Release date- 11062014 - CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) today announces its board member, Dr. Levy Gerzberg, has been recognised by the Consumer Electronics Association as one of the leaders in the industry.

As part of the CE Hall of Fame for 2014, Dr. Gerzberg has been acknowledged alongside 12 industry shapers that have steered the advancement of consumer electronics and will help direct the industry's future.

Dr. Gerzberg was recognised for his contribution during the past 30 years to the high technology industry, in areas related to digital signal processing and system-on-a-chip (SOC) platforms used in consumer electronics, communications, PCs, military and medical electronics. Co-founder of Zoran Corp, a market leader in SOCs for digital cameras, the U.S. DTV space, DVD players, printers and other consumer electronics platforms, he became a non-executive board member of semiconductor company CSR following the merger of the two companies in 2011.

'This award means a lot to me as it recognises the pioneering work made by a global team of very dedicated creative people who started more than three decades ago at Zoran and are now continuing with CSR,' said Dr. Gerzberg.

'It is an exciting time for the consumer electronics industry, particularly in health and education, as we are beginning to see the consumer become a more active participant in the creation, sharing and using of content and information, leading to remarkable innovations. We are about to observe the major impact this type of trend will have on our lives. To be part of this team of technology experts and its partners, who are improving the quality of life of many millions of consumers all over the world, is a great privilege.'

The 2014 CE Hall of Fame inductees were selected by a panel of media and industry experts. Dr. Gerzberg will be enrolled alongside fellow company founders, inventors, industry executives, journalists and retailers at the CE Hall of Fame dinner on 10th November at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, New York City.
