Hikvision PanoVu panoramic camera wins prestigious iF Design Award
The PanoVu Panoramic Camera is recognized by a panel of renowned industry experts, praising the camera's simple design, compact structure and easy installation.
Hikvision has received a prestigious iF Design Award for its PanoVu series camera DS-2DP1636-D 16MP 360-degree panoramic camera. The annual iF Design Award is recognized as a symbol of design excellence around the world, attracting more than 5,000 submissions from 70 different countries, and is judged by a panel of over 60 design experts.
The PanoVu camera provides 360-degree distortion-free Ultra HD images with 8 x 1/1.9" Progressive Scan CMOS sensors in one camera.
This allows users to replace multiple cameras with one multi-sensor unit - curtailing costs and reducing technical complexity. Its all-in-one design further provides user-friendly installation and configuration by only one Ethernet cable and one power supply cable. Minimum illumination at 0.002 Lux in color mode means around-the-clock, 360-degree monitoring is available.
Hikvision International Marketing Director Keen Yao says the iF Design Award is a great honour and recognition of the work done by Hikvision's dedicated designers. "We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award from such an esteemed and influential organization," he says. "The PanoVu series features a simple, clean design and compact structure that provides ultra-high-definition panoramic images, seamlessly integrating video from multiple sensors in one unit. We believe it is the best equipped high-end panoramic solution on the market."
Hikvision PanoVu Series is designed for large-scale security monitoring applications such as stadiums, city centres, airports and parking lots. The product family is available in 8 MP, 180-degree and 16 MP, 360-degree variants, allowing users to select the ideal model for their specific surveillance application.
The iF Design Awards have been conferred annually since 1954. Each year, the iF International Forum Design invites submissions from around the globe in seven disciplines: Product, Packaging, Communication, Interior Architecture, Professional Concept, Service Design, and Architecture. Hikvision's award is for Surveillance Cameras in the Product discipline.
