoree

RESTON, Va., Nov 12, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- In a press conference held at the Metropolitan Pavilion Center in New York City yesterday, Archerfish(TM) by Cernium was announced as an International CES 2009 Innovations Design and Engineering Award honoree. Since 1976, the Innovations Awards have been a hallmark for the best designed products in consumer technology.
A winner in the Integrated Home Systems product category, Archerfish is the first and only mobile video intelligence (MVI) solution. Its advanced technology allows users to keep an eye on their business and home locations no matter where they are physically located, delivering the ultimate place-shifting experience.
"The 2009 Innovations award honorees represent the most inventive design and engineering-focused consumer technology products available on the market today," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA. "It's a testament to our industry that the CES Innovations awards program continues to expand and grow, with new technologies and new innovators emerging each year. We look forward to showcasing these products to all attendees at the 2009 International CES."
Archerfish is the first consumer solution smart enough to 'watch' and analyze videos from cameras placed in one or more business or home locations. If and only when something meaningful occurs, Archerfish finds users and notifies them with text and event video. Archerfish users don't have to physically be on site to know if the remote office opened on time or if the kids arrived home safely. Unlike traditional video systems, Archerfish doesn't require users to watch video all day or rely on primitive motion alarms to know what's going on. Instead, it applies technology that allows users to define the events they wish to be informed about and how they wish to be informed. With Archerfish, consumers can continue with their lives, knowing they will be notified in real time when events they define occur -- no matter where they may be. Archerfish watches over the people and places that consumers work so hard for, enabling better lifestyle management, greater security and more peace of mind.
"The need to know about and manage events in our lives, wherever we happen to be, is greater than ever," said Craig Chambers, president and CEO of Cernium Corporation. "Archerfish combines the best of video, wireless and web-based technology to help consumers keep up with their world in a simple and convenient new way. We are honored that CES has recognized its unique value and its potential to change the way we use video in our lives."
Archerfish will premiere at CES in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall Two, in Booth #26519. To learn more about Archerfish, or phone 703-483-3393.
