 Mobotix Hemispheric Camera Q22
Red dot award: product design 2009 presented to Mobotix Hemispheric Camera Q22
In one of the most renowned and hardest international design competitions, the red dot design award, the Hemispheric Camera Q22 by Mobotix has just received an honourable mention from the top-class expert jury. With 3,231 products submitted to the competition, the product clearly stands out from the masses, because the design experts awarded 194 honourable mentions to those products which distinguished themselves with particularly successful design details. The festive awards presentation with more than 1,000 guests will take place in the Essen Opera House, the Aalto-Theatre, on 29 June 2009.

With the innovative Mobotix Hemispheric Technology, an entire room can be ideally monitored. For instance, one single, and particularly elegant and discreet, Q22 for only 698 euro replaces the time-consuming and expensive installation of several standard cameras. This world novelty demonstrates again the innovative strength of Mobotix as a global leader for megapixel video security systems.

"Successful products are in so far different from less successful products that they can survive in the real world," explains design expert Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator of the red dot design award. "Successful participation in a design competition can already be an initial sign of a product's later commercial success, because these competitions allow an objectification of otherwise often very subjective design decisions." Receiving an honourable mention in an internationally renowned design competition such as the red dot design award was therefore an important indicator whether a product had the potential to succeed internationally.

Products submitted to the red dot design award are assessed by an international jury consisting of renowned design experts. They examine and test the products and assess them according to criteria such as degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, longevity, ecological compatibility and clarity of function. This year companies from 49 countries with a total of 3,231 products faced the judgement of the jury.

The exhibition of the winning products in the red dot design museum

All award-winning and honoured products will be on display from 29 June to 26 July 2009 in the exhibition "Design on stage - winners red dot award: product design 2009" at the red dot design museum on the premises of the "Zeche Zollverein" World Cultural Heritage Site. With approximately 1,500 products on more than 4,000 square metres, the red dot design museum houses the largest permanent exhibition of contemporary design worldwide.

The red dot design award

Today, the red dot design award, the origins of which go back to 1955, is the largest and most renowned design competition worldwide. It consists of the individual disciplines "red dot award: product design", "red dot award: communication design", and "red dot award: design concept". In 2008 the competition recorded around 11,000 entries from 61 nations in total.
