EISA Awards 2021-22: recognising performance and innovation in Consumer Electronics

EISA, the Expert Imaging & Sound Association has revealed the winners of its 2021-2022 Awards. Technical experts from 60 leading specialist magazines and websites in 29 countries have recognised and awarded no fewer than 86 products as the best in their categories.

These include the EISA BEST BUY SOUNDBAR, EISA WIRELESS FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKERS, EISA CAMERA OF THE YEAR, EISA MULTIMEDIA SMARTPHONE and EISA BEST GAMING TV 

For nearly 40 years, EISA has been selecting the most innovative, cutting-edge products for its prestigious awards. The Awards are debated and voted upon by groups of specialist judging panels covering the full spectrum of consumer electronics products, including Hi-Fi, Home Theatre Audio and Video, In-Car Electronics, Photography and Mobile Devices.

Key to the success and relevance of the annual EISA Awards lies in the evolution of its categories, always reflecting the changing trends and technologies of the consumer electronics world. 

Moreover, the Association itself continues to evolve and expand. In 2018 EISA welcomed new members from India, Japan and Hong Kong/China just as the old EISA acronym (European Imaging and Sound Association) became the Expert Sound and Imaging Association. During 2019, the Association swelled its ranks with additional members from the USA, Poland, Norway, Italy and Russia – enlarging EISA’s global footprint still further. 

To win an EISA award all products undergo a comprehensive multi-step judging process. So, while EISA’s annual Convention in Antwerp in May and Awards Meeting in June were, once again, both cancelled due to the pandemic, the comprehensiveness of the Association’s product testing was not diminished. EISA hosted no fewer than 40 webinars that put new technologies, and brands, in front of its expert editorial audience.
