Munich – The DINION HD 1080p Day/Night surveillance camera from Bosch Security Systems will be honored with two prestigious awards for its outstanding product design: the German Design Award and the Dutch Good Industrial Design Award. Both juries, comprised of highly renowned design experts, emphasized the great attention to detail in all components, ranging from the lens and image sensor down to the casing.

The German Design Award is the German Design Council's highest international form of recognition and will be granted on 15 February 2013 in Frankfurt/Main. The DINION HD 1080p's remarkable and innovative design set it apart from the competition in the “Industrial Goods and Materials” category. The jury recognized the camera for supplying HD images with excellent color differentiation, even in moderate lighting conditions. The product also impressed with its precise execution, seamless transitions and clear lines.

The Good Industrial Design Award is the hallmark for industrial design in the Netherlands. The DINION HD 1080p is honored in the “Professional Products” category. The prize, which is awarded annually by the Design Cooperation Brainport at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, celebrates products that display a high level of craftsmanship and professional expertise.

Bosch Security Systems' design expertise is founded on many years of experience and commitment. In 2010, the award-winning DINION HD 1080p replaced the iconic DINION camera, which had dominated the surveillance appliances market for years. The concept focuses primarily on strong design elements that are carried out throughout the series, building a strong Bosch brand identity. The new camera boasts fully redesigned casing, providing enough space for the sophisticated high-definition technology inside.

“To us, design is more than just beautiful appearance. It is also a unique selling point,” explains Ad Biemans, Product Marketing Manager at Bosch Security Systems. “We want to be successful in the premium segment of the surveillance camera market. Therefore our professional HD cameras are designed with utmost attention to detail and are expressions of the pure Bosch brand identity.”

In the industry, the DINION HD 1080p is recognized for its best-in-class digital imaging technology, delivering high-resolution images even under challenging lighting conditions. The camera uses the latest CMOS-based HD sensor for a sharper, more detailed picture with a 16:9 image format. Multicasting, Internet streaming and iSCSI recording (CCTV storage) are all fully supported, and the camera's built-in Intelligent Video Analysis incorporates features like “idle object”, “line crossing”, “flow detection” and “crowd detection” to help operators monitor highly frequented environments.

Bosch Security Systems' design of the DINION HD 1080p camera has been recognized repeatedly by international award bodies. In 2012 it received the red dot design award for its elaborate and innovative product design. This year also, the camera received the MTP Gold Medal Award, given at the trade fair Miedzynarodowe Targi Poznanskie in Poznan, Poland. In 2011, the DINION HD 1080p won the GOOD DESIGNTM Award in the “Protective Equipment” category. It is awarded annually by the museum 'The Chicago Athenaeum and Design' and the 'European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies'.
