The 2012 NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference and Expo is the largest event in the North American marine electronics industry calendar. More than 600 dealers, technicians, distributors and manufacturers gathered together for four days of training seminars, education sessions, product introductions and business opportunities.
The expo culminates with the prestigious NMEA product award ceremony, which recognizes the best in NMEA innovation and technology. Receiving top honors from the evening was the FUSION 700 Series Marine Entertainment System, which won the coveted NMEA Technology award for FUSION’s ground breaking FUSION-Link protocol and NMEA integration.
Chris Baird, FUSION’s CEO said, “The 700 Series was a finalist in the DAME awards, received honorable mention at the Miami boat show and has now won the NMEA Technology Award, we couldn’t be more happy – this is truly a testament to FUSION’s innovation and passion for marine entertainment”.
FUSION-Link enables certified marine electronics the ability to integrate and navigate FUSION’s unique audio interface, transforming a Multi-Function Display into the control center for the entire vessel. FUSION-Link operates over existing industry networks including NMEA 2000, Ethernet and Wi-Fi. With the addition of an all-in-one-DHCP Ethernet Router, users can control their 700 Series system via a variety of mobile applications available for purchase.
