LG Electronics and Canon earn recognition in EISA AwardsAugust 18, 2018
Canon & LG Electronics’ (LG) innovations in AI technology and design is honored to have been awarded prestigious accolades from the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA).
What is the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA)?
EISA is the unique association of 53 special interest magazines from 25 countries. Internationally known for the European EISA Awards, EISA started in 1982. Internationally known for the European EISA awards, it represents the largest editorial collaboration in the world for consumer electronics. EISA has been celebrating the very best products in the industry for over 35 years.
In 2013 EISA did make some changes on its internal organization so that our structure could reflect better the changes that have happened in the market along the last years and we have decided to replace the previous arrangement of members distributed by several panels to members belonging to Expert Groups. The new Expert Groups define better the expertise of the EISA members and make it more flexible for members to participate in discussions having to do directly with the field of expertise they represent. The result will be stronger, better, and more relevant EISA Awards, and easier to implement combined awards that join together opinions from different Expert Groups.
