After a decidedly ‘tight at the top’ scenario last year, Blustream has pulled away to secure this award this year. Extron has dropped from second to sixth while Crestron falls two places to third. Wyrestorm debuts and takes out second place. HDAnyware holds its fourth place position while AVPro Edge is another new entrant at fifth.

Blustream has managed to increase its vote to take out the Video Scaler category for this year. Last year’s winner Extron has fallen to fifth place while HDAnyware drops one place to fourth. Crestron, who didn’t feature last year, and Kramer take second and third place respectively. Again, Gefen, AV Gear and Pro2 drop from the list and AVPro Edge debuts.

Not only has Blustream improved its 2019 placing but it has powered ahead of its nearest challenger Crestron while last year’s winner Gefen has dropped off the board completely. Wyrestorm debuts on the board, taking third place while Kramer and Extron remain solid in list. AVPro Edge is a new entry in fifth. Last year’s debutants HDAnyware and DVDO have slipped off the board.

Blustream has carved out its dominance in this category, racking up its fifth award in a row this year. HDAnyware climbs one place to second while Crestron returns to the list, taking third place. 2019 runner-up Extron remains in the list in fourth place while RTI and AVPro Edge debut, pushing AV Gear, Kramer, Gefen and Control 4 drop from the list.

After a winning debut last year, Blustream has backed up that win with another one this year, seeing off close competition from two-time winners Extron and AVPro Edge. The remainder of the list remains the same with the exception of last year’s third ranked Gefen which has dropped off the list completely.

Sonos has gone back-to-back in this category holding off close competition from Blustream and Crestron (back in the leader board after an absence in 2019). Last year’s runner-up Yamaha drops to fourth while third placed Heos drops from the list again. Control 4 maintains its fifth place rank while Extron and RTI disappear from the results.
