November 11th, 2015 | Cobra Electronics | Chicago, IL

CHICAGO, IL (November 11, 2015) — Cobra Electronics Corporation, the leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced  it has been recognized as a CES 2016 Innovations Award Honoree for its DSP 9200 BT Digital Radar Detection system in the Vehicle Intelligence category. The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 27 product categories.

The DSP 9200 BT is the most advanced system in its class and the company’s first digital detector, improving on detector range and performance. It embeds advanced technology for precise notifications through Digital Signal Processing (DSP), which identifies alerts from unwanted noise for greater reliability and frequency. The unit scored highly across all judging criteria, and it joins a small percentage of other products that are given this honor each year. Products are judged based upon several criteria including, but not limited to: engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use or function and user value, unique or novel features consumers would find attractive and how it directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

“The DSP 9200 BT is the first detection system developed by the company that leverages the advanced precision and power of DSP technology, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be recognized by the most prominent awards committee in the CE industry for our constant improvements to our new and existing product lines,” said Sally Washlow, president. “We look forward to displaying the DSP 9200 BT throughout CES and at the corresponding press events to kick-off 2016.”

The Innovations Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow. Cobra Electronics’ DSP 9200 BT can be seen throughout CES at Tech West in the Innovation Awards Showcase at Sands, Level 1, Booth 833139. CES 2016 Innovation Honoree products are also featured on CESweb.org/Innovation.

The DSP 9200 BT is available now at Amazon, Best Buy and Cobra.com for retail price of $399.95.
