Roku, (Palo Alto, CA, U.S.) a consumer electronics maker, announced that all of its products have won International CES Innovations Design & Engineering Awards.

Roku's HD1000, said to be the first high-definition digital media player, allows digital media to be played on HDTV. According to Roku, the HD1000 is the only product of its kind, built for the needs and desires of HDTV owners and recognized for excellence in the video category. In addition, two new products, which Roku will unveil just prior to CES, have been praised for excellence in the audio category.

"In less than a year, our world-class design team created three of the most unique consumer electronics products at CES," said Anthony Wood, Roku founder and CEO. "We've already heard from customers, retailers, and partners who complimented the HD1000 for its ease of use and convenience in the digital living room. Now we're hearing from industry peers who put a high premium on technical elegance, as well as function and strong consumer appeal."

The CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards program recognizes the consumer electronics products in 20 categories. A panel of journalists, designers, and engineers select the winners with endorsement from the Industrial Designers Society of America.
