CEDIA announced Chang K. Park, founder, president and CEO of Universal Remote Control Inc. (URC) is this year’s CEDIA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Park was recognized at the CEDIA opening keynote on September 14, 2016.

The CEDIA Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an individual who has exhibited outstanding, creative, innovative and visionary leadership in the growth and advancement of the residential technology industry.

In the early days of the industry, Park foresaw the birth of the “home theater” in America and changed course to expand his company beyond producing remote controls for subscription broadcast providers and many of the world’s most recognized brands to sophisticated RF remotes and control devices for the custom installation industry.

“Not only does he create innovative, industry-recognized products, including two that are in CEDIA Product Hall of Fame, Park is also a constant champion of training programs across the board,” said Vin Bruno, CEDIA CEO.
