In this comprehensive CE Pro 100 brand analysis series, CE Pro senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in nearly 50 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.

The brands that are used by the CE Pro 100 are closely watched because these are the most successful companies in the industry. Many integrators look to the brands that are being used by these companies as a signal of success. This brand usage differs from rank and file integrator usage because it does not include brands that are sold through distribution typically, but focuses on direct-to-dealer brands.

Sony and Epson increase their CE Pro 100 share by one-third and 20 percent, respectively. Digital Projection has an approximate 9 percent growth in its dealer numbers, while JVC/JVC Pro maintains its solid footing. Runco’s dealer base has gone in the opposite direction, but a full 20 percent still rely on the pioneering brand. Sony’s growth may also reflect its support of native 4K.
