PHEONIX, AZ, November 18, 2013 – Dune HD, the award-winning manufacturer of full HD media players and connected set-top boxes, today announced that the Dune HD Connect, the smallest full-featured set-top box on the market, has been named an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Portable Media Players and Accessories Category. The CES Innovations Awards recognize the most cutting-edge consumer electronics products and selected the Dune HD Connect for its engineering qualities, innovative design, aesthetic appeal, user value and unique features set.
