“Financier John de Neufville sold his West Village townhouse for over $17 million last month, but not before tricking it out with the most comprehensive home-automation suite money—lots of money—can buy.

Cliqk Wins "Retail Innovator" ProAV Spotlight Award - July 16, 2012
Sound and Video Contractor awarded Cliqk Design Group with its prestigious ProAV Spotlight Award for Retail Technology Innovation. SVC recognized Cliqk’s creative use of technology and design in the fitting rooms of the C. Wonder flagship store in New York City.
Seamlessly integrated into each fitting room wall, the Cliqk touchscreen interface invites customers to choose from different lighting and music ‘moods’ and allows them to call for an attendant. The design also incorporates motion sensors that activate a lighting and music preset scene and automatically turns on the touchscreen, drawing the viewer’s attention.
"The winning entries reflect the ability to really understand the retail customer,” said Cynthia Wisehart, editor of Sound and Video Contractor. “They have a driving human element and were ultimately about modern communication and how AV can transform it."
Adds Mark Hernandez, President and Founder of Cliqk: “Twenty first century retailing requires a customized experience to engage customers, and technology is key to creating that experience. We are proud to have created an award-winning design that is now an integral part of our client’s brand identity.”
Entries were judged by a panel of architects, architectural lighting and professional audio/video editors, contributors, and systems integrators. Winners demonstrated effective collaboration among professionals and end-users, as well as technical innovation and design excellence. (http://facebook.com/cliqk)
